Mamelodi Sundowns are currently on a training camp in Tanzania as they prepare for the resumption of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) season.

The Pretoria-based outfit, however, are missing two of their star players in forward Billiat and goalkeeper Onyango.

Both players were on duty with Zimbabwe and Uganda respectively at the African Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals.

Sundowns have confirmed that both players will not be joining the training camp in East Africa.

But they will reunite with the team when the reigning Caf Champions League winners return to South Africa.

The Chloorkop club have also stated that it will be Mosimane’s decision for when the duo will return to action.

“The coach will decide when he wants them back in the line-up‚ we are not rushing them and we are not desperate to get them going again‚” Sundowns communications manager Thulani Thuswa told Times Media Digital.

“When they come back we will assess them‚ check their fitness and the coach will decide what he wants to do," he added.

"But we are not going to push things‚ we are not desperate."

Sundowns are set to take on Tanzanian clubs Simba and Young Africans in Dar es Salaam before returning to South Africa.
