Mamelodi Sundowns have been critised in the past for not giving their youngsters a chance to play in the DStv Premiership. As they have a great bunch of starlets in their DStv Diski Challenge squad and some players just need to be slowly introduced to the senior team. This is something that the Downs fans expect in stead of constantly buying new players when they can develop their own stars too. It's just a matter of finding a balance between the two at Chloorkop. When Masandawana played to a 3-2 victory against Royal AM in their last game in the 2021/22 season, there was player that won the supporters hearts.
Ofentse Mashiane made his first appearance in the senior team, as he came in for the defender Khuliso Mudau in the 72nd minute. He was able to work hard in the midfield, even though it wasn't easy, but he showed a glimpse of brilliance that has been wanted by the Sundowns supporters. Even though they felt that he needs some time with the senior team and the technical team have to take him through some dynamics of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) as they felt that he struggled with the tempo of the game.
The 21-year-old was captured having a heart-to-heart conversation with the Sundowns senior Steve Komphela. As he was trying to share some knowledge and consolidate him when it comes to his nerve breaking performance against Royal AM. The Young Pogba as he's famously known in the team got a chance to play the Brazilians last league game due to the flu outbreak within the squad. "Sheeeem! They suffocated The Young Pogba. He was thrown in the deep end to swim and he came through. His opportunity came at the back of others’ setbacks(flu outbreak). Blessings and burdens are cousins. 'Ha a re wa e tshwara, ba hodimo hae' 😂👏🏼😂," wrote Komphela on his Twitter account.
