Major personnel boost for Sundowns


Mamelodi Sundowns have received a major boost in their aspirations of retaining the league title following the return of striker Gift Motupa.

Motupa arrived at Sundowns as one of their big signings from Bidvest Wits before the season started but was carrying an injury, before he then got involved in a car accident in Limpopo late last year.

The former Orlando Pirates star survived the accident with minor injuries, and Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi has now confirmed that Motupa is back at training.

"He has started light training. He should start full-time training [this week]," Mngqithi told the media.

Sundowns have also welcomed back midfielder Gaston Sirino following the end of his saga with Al Ahly following the termination of transfer talks between the two clubs.

The Uruguayan was on the bench for the 3-1 victory over Jwaneng Galaxy in the CAF Champions League on Tuesday.
