Pitso Confirms Chloorkop Departures

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed that there will be departures at Chloorkop following the recent spending spree.

There will be at least 10 new arrivals at Downs next season, with George Maluleka and Lesedi Kapinga already at the club.

Mosimane, fresh from completing a treble with his current crop of players at the weekend, told journalists that he has given management a list of those he considers surplus to requirements as he builds a new-look team.   

He, however, would not disclose who would be leaving.

“I have given a list to the club on players we think should be offloaded. We have acquired about 50 percent, and I don’t know if this is the right word, of the players we wanted. I have to wait for the team to announce them,” the coach, speaking an event hosted by sponsors Hyundai to parade their trophies, explained.

“And we have to offload players. You must understand that we are bringing the younger ones to support the senior players – sometimes it gives the perception that we are only taking out the old players. It’s not like that.”

Mosimane argued the old guard remain the core of the team.  

“We need (Hlompho) Kekana, we need Denis (Onyango), these are senior players and they drive the team, it doesn’t mean now we say ‘oh, how old are you, 31 or 32, 33, out!”. We don’t do that, but maybe if you at that age and you haven’t contributed, then yes,” he said.
