Sundowns utility man still in the dark

Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Asavela Mbekile says he is in the dark regarding his future at the Absa Premiership champions.
Mbekile's contract with Sundowns is expiring in June, but the club is yet to indicate whether they will keep the former Moroka Swallows man at Chloorkop.
The versatile 31-year-old hopes to soon get clarity from his agent Tim Sukazi on the way forward.
"It [the contract] expires [in June] but I don't know what is going on at the moment," Mbekile says.
"My agent is currently outside the country and I will hear from him when he comes back."
Mbekile contributed to Downs' CAF Champions League triumph in 2016 but has been a peripheral figure in 2017/18. He admits it has not been easy watching the action from afar.
"They have not said anything. I have no idea [why he has not been playing]. I think the other players that were playing before me were doing well. Maybe that's why the coach [Pitso Mosimane] didn't change the team. He couldn't change a winning formula and that's why maybe I was not part of the team.
"It has not been one of the best seasons. It's been tough but luckily I have people who support me and their support really helped."
