Bale whose real name is Malebogo Modise signed a five-year deal with the brazilians just after another young talent in Lesedi Kapinga signed a five-year deal with the club.

Bale is following the steps of the likes of Percy "Lion of Judah" Tau, Motjeka Madisha, Promise Nkhuma and Abram Ncobo whom were all promoted to Sundowns' senior team from the junior structures.

It won't be easy for the young Bale who is only 21 years of age to fight for the left-back position with Tebogo Langerman and Lyle Lakay.

However, he is a versatile player that can also play in the left-wing and centre-back positions.

"We brought in Malebogo Modise , or Bale as they call him. he plays as winger, left-back, left-wing. He is easy to convert from left-wing to left-back because he has quality and a very good left foot." says Mosimane.

Mosimane believes Bale has the quality and characteristics of his full-backs in Tebogo Langerman , Thapelo Morena and Lyle Lakay and he will fit in very well.

"Because the quality and characteristics of our full-backs at Sundowns is Tebogo Langerman, Thapelo Morena, Those are the characteristics, Lyle Lakay, you know, those Full-backs who overlap. So Bale fits in that space," Mosimane added.

Bale has been part of South Africa's under-17 at the world cup. He has also played for the Under-20 and Undr-23 at the world cup stage. With his honours it sounds about the right time for him to be brought to the senior team.
