Sundowns Eye Long-Term Replacement For Arendse?

Mamelodi Sundowns Are Looking At Revisiting Their Interest In Brian Onyango

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 29, 2018 04:07 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns are looking at rekindling their interest in one of Maritzburg United’s centre-backs following Rivaldo Coetzee’s long injury layoff. 

It was reported in last year’s July/August transfer window that the Brazilians were keen on securing the services of the Team Of Choice’s Brian Onyango, as they were on the lookout to find Wayne Arendse’s long-term replacement.

Arendse will be turning 34-years-old this year, indicating that he may not have the same pace left in his legs as the years passed by. 

Rivaldo Coetzee was believed to be signed as a long-term replacement for the ageing Arendse, although after 10 months of being on the club's books, Coetzee is yet to make an official appearance for Sundowns as he is still busy with rehabilitation. 

However, according to sources in the know, Masandawana are looking at revisiting their interest in the 23-year-old centre-back, with indications that should they act on their interest, they could approach Maritzburg for an offer in the upcoming July/August transfer window.

Sundowns have made three new signings ahead of the new season so far, with indications that the club is not yet done bolstering their squad.

It remains to be seen who the Brazilians will be adding to their books in the coming days.

Lebese opens up about being a bench-warmer at Sundowns Mamelodi Sundowns winger George Lebese is hoping to get more regular game time at the club next season. Lebese says coach Pitso Mosimane has explained why he didn’t feature regularly last season. “It was disappointing not to play as much as I would have liked this past season,” Lebese told media at the launch of the Shell Helix Ultra Cup. “But the difference is management by the coach. It’s easier to deal with since the coach explained to me why I am not featured. For now I just need to get into the team and play.” “The first season was a learning curve for me at Sundowns. I didn’t get as many game time as I would have loved to, but I accepted. When I was told to lose weight it came as a surprise because I thought that I was fit enough to play. I was told to lose two to three kilos. I had to cut down on the food and train four times a day.” Eya Kwini uLebese?

No we don't need Onyango at Sundowns. We must rekindle our interest in Ayabulela Konqobe and give Kaketso Majadibodu a chance in the First team

Onyango is one of the top defenders in the PSL but truth be told he's not sundowns material and to make things even worse he's a foreigner with the kind of no of foreigners in our team perhaps Xulu would be the ideal signing and he knows sundowns and the culture of the so settling in won't be that much of hustle for him, because if you look at our defense Gxabhashe is perfect to work with Nascimento ,Arendse,Madisha and Rivaldo Coetzee

“We have signed the player. He was a free agent and doesn’t belong to any club,” said Motaung.
