There has been endless speculation about who Mamelodi Sundowns will sign for next season, after adding 13 players last winter. Some of the most lively rumours connect Downs with Thabo Matlaba, Oupa Manyisa and Siyabonga Sangweni of Orlando Pirates.
However, Downs have shot down these rumours, and I'm glad to hear it.
"The media reports about a Pirates player coming to Sundowns, and a Sundowns player going to Pirates is mere speculation,” Sundowns stated on their website.
We don't need to become the Orlando Pirates of Tshwane next season. We were so successful last season with our own boys, and we will be next season as well.
Let the Pirates struggle next season with their own players. We don't want them.
