Lebese Meets Downs To Discuss Future
George Lebese’s agent has confirmed that they have met with Mamelodi Sundowns to discuss his future, insisting that the club understand his frustrations.
The 29-year-old attacker joined the Brazilians last year in a big move from Kaizer Chiefs, however was unable to tie down a regular spot as he made just 10 Absa Premiership appearances throughout the course of the season.
Now, despite having completed a specific training programmed given to him by the club, Lebese has not make Pitso Mosimane’s matchday squad at all this season, and it seems that there is a possibility of an exit when the January transfer window opens up.
Steve Kapeluschnik, who is the player’s representative, says that it’s now a case of waiting to see what happens as Lebese continues to try and break into the side at Chloorkop.
Speaking in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, Kapeluschnik said, “George has worked really, really hard to try and get into the team at Sundowns since he got there. He was put on a special programme and went on to lose a lot of weight and got into the sort of shape they wanted to see.
“He has done whatever has been asked, and of course he’s frustrated that he’s not playing because he came to Sundowns to play. We’ve now met with the club and explained his frustrations, which they understand, and they seemed very sympathetic to those frustrations. Whether he goes or not we don’t know. Let’s wait and see what happens in the coming months.”
