Pitso: We have good memories of Laffor

CAF Champions League

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).
