Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has broken the ice concerning George Lebese’s struggles at the club.

Lebese who left Kaizer Chiefs last year for lack of game time is yet to break into Sundowns team after a year.

The left footed player is reportedly willing to leave the club on loan in January when the transfer window opens.

Lebes’s weight had been the barrier to game time and the coach has revealed it all.

Mosimane told SAFM: “George was struggling with weight. The weight that he had was not ideal and he had to lose six to eight (kilograms) because of the high tempo we play with at Sundowns.

“He lost and he tried (to get into the team), but there’s a queue. There’s (Gaston) Sirino who is playing on the left, because Vila (Sibusiso Vilakazi) was playing as a number 10. Now with Vila injured, we’re playing Sirino as a 10 and he is scoring, so it’s not easy.

“Phakamani is also not in the starting line-up guys, let’s be honest. There’s a lot of good football players (at Sundowns) and they all fight for their positions.”
