News reaching the footballing world is that Mamelodi Sundowns have decided to exercise their option on Mzikayise Mashaba; he is now set to stay with the club until at least June 2017, and will be free to sign a pre-contract with another team in January if negotiations with Sundowns do not go as planned.
It seems that most supporters would welcome Mashaba at their clubs with open arms. His talent is widely recognised. It takes a lot for supporters of one club to recognise another's player as brilliant, but such is the case with Mashaba, and many are calling for their negotiators to try to snap up "Muzi".
"Bobby, this is where you have to intervene. While busy exercising options, grab this boy by his hand and Khosify him. This boy is a good player, I like him, I have been monitoring him for a while." – honestkhosi
"I like this boy, and wanted him to play for Pirates. He is good, I don't know why he is not playing national team." – 07375218181
"You have a very educated left foot, Masha." – mtho4downs
What the future holds for Muzi remains to be seen. Perhaps a move is on the cards for him to ensure regular starting time, or even, if his talent is developed enough, South Africa could very well be exporting another talent overseas in 2017.
Who do you think Mashaba could replace at your club?
