The Brazilians boss said according to the Sowetan: “I spent a lot of time in the off-season speaking to him on the phone, trying to get to know him, getting people to tell me about him.

“Getting people who played with him to tell me what type of a player he is and as a human being. The feeling I got was that we could be very aggressive. There were other teams that even moved more aggressively than us to try to get him.

“But I think because we had developed a very good relationship, we were able to bring him this side and I think there is still a lot more to be seen.”

Mamelodi Sundowns are top of the standings

Mokwena added: “There is still a lot to come from Lesiba. He is the right player and he is at the right club with the right teammates and right brothers around him.”
