Mamelodi Sundowns winger George Lebese is confident that the club will be able to cope without the star duo of Khama Billiat and Percy Tau.

The former Brazilians stars joined Kaizer Chiefs and Brighton & Hove Albion respectively before the start of the 2018-19 season, having formed an integral part of Sundowns success over the past few season.

Lebese, though, is confident that head coach Pitso Mosimane boasts enough quality to fill the void left by the departed duo at Chloorkop.

“Taking nothing away from the players who left … they are quality, but I think we have enough in the team," Lebese is quoted as saying by KickOff.com. "We really can’t complain, so we have to try win every game that we play.”

Lebese has struggled for game time since his move to Sundowns from Chiefs last year and has yet to feature for the club this season.

The Brazilians beat Golden Arrows over the weekend to book their place in the MTN8 final four and will face Cape Town City for a place in the final.
