Mamelodi Sundowns

Agent Comments On Laffor’s Downs Future

The agent of Anthony Laffor has set the record straight on the veteran attacker’s future at Mamelodi Sundowns.

One of the longest serving players at the club, having moved to Chloorkop in 2012, speculation has been rife that the Liberian international is among the list of expected departures at Sundowns with the technical team set to trim the squad.

It’s been reported that his next destination could be newly-promoted side Swallows FC, who have already announced Sammy Seabi on a loan deal from Downs.

Laffor, 35, has struggled with injuries over the last two seasons and the only bit of action he got in the previous campaign was one minute against Highlands Park.

But his contribution in the eight years at Chloorkop has been immense – with seven league trophies and a CAF Champions League evidence to this.

With as many as 13 new players arriving at Sundowns, co-coaches Manqoba Mnqgithi and Rulani Mokwena have already confirmed that a few will have to make way.

“I have seen reports linking Laffor with a move away from the club, but I can confirm that we have not had any contact from anyone regarding his services,” the players’ agent, Steven Kapelushnick, told the Siya crew.  

“The final decision, of course, rests with the technical team. If they feel a move away from the club is what is best for the player, then we will sit down and have a discussion. But for now there has been no talks about Laffor leaving.”
