Cape Town - Mamelodi
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is reportedly interested in getting in
touch with Turkey-based Bafana Bafana midfielder Lebogang Manyama.
The 27-year-old was the top goal scorer in the Absa Premiership last season after
netting 13 league goals for Cape Town City, also captaining the side to
glory in the Telkom Knockout.
He was also named as the 2016/ 17 PSL Player of the Season, and became a regular in the national team.
A move to club Konyaspor gave Manyama the chance to pursue his career
in Europe. But he's struggled for game-time in Turkey's top flight and
has only featured in seven (six of those off the bench) of 30 league
matches, with his club above the relegation zone only on goal
Mosimane has meanwhile been known to be a keen admirer of Manyama and
although the Brazilians mentor has not commented personally on the
matter, a source quoted by the Citizen publication claims the
former Ajax Cape Town and Black Aces winger is a player who the Sundowns
coach would potentially be interested in bringing to Pretoria.
"He wants to talk to him face-to-face first and find out if he is
still the kind of player he can work with. Pitso wants to recruit only
players he has some kind of chemistry with because he doesn't want
unhappy players in his team," said the source.
