Do Sundowns Players Deserve Their Wages

It is understandable why people compare our club to English Premier League giants Manchester City. In the South African football context Sundowns is one of three clubs (arguably the strongest of the three) that has augmented spending and earning power hence some of the biggest earners of our league play for the Brazilians.

Now I have never had a problem with players earning big bucks. I mean big talent deserves big money and besides the lifestyle of a football isn’t exactly modest. The problem however is what happens when players earn huge wages when they don’t in fact deserve to. We need to remember that with a big payslip comes big expectations and you have to be a player for the big stage....in other words everything about you and your ability as a footballer needs to be big!!!

Sadly this is not the case with the our beloved club Mamelodi Sundowns. If we are honest with ourselves we will admit there are players in the team who have not lived up to expectations or have dropped the ball somewhat.

Which players in our team do you feel are overpaid but under performing?
