Mkhulise needs to take notes from senior players – Lakay
Whenever Lyle Lakay looks at youngsters in Mamelodi Sundowns like Keletso Makgalwa, Promise Mkhuma, Sphelele Mkhulise, he remembers the days when he just started his career and was the youngest player at SuperSport United in 2009
Lakay said he learnt greatly from the senior players surrounding him, which included retired players like Thabo September and Ricardo Katza with some of his current teammates in Sundowns, which includes captain Hlompho Kekana.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic winger said it is only by learning from the veterans can Mkhulise and the likes develop into household names in the premium division.
“I have played with Tebogo Lenagerman, Denis Onyango, Hlompho and Anthony Laffor at SuperSport and for me as youngster back then, it was all about learning from the senior players, doing whatever they were doing to succeed because it is evident with what they have achieved,” said Lakay.
“When I speak to the youngsters at Sundowns, I tell them that I was the youngest in the SuperSport team when I got to the senior team. There was Daine Klate, Katza, David Kannemeyer, Siyabonga Nkosi and all other experienced players. I just told myself that I have to learn from them because at the end of the day they won’t advise you to do wrong things, they will advise you to do the right things” he added.
“In order for them to succeed, they need to do what they have been doing. If you look at the way they performed in the bio-bubble, they helped the team a lot and I think it is evident that Sundowns have a bright future with the youngsters and hopefully we can continue with the success,” Lakay concluded.
