Mamelodi Sundowns Are Keen To Sell Striker Katlego Mphela

Posted by admin on Thursday, 3 February 2011

Disclosing this in a press statement today, Brazilians communications manager Alex Shakoane said Motsepe was at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, but on his return this week he went to Chloorkop to present the monthly players' awards.

Shakoane said that Sundowns will engage their 'recognised and respected structures at branch, regional and national level' to discuss the problems and ensure that the ‘success and interests of the club are protected and promoted'.

"The position of Mamelodi Sundowns concerning Katlego Mphela is the same view that we expressed after the Confederations Cup in 2009, namely that Katlego Mphela is free to join any overseas club of his choice and Sundowns will negotiate in good faith with any club that submits a reasonable and fair offer.

"Mphela told the club that he did not want to go to Europe and asked for a re-negotiation of his contract and a huge increase in his salary, which was granted to him by the club.

"Despite this new contract which Sundowns has with Katlego, the club is still keen to release him because the policy of Sundowns is to release a player who wants to go."

Shakoane's statement adds that Sundowns have had problems in the past with Mphela's agent, Glyn Binkin, "because of the lies and false statements he makes in the media and which we do not want to dignify with a response".
