Mamelodi Sundowns gaffer Pitso "Jingles" Mosimane has justified the season's signings as the club's focus towards the future as he aims to rejuvenate his aging squad. Despite the loss of key forwards Percy Tau to the English Premiership side Brighton Hove Albion and Khama Billiart to rivals Kaizer Chiefs, Jingles is far more keen to further strengthen at the back than his forward line. The Brazilians coach has roped in several junior players who will train with the team as he aims to prepare them for the future.

The club has signed midfielder Tony Silva, Venezuelan forward Jose Ali Meza, Lyle Lakay from Cape Town City, Andile Jali, Tristan Moses, Katlego Otladisa, Musa Lebusa, Shungu Dutiro and the club is still heavily linked with former Cape Town City Captain Lebohang Manyama. The signings come at a time the coach says he does not want a bloated squad but he needs to prepare for the future.
Briefly.co.za has also learnt that the coach is keen to add another left footed centre back. The returning Sphelele Mkhulise will also be available to fight for first team opportunities. It remains to be seen how the coach will balance his squad and blend in the new signings with the old guard who have served the team well. The depth of the team will come into sharp focus when Sundowns clash with perennial rivals Kaizer Chiefs over the weekend at Loftus Versveld stadium.
