Sundowns Striker Linked To Chippa

Mamelodi Sundowns Striker Linked To Chippa United

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 05, 2018 10:03 AM

The Siya crew has been informed by a source close to the Mamelodi Sundowns camp that one of the Brazilians' strikers could be making the move to Chippa United during the current transfer window. 

As reported in previous weeks by the crew, Sundowns are looking to bolster their attacking department as they head into the second half of the 2017/18 campaign, with Masandawana close to concluding a deal for two South American players.

Sundowns currently have one available foreign quota spot on their books following Leonardo Castro’s departure from the club, however, Siya sources have informed Soccer Laduma that Masandawana are looking to free up more space on their foreign quota.

According to sources, Ivorian Yannick Zakri is currently being linked with a move to Tebogo Moloi’s Chippa side, adding that the 26-year-old’s name has been mentioned as a possible new addition to the Chilli Boys in the current January transfer window. 

Zakri could be seen as a replacement for Moeketsi Sekola, who has since seen his loan spell cut short with Chippa as he made his return to Highlands Park.

Zakri joined Masandawana during the July/August transfer window in 2016 and despite not being the first choice striker for the Brazilians, the Ivorian has been a regular in Head Coach Pitso Mosimane’s squad.

Now, it remains to be seen whether Chippa will look to finalise a deal for Zakri in the coming weeks.

It will be unfair for the player to be released at the club. Without giving the player more game time like other players. This situation might happen to other players in future. Like Vilakazi, Lebese, Mohumi, etc. The coach needs to give each of them a fair treatment. Like he did wise with Tau, Zwane, and the others. I believe each player at the club have immense contribution to put to the club.

@Torres5638 Sundowns decided not to register Ricardo Nascimento at the bigining of the season due to his injury and brought Briham Razak in his place which means we had Six ( Ricardo, Briham, Leo, Fares, Soumahoro and Zakri). Remember we also had Mokgakolodi and Malatjila who came back from loan who were registered late due to permanent residence that was delayed. So that means Sundowns started the season with eight foreigner. Ngele n Malatjila were registered later after they got their citizenship n Ricardo after Leo left to Chiefs.

Zackri is a good player he don't deserve to play for chippa, is rather for him to move to north Africa, those teams from Tunisia, morocco and Algeria they fear him.

Zackri's doing well with the team. He just need game time. To proof himself that he's a great quality striker! Pitso just needs to be patient with the player. Give him more game time as he did with other players. Like Tau and so forth sure he will come out magnificent!

@Mashia1950 no it can't be a loan move it must be permanent as the rule for foreign players says even if a player is loaned to another team his foreign spot is still occupied at the parent club one of the reasons sundowns had to terminate mahachi's contract in order to free up some foreign spot

Its a loan move, which I think its brilliant decision to create a space for two foreigners with out loosing them. So they will have two unregistered foreigners ( Zakri and Ricardo)
