Mamelodi Sundowns Strikers Attract PSL Interest, Future Uncertain
Mamelodi Sundowns are set to make a decision on the future of two of their strikers with sources indicating that the duo has attracted PSL interest.
As previously reported on Soccer Laduma, Cuthbert Malajila and Mogakolodi Ngele have returned to the Chloorkop-based club following their loan stints with Bidvest Wits.
Sundowns recently indicated that the duo was not part of Head Coach Gavin Hunt’s plans for the new 2017/18 season which subsequently saw the two players return to the Brazilians.
However, indications are that Masandawana is set to make a decision on both Ngele and Malajila in the coming weeks as all five of the club’s foreign quota spots are currently filled.
Sundowns have Brazilian Ricardo Nascimento, Colombian Leonardo Castro, Algerian Fares Hachi and Ivorians, Soumahoro Bangaly and Yannick Zakri in their five foreign quota spots.
However, both Ngele and Malajila have been in Mzansi for five years, which means that the duo could possibly apply for South African citizenship which if granted, will see the players registered as local players.
Siya sources have indicated that there is currently PSL interest in both Malajila and Ngele, however, the Chloorkop-based club's technical team is set to make a decision on the duo when the team returns to club duty in two weeks time.
Now, it remains to be seen whether interested suitors will approach Sundowns for either of the players' services in the coming weeks, or whether Head Coach Pitso Mosimane will look to add the players to his plans for the new 2017/18 season.
