Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has compared Phakamani Mahlambi to Percy Tau and Khama Billiat, but admitted he still has plenty of work to do.

Mahlambi signed for Sundowns from Al Ahly on deadline day in the recent transfer window. He opened his account for the Brazilians with a goal in Sunday's 3-3 draw with AmaZulu.

Shortly before half-time, he was presented with an opportunity to score his second of the game, but Usuthu's Mbongeni Gumede was able to recover and clear the danger.

"He was supposed to score and that's why we have him here," Mosimane told reporters of the 21-year-old.

"He did well, first game, first goal, good.

"I think he should have scored the other one in the first half again. He allowed the defender to come from behind and take the ball from him.

"Good player, young, very, very raw. Very, very raw. He needs a lot of work and he reminds me of Percy Tau when he came. Even Khama Billiat, a lot of work.

"Spending a year or two with me, I think we are going to get a better product for South Africa."
