When Orlando Pirates agreed to transfer Donald ‘Ace’ Khuse to Mamelodi Sundowns, they received five players in return, among them two strikers that would go on to be crowd favourites at the Buccaneers: Albert ‘Bashin’ Mahlangu and Basil ‘Kaapse Dans’ Steenkamp.

That was the measure of Khuse’s value to Sundowns, who back then were an ambitious club rising in the ranks of the NSL. He joined the Brazilians midway through the 1986 season, and became a member of a star-studded midfield that helped deliver the 1988 League title, the first of many for the club.
