Coach’s Corner: Pitso On Transfers – What He Is Really Saying

We could see a Mamelodi Sundowns that exercises restraint in the upcoming transfer window – if we take coach Pitso Mosimane’s recent comments about the recruitment of players only at face value.

Speaking to journalists following his side’s Absa Premiership triumph at the weekend, Mosimane confirmed the Brazilians would bolster their squad for next season, but by adding “one or two” new faces.

That’s hard to believe. Sundowns have never limited their shopping spree to just two players, not now and probably not ever.

But Mosimane runs the show at Chloorkop, that much we know. And perhaps he feels the club has enough depth to just improve one or two departments.

Downs signed six players at the start of the 2018/19 season in Reyaad Pieterse, Mosa Lebusa, Andile Jali, Lebo Maboe and Phakamani Mahlambi, with striker Emiliano Tade arriving in January.

Given that Mosimane has also told the media that the club will also have to let go of some of the “unhappy” players, logic suggest the coach would need to fill the void left by those departures. The Brazilians will again try to conquer the CAF Champions League, while also attempting to retain their Premier League title.

For that reason, it is difficult to see them only buying a maximum of two players – but that is what Mosimane has said. We will just have to wait and see, won’t we?
