Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has hinted that defender Motjeka Madisha could go out on loan when the January transfer window period re-opens next year.
Madisha has failed to break into Sundowns' starting line-up since being promoted to the first team this season. The former Amajita captain spent last season on loan to Highlands Park in the National First Division.
Mosimane believes that a loan move for Madisha could benefit his career in the same way it did with midfielder Percy Tau who spent last season on loan to NFD side Witbank Spurs.
"Madisha could go on loan maybe in December,” says Mosimane.
"Madisha is not ready, he has to go there and hustle. Percy went to hustle in Witbank Spurs.”
'Jingles' remains boastful about his squad this season and says a player needs to be versatile in order to be part of the Brazilians' squad.
"When you come to Sundowns, if you are going to play in one position, you are going to find yourself in the grand-stand because there are too many good players,” he adds.
“You have to fight to play elsewhere, if you can’t play here then go find somewhere to play.”
The former Bafana Bafana coach has converted Thapelo Morena from right-wing to right-back in the last few games and the former Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder has grabbed his chance with both hands.
"Thapelo [Morena] got to play right-back, he has speed and can mark, so go to right-back my friend because if you are going to wait to play in the right-wing you are fighting with [Anthony] Laffor and Khama [Billiat] when he is there.
"We still have [Themba] Zwane who is a very good player, you have to be refined to find a position up there because everybody can play,” says 'Jingles'.
"You must take your position. [Asavela] Mbekile in the national team is playing as right-back.
“This is what I told Pa [Siboniso Gaxa] when I was still at SuperSport United, I said if you want play in the World Cup go to right-back but he said ‘but coach I marked [Collins] Mbesuma out and got my name'.
“You remember that, he did very well, but I said to him 'you don’t have the body and height to play against [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, they are going put you in their pocket, go to right-back.”
