Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has commented on Anthony Laffor's readiness to return ahead of the big game against Al Ahly.
The 35-year-old is yet to kick a ball for Sundowns during this campaign after picking up a long-term injury last season but is now back in full training and available for selection.
Mosimane has confirmed that 'Snoti' is back at training but admits his match-fitness is still a concern.
"Snoti is here but he hasn't played a match. You saw in Cairo, I have never seen Lebo [Maboe] working so hard. Lebo and Mshishi [Themba Zwane] worked so hard in Cairo. You go in, you come back," says Mosimane.
"I don't think Snoti at this point in time [is ready to play]. Anthony doesn't have conditioning for that. He is a good football player we know and also consider the age factor. We have good memories of him scoring goals and doing that.
"It's a different game [now]. It's power, you need the speed of the legs. Probably he needs a game to play here. Unfortunately he was not ready when we played VUT [in the Nedbank Cup]."
Sundowns have welcomed back Rivaldo Coetzee and Anele Ngcongca from injury and they are available for selection for the CAF Champions League quarter-final, second leg at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday (15h00).
