Mamelodi Sundowns defender Musa Lebusa has played down talks of becoming the club’s next captain.
Lebusa, who joined Sundowns from Ajax Cape Town at the start of the 2018/19 season, has been tipped to succeed Hlompho Kekana in future. This was first mentioned by coach, Pitso Mosimane.
“Look, I think everyone is entitled to their opinion, I don’t dwell much into that you know it’s just his opinion [Mosimane backing Lebusa for the captaincy].
“I respect that but for me I feel like KK [Kekana] is my captain and will remain my captain until he leaves Sundowns,” said the former Ajax Cape Town skipper.
Lebusa initially struggled to nailed down a starting berth at Chloorkop until he got his chance and grabbed it with both hands and he’s been a key player for Sundowns this season playing all the games in the Absa Premiership to highlight his importance to the team.
Lebusa’s solid performances at the back for Sundowns has seen him getting a Bafana Bafana call up.
Meanwhile, with Kaizer Chiefs running away with the League having made a fast start to the season, Lebusa believes there’s no better team suited to chase Amakhosi than Sundowns.
“Look everything is possible. It’s a marathon it doesn’t end now or in 2 months time so there’s still a long way to go, we can, if anyone can come back from such a big points difference it’s only us… so we looking forward to that challenge,” concluded Lebusa.
