Mamelodi Sundowns winger George Lebese is hoping to get more regular game time at the club next season.

Lebese says coach Pitso Mosimane has explained why he didn’t feature regularly last season.

“It was disappointing not to play as much as I would have liked this past season,” Lebese told media at the launch of the Shell Helix Ultra Cup.

“But the difference is management by the coach. It’s easier to deal with since the coach explained to me why I am not featured. For now I just need to get into the team and play.”

“The first season was a learning curve for me at Sundowns. I didn’t get as many game time as I would have loved to, but I accepted. When I was told to lose weight it came as a surprise because I thought that I was fit enough to play. I was told to lose two to three kilos. I had to cut down on the food and train four times a day.”
