Never ever, ever move from one club to another carrying an injury! This is a warning former Kaizer Chiefs left back Punch Masenamela should have heeded before making his move to big spenders Mamelodi Sundowns.
Football experts around the world can testify that 9 out of 10 times when a player switches clubs carrying an injury it normally ends disastrously, and that is the case with Masenamela who is either spending his days recovering from injury or languishing on the bench.
Masenamela came into prominence under Vladimir Vermezović as a blistering marauding full back providing Kaizer Chiefs with much needed width and a solution to the left back crisis Chiefs had been enduring. Upon his arrival at Sundowns he displayed glimpses of his qualities but was hindered by niggling injuries he had been carrying.
No here at Sundowns Masenamela, has unfortunately not provided the punch we were so looking forward to. With his contract ending in June will he remain at Sundowns or seek to revive his career elsewhere?
