Rulani hails 'incredible' new Sundowns star


Gaston Sirino scored one while Petter Shalulile helped himself to a brace and Abubeker Nasir put the final nail on the coffin with a spectacular solo run before dismantling the Chiefs defence and firing home a fourth goal of the match, and his first for his new club.

"[He has] Incredible potential, surrounded by other incredible players," Mokwena said.

"He comes into a good team and with the potential that he possesses he could raise our profile, especially offensively, into something else."

Mokwena revealed that the club found Nassir a tutor to help improve his English and has also brought in a translator to help with relaying instructions during training sessions. Yet for all his praise, Mokwena insists the best is yet to come for the 22-year-old and has called for patience.

"Again, I still ask for patience," Mokwena added.

"Let's be calm, let's not rush too much overhyping him become he’s still got some much work to do. The first part we had to get over is the language barrier and as soon as we get over that I think we’re going to see a lot more good performances from him."

Nasir may get his chance to shine once again when Sundowns take on Sekhukhune United on Saturday, while newly signed Bongani Zungu may also make his debut since returning to Masandawana.
