Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns and the SA under-23 side have reached a compromise regarding Keagan Dolly's availability ahead of the Rio Olympics in August.
The 23-year-old midfielder has been in demand at both club and national team level, with Sundowns set to resume their CAF Champions League duties next week, after their reinstatement, and Amaglug-Glug undergoing preparations for the tournament in Brazil.
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admitted, earlier this week, that it was going to be difficult to release the under-23 captain, who featured in every single match for the Brazilians this season, to join Owen Da Gama's team for the Olympics.
However, the former Ajax Cape Town star reveals that an agreement has been reached to ensure that all parties involved are happy.
"I spoke to coach Owen (da Gama) and to coach Pitso (Mosimane) and we managed to find a solution," Dolly told reporters.
"There're a few camps where I will be joining the under-23s and then there are other times I will be with my team in the Champions League."
Under-23 coach Da Gama added: "For now Keagan will not be part of Cosafa. It's a compromise. We've got to allow Sundowns to go to the highest possible level."
"As much as Brazil respect Neymar, we respect Dolly. Neymar is not part of the friendly matches, so we understand that it's important to reach a compromise. Keagan wants to be part of the team, but he will come whenever he can."
