Players Facing An Uncertain Future At Downs

Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns have a huge selection of players at their disposal, with some of the top talent in the South African Premier Soccer League. Unfortunately many players at the club feel the wrath of having to make the grade at Downs,

In this article, we will look at a few Downs players who have not featured regularly and may not feature regularly going forward.

Wayne Arendse

The 30-year-old central defender has not played at all this season for the Brazilians, with names like Alje Schut, Thabo Nthethe and Mario Booysen being preferred ahead of him. Sundowns could lose Arendse on a free come the end of the season, when his contract expires, and this may not exactly be a bad thing for the player.

Rheece Evans

Although a versatile player, who could play at right-back and at centre-back, Evans has hardly featured for Downs this season after being signed from Maritzburg United at the beginning of the campaign. Many Downs fans would argue that this was a needless signing, and his lack of game time could back up those sentiments.

Katlego Mashego

The former Orlando Pirates star faces the task of having to compete with much younger strikers at the club, and could be forced to a bit part role. With the likes of Anthony Laffor and Cuthbert Malajila being in form, Mashego may not see much game time this season.

Lebohang Mokoena

Once adored by the Sea Robbers faithful, the skilful former Bucs star was an important member of Downs’ title wining campaign last season. However, due to a mixture of competition and injury, Cheeseboy may find it increasingly hard to once again establish himself at the club.

What other Downs players do you think could be facing an exit at Downs?
