- Sibusiso Vilakazi has been in good form since the start of the season notching two goals in three starts
Vila has put everything down to helping the team to win games and not his own individual exploits
Sundowns have had a fairly decent start to the season and will be looking to keep the momentum going as they participate in the African Safari
Sundowns forward Sibusiso "Vila" Vilakazi has been unassuming about his great start to the season for his team insisting that it does not matter who plays but its all for the team. Vila has been in top form scoring crucial goals both in the league and CAF Champions league. The 28 year old forward has fitted well into coach Pitso Mosimane's scope of plans of playing as a "false nine" weighing in with important finishes for his team.
The pressure for Vila has grown with the departure of the team's two architects in Percy Tau and Khama Billiart and he has had to shoulder the responsibility as the most senior forward. The new signings have slotted in well and given a promising showing but Vila has seized the initiative and looked to play for the team and contribute his lot. Briefly.co.za learned that the coach has rotated his squad on occasions to give a run in to the other players and on occasions Vila has played he has come up with the goods. The rich vein of form that the forward is experiencing will be important if Sundowns is to get anything from the cauldron of the Stade Mohammed V in Morocco in the Champions League.
