Mamelodi Sundowns defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele says he is confident over his form for Downs

Posted: 15 January 2013 Time: 15:53

Mamelodi Sundowns defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele says he is confident his second spell with the Brazilians will be a success.

The former Under-23 captain has returned to the club after a brief loan spell at University of Pretoria.

Mphahlele was supposed to spend the whole season with AmaTuks, but Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has brought him back earlier than expected with Wandisile Letlabika going the other way.

'Rama' started training with Sundowns today and he tells that he had a brief chat with Mosimane, who promised him a fair chance.

"I spoke to the coach today and he told me he has plans for me. All I must do now is to work hard, knowing that there are other right backs in the team," he says.

"The reason Pitso brought me back is he wants to give me another chance and he feels I can help the team," says Mphahlele, who made eight starts for Sundowns in all competitions last season before he was deemed surplus to requirements by the club’s former coach Johan Neeskens.

Mphahlele was enjoying his game at AmaTuks where he made 14 League starts out of 16 and he says he is hoping he will carry on from where he left off.

"I will knuckle down to hard work, but I’m positive I will make it," he enthuses. I did well [for Sundowns] the last time I was here, but I was affected by injuries."

We shall see how you will knuckle down to hard work because Mampuru has already passed knuckling down, unless if he is injured. Those silly tackles of yours will also knuckle you very deep down. If only you had a choice and stay at Tuks mfana! YELLOW IS THE COLOR OF CHOICE!! KBY.
