Sundowns applauded for their recent recruit that has won the hearts of their fans


Mamelodi Sundowns have shown in the past that they're able to sign highly-rated stars which are able to help the club reach greater heights. It's clear that the technical team are able to negotiate with the club management to bring in specialists on certain departments. The price tag isn't something that the Brazilians worry about as they have a massive cheque book that can afford to rope in a number of international heavyweights. This time around Sundowns have been applauded for recruiting the former Ethiopian Coffee attacker Abubeker Nassir who has hit the ground running at Chloorkop.

When Nassir was brought in the second half against Kaizer Chiefs this past weekend, he gave the Soweto giants defense something to worry about as he was constantly attacking. It was visible that Chiefs players struggled with keeping up with his pace and skills. As he was able to open his tally against Amakhosi and was the one who put the final nail on the coffin as they thrashed Arthur Zwane's side by 4-0 at Loftus Versfeld Stadium. Now, the outspoken football analyst Junior Khanye has shared his honest take on the Ethiopian youngster, as he felt that he's nothing but a star. Khanye felt that Masandawana have gotten their recent signing correct as he'll provide them with different options moving forward. “That guy is a star. When you sign players, you’ve got to recruit players who suit your style of play,” said Khanye speaking to Kick Off. 

According to reports, the 22-year-old star was bought by Downs during the January transfer window, but they decided to loan him back to his Ethiopian club. Khanye felt that he's going to have a great debut season at Chloorkop. “Immediately after watching him, I realised he was a star. His first touches, it doesn’t take long to see if a player knows football,” said Khanye speaking to the media.
