Many South African legends and PSL stars are taking notice of the talent that is Tiyani Mabunda, who has impressed for the Brazilians in the Caf Champions League.

Former Amakhosi and Mamelodi Sundowns defender Fabian McCarthy is one of those admirers and Mabunda has returned the favour.

“For a person like Fabian McCarthy to say what he said about me is very overwhelming, because he has been there and done that. He has won almost everything in football,” Mabunda told

“As a player, I will just keep doing what I have been doing and God is in control of my life. He is my direction. If God’s will for me this season is to do this and that, then it will be done,” Mabunda said.

“I believe the talent that I have, I have to show it right now. I have tried on my own on many occasions but I never got anywhere.”

Mabunda has played a vital role as Sundowns beat Enyimba, ES Setif and Zamalek in the group stage of the CAFCL.

“But God has elevated me to a place where I am blessed to be recognized by people like Fabian McCarthy. It’s really a blessing and I thank God that he placed me in a position where I did not expect to be this time of the season,” Mabunda concluded.
