The Masandawana attacker is set to make his long awaited come back after the current Fifa break

Mamelodi Sundowns could have attacker Sibusiso Vilakazi back after the Fifa international break.

According to local media reports, the Brazilians attacker is already training with the first team and he could be available for selection as the reigning Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions look to retain their trophy.

“He has recovered and he is training with the rest of the squad. It is possible that Vilakazi could be included in the upcoming games after the Fifa break because they will have so many games,” a source said to Isolezwe.

The South Africa international is currently focusing on making his comeback after sustaining an injury on national duty back in October as they were preparing to face Seychelles in the 2019 Caf African Cup of Nations qualifier.

Although the Soweto-born player was ruled out for the rest of the season, ‘Vila’ has worked hard behind the scenes and he could be back just before the end of the current term.

“He is happy because he has just returned to training and his wish is to be included in the Afcon squad if Bafana Bafana successfully qualifies for the tournament,” concluded the source.

In addition, Sundowns are looking to challenge for the Caf Champions League title having been pitted against Egypt's Al Ahly in the quarter-finals.

The Brazilians are placed at the top of the PSL log table with 43 points from 23 matches.
