Mosimane Opens Up About Player Transfers

Mosimane Opens Up About Player Transfers

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 19, 2017 10:20 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was very open about his transfer plans for the January transfer window, and he also commented on the future of Khama Billiat.

Sundowns' seven-match unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership was halted after they suffered a 1-0 loss to Cape Town City on Tuesday night.

The Brazilians coach highlighted that he wants star player Khama Billiat to stay at the club ahead of the CAF Champions League tournament next year.

“We will lose two or three players (going into the new year) and we will bring in three or four,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

“You have to understand this for us, as well as in the middle of the season, January is the preparation for the Champions League in February, so we will bring in three or four.

“We need three or four quality players to take the product up. We kept a few guys because of the Championship League and we knew in December we would have to shed them. We are uncertain with others like Khama (Billiat) who is the only one we are uncertain with, but the rest of the guys will stay. (Tiyani) Mabunda will stay.  Themba Zwane has renewed the contract. They don’t want to go. How can you leave this (pointing to the fans)? Where are you going to go? If you go overseas that’s okay but in South Africa, where are you going to go?

“It’s the story of (Mesut) Ozil, it’s the story of (Alexis) Sanchez and we are open about it. We want him (Khama Billiat) to stay. We want him to renew, but it is all up to him. He is not playing that well here. How many games has he played? Four/Five? Hopefully he stays, we would love him to stay but if he decides to go, then he has the power. When your contract is like that, then you have the power. We had to release Leo (Leonardo Castro who is going to Kaizer Chiefs).”

Touching on his side’s first loss in seven games after their defeat to Cape Town City, Mosimane admits his side need a rest.

“We played a well-rested team. They were fresher, quicker and faster than us. We aren’t making excuses but we played five games in 13 days. We didn’t have the legs. We were not fresh. There has been too many games,” added Mosimane.

“But we can absorb this one. We need a rest.

“Let’s give them (Cape Town City) credit. They sat in. It’s the only way that they could win, was to sit in and come out on the break. Even the goal they scored they came off the break.”

@dellah Its stupid of the coach to comment about sitting back when he has quality team that he knows they can break that wall, in fact the coach was outsmarted by the young Benni. Whoever finds scapegoat on Fans in football is stupid and dilusional

Teams are aware that you desperate to win every game so you will attack with everyone and leave one or two defenders which is the weakness that they exploiting ,if I get three points through a transitional goal so what? Accept the defeat and stop making dull excuses by the way you're excuse is the oldest in the book find a new one

Packing the bus or sit in is when a team defend with every one on their half and when they clear the ball it finds the opponents only ,but if you sit defend and also able to come out with the ball from you're half to the opponents final third that's not packing the bus it's a tactical awareness others call it tactical discipline or transitional play if you want.

Funny how this coach always after the loss, every game when you could not score it always gonna be the same same excuse "They sat in. It’s the only way that they could win, was to sit in and come out on the break. Even the goal they scored they came off the break.” Coach admit you got it and move on stop being a cry baby
