Downs' Quiet Transfer Window A Good Thing?

Unusually, Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns have had a rather quite January transfer window with more players exiting the club than players arriving at Chloorkop. Yes, that may come as strange to the  many who expected Sundowns to go into the transfer window and make a host of signings once again.

However, is this step in the right direction for the Brazilians with regards to their signing policy?

It could be, as not too long ago, Downs boss Patrice Motsepe said that the club would begin to revise their signing policy and make better use of his endless financial flexibility. That’s not to say Downs would spend less, as they still strive to have the best players in the country on their side, and that will come at a cost.

The sheer amount of players at the club may have forced the technical staff to re-think any possible transfer going forward, as adding more players to an already packed Downs dressing room would surely affect the unity of the squad.

Also, being less prolific in the transfer window would do well with the Downs' bank statements come the end of the month. Cutting down the wage bill was one of the reasons why Motsepe decided that enough is enough, and that more strategic signings need to be made.

Having said that, do you think it’s a step in the right direction by not making as many signings as they have before?
