Former Sundowns Defender’s Advice To Lebusa

Clayton Daniels

Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Clayton Daniels has advised Musa Lebusa to keep his leadership qualities despite not getting enough game time at the club. Lebusa has made six appearances this season in all competitions for Sundowns.

The Brazilians technical team has preferred the centre-back partnership of Grant Kekana and Rushine De Reuck in most matches. The last game for Lebusa was when Sundowns beats Royal AM 4-0 at Chatsworth Stadium. Daniels says at Sundowns, the competition take place every day because of the quality players they have In their squad.

“My advice [is] you have to compete every day at training because you among the best of the best even though they [are] talented. You have to have a certain level of mentality to compete on a daily basis for you to start playing in most of the games,” Daniels told ThisIsFootball.Africa

“Musa [Lebusa] is a hard worker he [is] a leader but I know and I can see that he is trying to get back into the team. But there is this thing at Sundowns when it is your time it’s your time. Musa had his time and injuries.

Daniels added: “[Reshine] De Reuck is coming in, Grant [Kekana] is coming in as both new centre-backs and they have to play to see if they [are] at the level of the group. We know Musa’s quality, but my advice for him even though he [is] not playing, is now you  have to be that leader. He has to train at his level best and not give in to say [it] is not his time now. Because in football, you can’t be playing six months then boom, when they give you your chance, then the worst thing to  happen is if you are not ready.”

The 30-year-old Lebusa, captained Masandawana on numerous matches after the departure of Hlompho Kekana and it is now time for him to heed the advice of Daniels.
