Walters On Ngoma Saga: We Will Always Fall Victim To The Bigger Clubs

In response to the ongoing saga that involves Mamelodi Sundowns’ allegedly illegal approach for Cape Town City’s Aubrey Ngoma and Lebogang Manyama, City goalkeeper, Shuaib Walters, has said that bigger clubs will always target players from less established teams, but that it’s ultimately up to the players to decide on their own futures.

Comitis Issues Statement On Mosimane Offering Ngoma A Large Sum Of Money To Join Sundowns

City boss, John Comitis, recently hit out at Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, after the CAF Champions League winning coach allegedly contacted the players directly, rather than through the correct channels via the Cape Town City management and Walters has said that the club is clear in its intention to keep this season’s standout players at the club.

“Obviously, he (Ngoma) has played a major role at the club and I think the club has made it quite clear that they want to hold onto the players by extending their contracts,” he told Soccer Laduma. “I know that both Ngoma and Manyama signed new contracts in January, which means the club has made it clear, but it also can be from a market-related side where you could get more for the player.”

Tinkler Reveals His Choice For Player Of The Season

Walters went on to explain the dynamic between the so-called bigger clubs and smaller clubs but said that, as long as Sundowns approach any potential transfers in the right manner, the decision will rest with the players themselves.

“For a club of our stature, we will always fall victim to the bigger clubs, because we will always have one or two players that will shine consistently and the bigger clubs will always want those players,” he added. “At the end of the day, the player himself needs to decide what he’s going to do, because, like the club is a business, he’s also a business and he needs to look after his business. If Sundowns do take the wrong route (in their approach), then that would be wrong of them to do that.

“If they go through the proper process, and go the right way, then I feel that the player would know what’s best for him, financially and in terms of playing.”
