Pitso: Have We Killed Careers at Sundowns?

Pitso Mosimane, coach of the newly crowned Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns, has dismissed the long held view that while the club does enjoy incredible success, very often some players see their careers stall at Chloorkop.

During the season that has just ended, Jeremy Brockie, Ali Meza, Oupa Manyisa, Andile Jali and George Lebese – to name just five – have become fringe players even though much was expected of them when they were initially brought in.

Mosimane conceded that it was indeed tough to impress at Downs, but the club turns players into “millionaires” rather than kill their careers.

“Young players must not be afraid to come to Sundowns, because people always say at Sundowns we kill careers. Okay, if we have killed careers where’s Percy Tau, where’s Khama Billiat? Where’s Bongani Zungu and Keagan Dolly? We turned them into millionaires,” the coach told the media.

Mosimane has confirmed, however, that the club will be offloading a few players that have grown disgruntled because they couldn’t break into the team.

“We don’t sell a myth here at Sundowns. When you come here you must know you are coming to win trophies and have a big contract. People slam us in newspapers that they are not getting game-time, but they probably were getting game (at their previous clubs) time but earning less,” the coach said.
