Kapinga To Downs – A Good Thing For His Career

Sought-after midfielder Lesedi Kapinga has been advised by his former coach, Luc Eymael, regarding the next move in his career. 

Following Pitso Mosimane’s recent confirmation that Mamelodi Sundowns have already signed three players in anticipation of the 2020/21 season, indications are that Kapinga is one of them, with Siya sources indicating that the Black Leopards midfielder has agreed to a three-year deal in principle with the Chloorkop club.

During his spell as the coach of Lidoda Duvha, Eymael had been vocal in praising Kapinga, with the Belgian mentor even referring to the 24-year-old as his own son. 

Speaking to the Siya crew about the latest developments, Eymael said, “About Kapinga, it’s a very good thing for him and his career if he has signed for Sundowns, but for me I think what will happen at Sundowns is that they will loan him somewhere.

"For me it would have been better for him to grow for one year somewhere else. If Sundowns loan him somewhere else in South Africa, it can be a good thing.

"If it’s true that he has signed for Sundowns, I will ask Pitso to loan him to us if I stay at Yanga (Eymael's current club from Tanzania) because that will be a good thing for him. One year of good competition, and to play regularly, rather than to go and compete with the stars at Sundowns because the midfield there is very strong.”

The former Polokwane City and Free State Stars coach added, “Look at what happened with (Sammy) Seabi and other players. They loaned Nyiko Mobbie also to Stellenbosch. That was a good thing because Nyiko will continue to grow. I think they will loan him (Kapinga) also, but I don’t know, I’m not in the head of Pitso. Perhaps, they will also loan Seabi. Let’s see what will happen!”
