Lubhalwe nguMichael Madyira

Inkulumompikiswano yokuthi ngubani umdlali ongumpetha njengamanje ebholeni lakuleli ingase igxile kakhulu uma i-Al Ahly neMamelodi Sundowns sebedudulana emdlalweni we-CAF Champions League ngoMgqibelo.

Lezi zinkunzi ze-continental heavyweight zizotholana phezulu enkundleni i-Al Salam e-Cairo emdlalweni ka-Group B.

ISundowns ifike e-Egypt noCassius Mailula ongundabamlonyeni ngemuva kokuthi lo mdlali (21) eshaye amagoli amathathu emidlalweni emibili yamaqoqo.

Lo mdlali kukhulunywa ngaye ku-Premier Soccer League njengoba esebonakale njengompetha olandelayo ebholeni lakuleli.

Nakuba engakadlali ezingeni lomhlaba, kodwa uMailula usefaniswa nesihlabani seBafana Bafana uPercy Tau.

Umqhudelwano wangoMgqibelo ungase ukhombise ukuzimisela kukaTau futhi ukhombise ukuthi usengumdlali omkhulu kuBafana kulandela ukulimala kwakamuva okuphazamise ukudlala kwakhe.

Ngezinsuku zakhe uTau ubephilisa kabi izimbangi zeqembu lakhe futhi angafisa ukuqhubeka engumdlali ohamba phambili wakuleli.

Owayengumdlali wasemuva weSundowns, uTebogo Langerman uvumile ukuthi umdlalo wangoMgqibelo umayelana nezihlabani ezimbili zakuleli uPercy & Cassius.”

Laba bobabili bangase babonakale begqama njengoba uMailula efuna ukuqhubeka nefomu yakhe enhle.

Kuzobe kungokwesithathu uTau egijimisana neSundowns kowe-Champions League ngemuva kokuba ingxenye yeqembu le-Al Ahly elidlale ekhaya nasekuhambeni ngesizini edlule.

Uhlulekile ukuzibophezela kulokho kushayisana neqembu lakhe lakudala ngesizini edlule.

Ngenxa yokulimala iSundowns izobe izama ukukhombisa ukuthi ukujula kwawo okucebile kungabonakala uma kuqhathaniswa neqembu eliphumelele kakhulu emiqhudelwaneni yamaqembu e-CAF.

“Ushintsho oluningi luholwa ukulimala eqenjini kubadlali abafana noThemba Zwane noPeter Shalulile,” kusho umqeqeshi weSundowns uRhulani Mokwena.

“Kugxilwe ekubhekeni imininingwane nasekulungiseleleni umdlalo ozayo.”

Ngokungabaza kukakaputeni weqembu uZwane nomgadli uShalulile, kungelinye ithuba lokuthi uMailula athwale umthwalo onzima ngendlela athwale ngayo iqembu e-Cameroon ngesonto eledlule.

Kodwa uTau uzofuna ukuzibonakalisa njengomdlali owake wadlala kahle ku-UEFA Champions League kungekudala.
