Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane: Rheece Evans must be patient

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has urged defender Rheece Evans to be patient and wait for his opportunity at the Telkom Knockout champions.
Evans' career has stagnated at Sundowns since his arrival from Maritzburg United in June 2014.
The 25-year-old only registered 44 minutes of League action last season, and is yet to feature this campaign.
And while Maritzburg want to bring Evans back to the club, Mosimane has reminded the player of his pledge to fight for game-time at the Brazilians.
“We can't release everybody because everybody speaks out. Rheece can have fun with you there and it looks nice, it's okay,” says Mosimane.
“Rheece Evans came to Sundowns and he was not forced to come to Sundowns. I asked him if he wants to come here and compete. You see yourself breaking into the team? Do you know you might not break into the team easily? All of these questions were addressed.
“He said, no coach, I want to come, I want to play with the best, I want to try my luck. Sometimes when things don’t work out, now it's a different story when it is with you. It's not the story I had with him. He has to be patient and play.”
Evans, who nearly joined Ajax Cape Town in the previous transfer window, is competing with Downs captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Siyanda Zwane and Asavela Mbekile for the right-back position at Chloorkop.
