Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena says they will soon enter into discussion with the club's loan manager to see what the future holds for a few individuals who have spent the season away from Chloorkop.
Sundowns have Siphesihle Mkhize, Phakamani Mahlambi, Sammy Seabi, Nicholus Lukhubeni, Sifiso Ngobeni, Luvuyo Phewa and Malebogo Modise out on loan this season.
Mkhize has been a standout player at Chippa, but would have tough competition in the middle of the park should he stay at Chloorkop next season. Same goes for Phewa, who has been outstanding in the GladAfrica Championship for promotion chasing University of Pretoria.
"The good thing is that we've established a position a role of a loan manager. We deemed it fit to be able to follow closely the performances of the players who are out on loan, primarily because we understand how important it is for players to go out on loan and want to behave well while they are on loan and not give problems from a social perspective. But to also respect the club that has allowed us to be able to park a football player and assist in their growth and development. And therefore the training has to be good and the performances have to be good and consistent," Mokwena told media at Chloorkop on Thursday.
"The process is to watch and we've seen the players while we have played our opponents and we do our analysis. You are able to see how well a player like Sifiso is doing at SuperSport, for example. Luvuyo Phewa has been exceptional. Before we played Royal AM, we watch the game between Royal AM and Tuks. Mkhize has been exceptional for Chippa. Musa is at Jomo Cosmos. There's a lot. The process now is to receive the report the loan manager and once we have that, we sit down with the sporting director, who is also extremely invested in the youth getting an opportunity in the first team."
