Lebusa looks to solidify his place in Bafana squad

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Left-footed centre-backs are rare to find and having a player like Musa Lebusa at Bafana Bafana is very exciting at this stage of the modern game.

Lebusa has been one of the consistent features in Pitso Mosimane’s  Mamelodi Sundowns team, that has established itself as one of the top clubs on the African continent.

Lebusa joined Sundowns at the beginning of last season and his good performances have resulted in Bafana’s newly-appointed head coach Molefi Ntseki calling him into the team for this weekend’s Nelson Mandela Challenge match against Mali in Port Elizabeth.

Lebusa comes into a Bafana defense that’s dominated by the centre-back partnership of Bidvest Wits’ captain Thulani Hlatshwayo and his teammate Buhle Mkhwanazi.
