Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi has give update on the progress of George Maluleka.
The former Amakhosi midfielder has not seen much game time since joining Downs last season.
The player has not made any appearances for the Brazilians this season.
However Maluleka could get a chance to play in the near future after Mngqithi has revealed that the player is doing well at training.
Speaking on a media conference on Sunday Mngqithi said the club has players that have not played and Maluleka is one those players who are doing exceptionally well.
The coach said the player has lost so much weight and looks sharp.
"We are eager to give him an opportunity at some point," he said.
Mngqithi added that they must try and see what they can do without tempering with the winning team.
With so much competition in the team it has not been easy for Maluleka to break into the club's starting lineup.
Sundowns will be back in action tomorrow when they host Golden Arrows at Lucas Moripe Stadium for the second leg of MTN8 semifinals after the first leg ended as 1-1 draw.
