Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says star midfielder Keagan Dolly needs a little bit more time before considering a move to Europe.

Dolly, who has not been at his best in recent games, was substituted again in the 70th minute during Sundowns’ 1-0 win over Chippa United in the MTN8 semifinal second leg at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.

“The ball was not falling for Keagan. He’s not been playing very well in the last two games, even in Zambia, but I told him this happens. It’s part of football, he’s young, he must understand,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

“This is what he learns before everybody must speak about Keagan playing overseas and giving him that kind of idea [overseas move] when he’s not yet ready.

“He needs a little bit of time because you need to be able to be deal with this before you go overseas.

“Great player, no doubt about it, he’s helped us a lot, but it’s a learning curve also for everybody who’s making a lot of noise that Keagan must go overseas. He needs more time.”
