Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Mosa Lebusa admits it will be a difficult task to succeed influential captain Hlompho Kekana at the club.

35-year-old Kekana is in the last year of his contract at Chloorkop and is set to sign a new three-year deal at the club.

However, the Bafana Bafana midfielder is set to make less appearances for the club as he heads into the twilight of his career, meaning deputy captain Lebusa will have to take on more and more leadership responsibilities.

But Lebusa admits the captaincy succession debate is something he does not want to focus on at the moment and believes that it would be difficult for anyone to emulate the success Kekana has achieved as captain at the Brazilians.

"I don't want to think about that now," Lebusa told KickOff when asked about his ambitions of being captain.

"KK is a good captain. I don't want to put myself under that kind of pressure.

"Sundowns is a very big brand. To lead them now, I don't see that now. Maybe in the near future but not now."
