Transfer Request Loading? Downs Striker Wants Out!

José Ali Meza could be the latest Mamelodi Sundowns player who could force an exit from the club due to his lack of game-time. 

The Siya crew has been informed by two independent sources that the Venezuelan striker, who joined the Brazilians at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, has become disillusioned with his spell at Chloorkop.

He’s only managed just four starting appearances for Sundowns in all competitions and is understood to be unhappy and looking for a way out.   

Meza had a good record on his arrival in South Africa from Oriente Petrolero in Bolivia where he had scored eight goals in 12 matches for his former club – much was expected from the forward.

But the 27-year-old has been kicking his heels in the stands as he watches Sundowns attempt to retain their Absa Premiership title as well as competing on the continent in the CAF Champions League.

An insider suggested to the crew that there have also been talks of Meza contemplating a return to his native country at the end of the season. Recently, his Sundowns teammate Anthony Laffor urged Sundowns supporters to be patient with the striker, who is yet to score a goal in the domestic league.

The club parted ways with another forward, Toni Silva, in January, the former Liverpool and Chelsea academy player moving to Egypt’s Al Ittihad and then launching a scathing attack on Downs coach Pitso Mosimane for how he was treated during his short spell at Chloorkop.
