Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits that he has a headache trying to fit new signing Emiliano Tade into the team after the forward made a scoring debut for the Brazilians.

Argentine striker Tade was only signed by Masandawana from Amazulu on Wednesday and he immediately made an impact at the club as he scored the final goal in a 3-1 victory over ASEC Mimosas in the CAF Champions League on Friday.

Tade only arrived in the Absa Premiership at the start of this season when he joined Usuthu and showed a keen eye for a goal which encouraged Sundowns to buy him in the January window.

However, with little known about the player, Mosimane is trying to figure out where to fit him in Sundowns' system.

Mosimane said: "The biggest challenge for me is where to play him because he is not a winger. He is not a No.9. He is a No.10, and Gaston Sirino is playing really well as a No.10 for us.

"He comes with a lot of experience and a lot of goals. The most important aspect is to fit in the team."

Mosimane though said he couldn't ask for more from the player on his debut after he netted soon after coming on as a substitute against ASEC.

The Sundowns mentor continued: "You can't ask for more from Emiliano. 10 minutes on the pitch and he looks like he has been playing for Sundowns for long, never mind the goal.

"He is composed, and he knows how to play football. He is a typical South American. What a way of introducing yourself to the team."
