GladAfrica Championship

Cosmos signed Kassiano Soares Mendonca, Lucas Fernandez and Luri Barbosa, all from Brazil during the off-season to bolster their squad.

The trio made their debut for EzeNkosi, who played to a goalless draw against Cape Town Spurs in Johannesburg on Sunday.

Cosmos are currently languishing at the bottom of the GladAfrica Championship log with just one point from three matches played.

"They only made their debut yesterday," Sono tells KickOff.com.

"They are very good players. They're still trying to acclimatise but so far so good, and they are looking good.

"They helped us a lot yesterday, and we were unlucky not to win.

"It's always the case when you coach a young team. You need to exercise great leadership. I have been through this before.

"We lost the first game because we were robbed, the second game we lost fair and square. After losing two matches in succession, the youngsters will always become nervous, but I am happy they are adjusting well," Sono added.

Despite starting the season on a poor note 'Mjomane' is confident that his team will do well this season in their quest for promotion to PSL next season.

"We are fighting for number 1,2, or 3 and nothing else."
