Mamelodi Sundowns

AK-47 Defends Downs' Transfer Policy

Former PSL striker Sandile Ndlovu has defended Mamelodi Sundowns' transfer policy.

Masandawana have been criticized for creating the trend of acquiring any player the club eyes up in every transfer window. The club has been accused of destroying talent by signing players in every position, despite having enough options.

Ndlovu feels his former club understands competition and are clear about conquering Africa as was Patrice Motsepe's wish when he took over the club.

"All I can say, football is business now. I think they are still following Dr Patrice Motsepe's plan when he took over during our time. He was clear that he wants Sundowns to conquer Africa, and to do so, you need to sign top players every transfer window," Ndlovu told the Siya crew.  

"He always says he wants to have top players in the league. People shouldn't blame Sundowns, they must stop putting loyalty first. That doesn't pay bills or win trophies." 

AK-47 has challenged other club owners to value players. 

"Sundowns just want to dominate. They spend money to be competitive, teams must stop being stingy and pay players what they deserve.  

"So this thing of saying Sundowns is killing careers must come to an end because these players end up becoming African champions, dominating the league for years, plus gets serious money while others still want to use loyality to keep players with trophies. 

"Sundowns mean business and they want to conquer the continent and some teams still pay proffesional players R10 000 and expect to compete while Sundowns gives them over R20 000, players can't stay if they not respected in other teams hence they choose Sundowns over loyalty."

However Ndlovu admits his former club still need to work on how to manage players by releasing those they no longer need.

"The only challenge at Sundowns, is keeping players they no longer need, while buying, they must release those no longer in need."
