In an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma this week. Cape Town City chairman, John Comitis admitted that there’s been no communication with Mamelodi Sundowns regarding their star player.
In January this year, the Siya crew reported that City turned down multiple offers from Sundowns for the services of Kermit Erasmus, with the Brazilians eager to bring him on board at the Chloorkop-based club.
City maintained that the player was not for sale, though the Siya crew revealed in May this year that, according to sources, the Citizens would be open to offers for Erasmus come the end of the season.
However, speaking in an exclusive interview in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, City’s chairman, Comitis explained why he will not be willing to communicate with Sundowns regarding Erasmus.
“I have never had any communication with Sundowns regarding Kermit for now or end of the season, so that’s just probably the media reporting that. But we haven’t had any communication with Sundowns at all and, to be honest, we would not be willing to do so. At this stage, Kermit forms a key part of our plans for the next season. We have had him 50 percent this season because of the injury and I think this could be a big season (2020/21) for him,” Comitis said.
