The month of July has come and gone and with it, a lot has happened in the Mamelodi Sundowns camp. Training in small groups was permitted and the Brazilians made their way to Rustenburg for camp in preparations for the resumption of football.
Adjusting to the “New Normal” was the talk of the camp as the boys had to adjust with the new ways of training under social distance and that challenged the technical team into coming up with new and innovative ways and that is what Coach Pitso Mosimane highlighted.
To build a strong and formidable force one has to make an addition that will come and make the institution stronger and that was the case as new faces joined. George Makuleka joined on a 3-year deal, Lesedi Kapinga also was announced as a new recruit on 5 year-deal to bolster the playing personnel.
Masandawana also welcomed back the prodigal son, Coach Rulani Mokwena. Youngster Malebogo Modise was promoted from the Multichoice Diski team and the youth international signed a 5-year deal and follows in the footsteps of Keletso Makalgwa, Sphelele Mkhulise, Motjeka Madisha, Abram Ngcobo, Nicholus Lukhubeni, Promise Mkhuma, Harold Majadibodu and Percy Tau who have come through our youth structures.
Ricardo Nascimento extended his stay with for a further three years, Sibusiso Vilakazi also penned a four-year contract. The two-players joined the likes of Gaston Sirino and Thapelo Morena who extended their contracts with Sundowns in June.
