Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lionel Mutizwa believes the club should look within to find a replacement for Keagan Dolly.

Mutizwa added that he did not believe Sundowns' slump in form was due to Dolly's departure, but rather the number of games they have played over the course of the season.

Golden Arrows' Nduduzo Sibiya has been strongly linked with the Brazilians, having impressed Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane during the season.

But, Mutizwa thinks it would be a tall order to expect Sibiya to fill the massive void left when Dolly moved to Ligue 1 side Montpellier. 

"Sundowns have enough quality; they have all the players that they need. I think it's just that the team has played a lot of games this season, that's all," the former Zimbabwe international was quoted by Soccer Laduma website.

"I saw in their last few games that they are coming back. It might not be the Sundowns that was dominating , but I think that, without Dolly, they’re trying their best and the coach is doing his best to get the most out of them," he said.
