Pitso Explains ‘Strategic’ Seabi Signing

Pitso Mosimane has explained that the signing of midfielder Sammy Seabi from Polokwane City last week is a “strategic” one.

The Mamelodi Sundowns coach added a third player to his squad for the 2019/20 roster following the arrival of striker Mauricio Affonso and right back Nyiko Mobbie, who will be loaned out to a yet unnamed team in the PSL.

“With Sammy it is a strategic signing. More relevant for the (CAF) Champions League – you saw how we struggled with set-pieces against SuperSport United when they had big boys in the box,” Mosimane told journalists.

“So how do you defend six of those type of players if you haven’t got the players with the body? It counts. That is why we also signed Mauricio. In the Champions League when you go to Wydad and Al Ahly, they push my small boys aside. They can’t hold on. So this is why we signed Sammy Seabi.”

The 24-year-old is 1.76m tall and will be beneficial for Downs in their CAF campaign.
