Sundowns target Ramagalela

Posted: 30 January 2013 Time: 11:29 am

KickOff.com has learnt that Mamelodi Sundowns recently called Black Leopards chairman David Thidiela to enquire about striker Rodney Ramagalela, but the latter is staying put.

The 24-year-old has reportedly been on Orlando Pirates’ radar, but Bucs’ interest has since waned.

“At the time when the Pirates issue was revealed I think it was motivated by the fact that Ramagalela was going to be out of contract at the end of this season, but midway through the first round Ramagalela and Humphrey Khoza renewed their contracts,” a Leopards official reveals.

“Since then the Pirates issue went quiet. What I know is that Sundowns called the chairman to ask about Ramagalela, but even if he leaves it can’t be in this transfer window. The manager [Sam Khaphathe] saw a striker from Roses United, who he thought could be a good replacement but nothing happened there.

“So if we consider a deal for Ramagalela, it will have to be at the end of the season,” he adds.

Where will he play? To be fair this guy can't even make it at an ordinary team like Chiefs, so with the starsturden Downs where will he play.
Pitso should give chance to the likes abo Henyekane and Maqele who i think can settle and do better fpr them.

Chiefs supportes are the MOST stoopid everytime a team wants a player they go compalining where he will play,that he is not good,he will regret it

If Keegan Ritchie was at Pirates or Sundowns we would be charged for destroying him same as Nale,Ngcobo and many others
If a Player chooses another team they will hate that Player to death like they doing to Manqele
Players are bread winners they have families they just sign for anything beside Money
Its more rewarding to sit at the Sundowns bench than to play for Chiefs you will die a Pauper like Skappie,Junior Khanye,Muchichwa,Mokete Tsotetsi,Thsepo Bulu abd many others

As a Sundowns affiliate and Yellow-blooded supporter I am against this apparent interest in Ramagalela or any other striker. Sundowns is starting to emberass us as fans with their interest in every striker in the country. Henyeka, Mphela, Mushekwi, Manqele and Rodgers. What else do u want!
May sanity prevail @ Clhoorkop in 2013. Our team does not need ANY reinforcements!
Let's concentrated on tactical awareness and Mushekwi's apparent fear of scoring....

To the Chiefs fans: Leave Manqele out of ur comments. He chose Sundowns....Zvesiya chose Chiefs. Life goes on...

why we dont buy a goalkeeper and good defenders not what we see at Downs.I know our culture is not to buy defenders but sometimes we have to buy good defenders,our squad is full and must be trimmed to a level that we know our starting 11 not guessing who will be playing.

@Teko.....ur ryt my man. I hadn't even touched on the glut of players we have @ Tawana, in midfield etc.
In the goallkeeping department, we've got Sandilands, Onyango and a few young keepers coming up the ranks. In defence, perhaps someone in the mould of Xulu would do to fill the void left in this regard. Other than that, I believe it is time Sundowns starting focusing on effective tactics as opposed to signing a cheque every transfer period.

FOOL the reason Majoro signed for Chiefs its because they offered more money than Amazulu not because he wanted to wear your jersey
The reason Gould signed for Chiefs is because they offered him a good offer than what he was on at Supersport otherwise he would have stayed there
The Reason Mashamaite is at Chiefs its Money nothing else
