Having fully recovered from his injury concerns Mosa Lebusa is staking his claim for a regular spot in the Mamelodi Sundowns line-up.
Sundowns have the best defensive record in the DStv Premiership, and Lebusa admits when a defence is doing well, it’s not that easy to get back into the team.
But the former Ajax Cape Town defender has worked hard and has featured regularly in 2021 for the unbeaten league leaders.
“It took me about three months to make my first start as I was out and that was frustrating for me,” Lebusa told the club’s website.
“The team was doing well, if you remember there was a time when the team went about five games without conceding, and there is no chance as a defender for you to come in as the guys were doing well. The injuries were also not giving me a chance, it was frustrating at times but I was happy the team was doing well.”
“The teams have seen what we are about, every team we play wants to beat us and that makes the games a bit more difficult.”
“I would not say it is only the defence that must get credit if you look at the way we play we press from the top. The guys up front are the ones that initiate the press, the whole team is doing the defensive work. It is more of a collective thing that we do as a team, so I would not say it is only the defence but the whole team.”
