Vilakazi will give Pitso a 'good headache'

Sibusiso Vilakazi (TEAMtalk)

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns legend, Esrom 'Yellowman' Nyandoro, believes Sibusiso Vilakazi's arrival at the club from Wits will present something of a selection dilemma for coach Pitso Mosimane in midfield.

The midfielder signed a three-year deal with a option to extend for another two years and attended his first training session on Sunday. The Bafana Bafana international made 27 Premiership appearances for the Clever Boys last season and scored seven goals.

Nonetheless, Nyandoro believes that Vilakazi's arrival presents Sundowns with something of a dilemma about who to play in central midfield.

With Hlompho Kekana the undisputed holding midfielder, juggling the likes of Themba Zwane, Asavela Mbekile, Teko Modise and Vilakazi ahead of him will be key.

Nyandoro told Vodacom Soccer: "There's no doubt about Vilakazi's capabilities. He can give you goals. Any team would want him. Well done Sundowns for getting him - they wanted him for a long time.

"If the player wants to win trophies, there's no better team to go to. It's a good headache for Pitso who is a clever coach. Maybe he'll play 'Vila' as a winger who comes inside like Zwane. Pitso knows what to do."
