Pitso: He Won’t Play Much

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has made a disclaimer about the signing of midfielder Sammy Seabi. 

The lanky former Polokwane City player arrived at Chloorkop last week, becoming the club’s third new recruit following the acquisition of right back Nyiko Mobbie and striker Mauricio Affonso so far in the transfer window.

But Mosimane has told the media that Seabi will not be a regular – revealing he signed him specifically to offer Downs some aerial advantage in the CAF Champions League.

“I don’t want him to do too many things. I want him to get the ball and pass here, get the ball give it to Vila (Sibusiso Vilakazi) or to Mshishi (Themba Zwane). That’s all,” the Sundowns coach told journalists.

“And on set-pieces he can help me because he’s got the height and he scores goals with his head. I told him that he might not play much, not a lot of games. We brought him for a specific reason. There are games that he is not going to play.”

The expectation, then, is that Seabi would have been registered for the Champions League, before the August 31 deadline. However, Mosimane revealed yesterday that Downs signed him too late and will look to register him for the group stages - should they reach that phase.
