Moroka Swallows soccer maestro Lefa Tsutsulupa is the best thing to happen to the midfield of South African football.

But it is a mystery that the selectors of the senior national team have always omitted him from the Bafana Bafana squad.

The midfield ace will be in the Birds line-up against Black Leopards in an Absa Premiership game at Germiston Stadium on Sunday.

Most Birds followers are optimistic that the game will be another platform for Tsutsulupa to showcase his talent.

The side's general manager, Sipho Xulu, believes Tsutsulupa is among the best midfielders in the country.

"He is one of the most outstanding players and very experienced too. Lately he'd become the engine room of the team," said Xulu.

Leopards' communications director Tshifhiwa "Chief" Thidiela, said they were aware that Swallows were still in high spirits after celebrating the team's 60th year of existence.

"Age-wise they are big enough to be our fathers or grand fathers, but age will not be a determining factor in the field of play."
