Sundowns Leading The Race For Matlaba? 

With Thabo Matlaba having been linked with an exit from Orlando Pirates, Soccer Laduma sources have indicated that Mamelodi Sundowns are leading the race for the player’s signature.

Expect denials all round, but the Siya crew has it on good authority that Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs are some of the clubs showing interest in the left back.

The Tembisa-born player has attracted interest from overseas, although the source stated that Downs have shown serious intent on bringing the player on board.

“Thabo Matlaba has attracted interest from clubs including some from overseas. There is interest from Germany, Holland, Turkey and Israel. Sundowns are also interested in the player, and (Kaizer) Chiefs, with Sundowns looking to table an attractive offer,” said the source.

Matlaba’s agent Abbie Rasimphi, of Liberate Resources Sport Management, confirmed to the Siya crew that the talented player is in high demand.

“That is true. I have referred all the teams to Pirates. The player is still contracted to Pirates for another season and his contract runs until 2015. 

No one from Sundowns has spoken to us, but I won’t be surprised if they are interested because all the teams are looking for good players. Matlaba is special talent that any team would like to have,” said Rasimphi.
