The president of Mamelodi Sundowns, Patrice Motsepe, has welcomed new signing Sibusiso Vilakazi to the club.
Vilakazi finally completed his move to the Brazilians from Bidvest Wits this past weekend, thereby ending speculation on his future.
“We are excited to welcome Sibusiso Vilakazi to the Mamelodi Sundowns family. We have been monitoring him for quite some time, and I am confident that he will make a huge contribution to the growth and success of Sundowns. We are now taking a longer time monitoring and assessing players who we think will fit in with our style and culture of play before we acquire them,” Motsepe told the club’s website.
The Sundowns president also welcomed Lucky Mohomi and Ricardo Nascimento to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Mohomi and Nascimento were acquired from Free State Stars and Academica, respectively.
“We have made mistakes in the past, and we hope that we have learned from our mistakes. We are also very happy to welcome Lucky Mohomi and Ricardo Nascimento to Mamelodi Sundowns. What excites me a lot about Mohomi is not only that he is an excellent player but also that he comes from Mamelodi, which is where Sundowns has its roots.
“Ricardo is a very good player that we have been assessing for the past two years. South African football is becoming much more competitive, and I think the upcoming football season is most probably going to be the toughest in many years.”
