The club’s head of academy Shawn Bishops confirms that the 13 time league champions will be promoting four new youngsters into the first team next season.
Bishop, who is reported to be leaving the club, reported that the senior team technical staff is behind this.
The club’s head coach, Rhulani Mokwena, and his technical team have identified four youngsters who will be part of the senior team season.
“They are already planning for next season, we have another four academy players on stand-by, who will be joining the senior team for pre-season,” said Bishop to Sunday World.
“I am not at liberty to reveal who they are, but I must say that it’s exciting times at the club and we will definitely see them in the pre-season camp.”
Meanwhile, youngsters in the senior team like Cassius Mailula, Jerome Karelse, Ntando Nkosi, and Siyabonga Mabena will look to build from last season.
However, the size and quality of the Sundowns squad will be a challenge for them.
