Pitso Singles Out 4 Signings That Didn’t Work

Ali Meza, Jeremy Brockie, Aubrey Ngoma and Toni Silva haven’t closed the gap left void by Khama Billiat and Percy Tau.

That’s the view of Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane, who – not for the first time – bemoaned the departure of his two match winners following moves to Kaizer Chiefs and Brighton & Hove Albion, respectively.

In his reaction to Sundowns being knocked out of the CAF Champions League by Wydad Casablanca in the semi-finals at the weekend, Mosimane suggested that the Brazilians could very well go on another shopping spree given that the players signed to replace Billiat and Tau did not deliver.

Silva left Sundowns in January, while the other three barely feature in the team and will be looking for new homes during the upcoming transfer window.

“Some of the signings did not work. It needs to be a little different upfront in terms of scoring goals,” Mosimane told the media.

“We tried to reinforce. We tried after we lost Khama and Percy, our top strikers. We signed Ali Meza, Toni Silva, Brockie, Aubrey Ngoma and them…to try and maybe close the gap. But the reality is that the gap was not closed. That’s the truth. And when you lose those two strikers, it’s a bit difficult to maintain. We are a team in construction, and I will say that whether we win or lose.”
