Maponyane For Sundowns Exit
News reaching the Siya crew is that Mamelodi Sundowns are willing to release Walter Maponyane to interested clubs.
It was recently revealed on the Soccer Laduma web and mobi-site that negotiations have been ongoing between Sundowns and Chippa United for Maponyane and for the Sundowns players that spent the 2013/14 season on loan at the Cape side.
The Brazilians had Maponyane, Siyabulela Shai, Seun Ledwaba, Thabo Makgothi and Doctor Mampuru on loan at the Chilli Boys this past season.
Maponyane’s agent, Jazzman Mahlakgane, told the Siya crew that the player’s departure will not be limited to Chippa only, but any other club that shows interest in his services.
“Maponyane will be released. At the moment it is still unclear who the club we will be doing a deal with will be. Chippa is very interested. The player has an option to choose where he wants to go. The club can only agree with whoever wants the player… it isn’t Chippa only,” said Mahlakgane.
Chippa boss, Siviwe Mpengesi, and the club’s CEO, Peter Koutroulis, have been in negotiations with Sundowns about players to join the Philippi-based outfit.
