It is looking increasingly likely that starlet Katlego Otladisa may not have a future at Mamelodi Sundowns!
Siya sources have informed the crew that the 22-year-old, who was sent on loan to Cape Umoya United in January by the Brazilians, faces an uncertain future with his parent club having already been told he is not in their plans for next season.
Otladisa managed an impressive 13 matches and two goals for United in the National First Division and had hoped that would have been enough to catch the eye of coach Pitso Mosimane, who has admired the winger since his topflight breakthrough with the now defunct Platinum Stars.
However, Siya sources have informed the crew that Sundowns are prioritising their most senior players for their squad and Otladisa is – for the moment – surplus to requirements. This is despite the player still having four more years remaining on his contract, though he has not been allowed to return to Chloorkop.
It is unclear if Downs will simply mutually terminate his long-term contract or loan him out yet again. But insiders have suggested Otladisa is already looking for a team as he prepares for life beyond Sundowns.
Otladisa is believed to be back in his hometown in the North West and keeping fit on his own following his return from the loan spell.
