• Good players are expensive – Mosimane

    Pitso Mosimane, coach of Mamelodi Sundowns

    Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed his plan to further bolster his squad ahead of the 2019-20 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season.

    The Brazilians have already acquired the services of Uruguayan striker Mauricio Affonso and Tanzanian striker Habib Kyombo.

    However, Mosimane insists that he would like to bring in players who can compete with the quality of Themba Zwane, Gaston Sirino and Lebogang Maboe.

    ‘I hear you guys wanted new signings and we disappointed you, even last year,’ Mosimane told the media.

    ‘The challenge is we need to sign players better than what we have, players that will give something different to what we have. We need a player that will take Themba Zwane out, a player to take Gaston Sirino out, a player to take Lebo [Maboe] out.

    ‘Lebo was a top player last season. [Anthony] Laffor is coming back from injury. If you sign a player, he must be a player better than that. If you don’t do it, then you duplicate.

    ‘It’s very difficult to find those players. When you want a player better than that, it means it’s going to cost you a lot of money. Good players are expensive. By the way, a player better than Sirino is in LaLiga.’

    Mamelodi Sundowns will begin their Absa Premiership against cross-town rivals SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on 3 August, with kick-off set for 3pm.
