Pitso Discusses Transfer Window Plans

Pitso Mosimane has said that Mamelodi Sundowns do not plan to sign “too many players” next season, but are likely to allow several to go.

The coach, who at the weekend helped the Brazilians clinch a record ninth Premier League title, suggested this was because the club has already looked to the future with some of the arrivals from the season that has just ended.

Lebo Maboe (24), Rivaldo Coetzee (22) and Phakamani Mahlambi (21) are among the young players he was referring to.

“We signed five this season because we lost Percy Tau and Khama Billiat and we were not sure of how our attack was going to look like, but next season Sundowns will never sign too many players,” he told the media.

Mosimane explained why Downs have to release some of the fringe players that could not fight to be regulars.

“To be honest, we have to offload. We overloaded because we thought we would go longer in the CAF Champions League, the MTN8 and the Telkom Knockout, but were knocked out first. And the Nedbank Cup backfired. So we ended up, basically, with unhappy players,” the coach said.

“It is a fact. It is the truth. They are unhappy that they did not get time and that they deserve game-time. And I agree, but you know how it is – you can’t have your cake and eat it. At Sundowns, when you sign a good contract you must also know that there’s a possibility that somebody can be better in your position and that means you won’t have enough of a chance to play.”
