Downs hunting Dolly replacement
Posted: 14 March 2017 Time: 14:59
Mamelodi Sundowns have started the hunt for a natural left-footed attacking player to replace Keagan Dolly.
Dolly left Sundowns during the January transfer window to join French club Montpellier, leaving The Brazilians thin on the left wing.
Though Percy Tau is also left-footed, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane feels he is better suited to playing in a more central role that allows him to get in the box more often and score goals.
Word from the club is that they need a player with a ‘profile’ similar to that of the mobile Dolly.
The identified replacement will then be brought to Chloorkop over the next transfer window, which opens up during the winter break.
The search will prioritise local players, with two men having already been identified, one of which is Deolin Mekoa of Maritzburg United.
