No joy for Mphela yet

Katlego Mphela still waiting on Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 10 February 2011 Time: 4:20 pm

Despite President Patrice Motsepe's warning over the weekend that the Awol striker has no future at Chloorkop, Katlego Mphela is still waiting to hear whether his demands for a written guarantee that he will be sold at the end of the season have been met.  

"I'm still waiting for them to deal with the issue," he tells KickOff.com, before adding. "But can you talk to my agent because I don't want to really say anything."   The 26-year-old was dropped by Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane for Wednesday's friendly with Kenya after failing to turn up to training with his club for the past two-and-a-half weeks.    His agent Glyn Binkin admitted there has been no progress this week, despite Motsepe's comments at the weekend that he is willing to allow his prized asset to leave.

_quote   "The President has said he wants him to leave but that doesn't make sense," he says.   "There are transfer windows that are still open such as in Russia so we are working on possible deals. There are several clubs that are interested but Sundowns are still saying one thing and doing another. The ball is in their court."   But in response to those claims, Sundowns Communications Director Alex Shakoane issued a withering reply.   "The ball is in our court when we have been trying to get hold of the boy – what does that mean? We're still trying to contact him to find out what is happening and his agent knows that. He knows where Sundowns is so if he wants to bring him here then he can," says Shakoane.   In the meantime, Binkin revealed Mphela has been keeping fit thanks to a personal trainer as last year's PSL top goalscorer looks to regain his spot in the national team ahead of next month's clash with Egypt.      "He's probably training harder than he ever does at Sundowns," Binkin admits.   "I don't know whether he is slipping down the pecking order (for Bafana). But we have to get this situation sorted out first and hopefully he will be available for selection for the next match."

"He's probably training harder than he ever does at Sundowns," Binkin admits. This Glyn Binking uyadelela. Anyway my advise Mr Mphela go back to Sundowns and plead your case to the President by staying away from Training for so long won't help you Bro. I'm sick and tired of these so called Soccer Agents; because of their Business they are interfering with the Business of the Clubs, the Clubs are running Business as well as much as these Agents. As Soccer fans we mustn't be fooled by these Agents, these guys just want percentage from the Selling prices and the Salary of the players. On the contrary Sundowns are well withing their rights for refusing to sell if they are not ready to sell; Glyn Binking is an arrogant %&%%&$%%$

Am sowi to say this, but this Glyn Bling-King is just full of shit, firstly he wants to run the clubs affairs, and now he is saying players are probably training harder than they ever do at their respective clubs.

Someone with balls need to take this motherfucker head on, otherwise all managed by him will forever go AWOL for no apparent reasons.

Agreed King99. Nou die last dis moegoe was on Marawa's Radio show and he tried to ridicule Alex. I'm not a fan on Downs but really guys, we as Soccer fans need to condenm dis in serious stronegst terms. Yes Players muist go and ply their trades overseas or something but they must go through right channels. B4 we used to complains that teams are underpaying the players, now these these players are earning megabucks(more than sum of SA Top companies CEO's) but yet they not respecting their teams, contracts, dis is bull*****t. I can't pay you 300k per month and u don't respect me. Mphela uyahlanya, Glyn Binkin msu****n*** wakhe.

It's rather puzzling that the same player who turned down offers from russia now wants to play in russia, why the sudden change of heart? i don't think that this glen is acting in the best interest of the player- to him he's trying to prove a point to sundowns at the expense of mphela. however i do not feel sorry for mphela, his arrogance and lack of respect will not get him very far.
This has become a case of a player moving anyway as long as it's overseas at the end of the day the agent will get his cut.
I really do wish that sundowns never works with this guy ever again, he's a typical boer who thinks he can push people around.
If sundowns was my club, i'd let mphela be as he is- it's a long way to 2015 without a pay cheque. motsepe should consider "no work no pay" approach, starve his uneducated black a.s.s to the club.

Whats wrong with us .We don't seem to have a crop of lethal fowards. Every time we get a good one the other one disappear. In 1996 we had plenty of good strikers, Williams,Masinga,Bartlet,Sikhosana and many more. Coach used to choose whom he wanted. Then we got McCarthy he dropped out after we had Nomvethe.

At least Nomvethe Bartlet and Zuma did the job for a while.
Since then there has been no prolific striker till Mphela came in.
Now we have got promising Somma but now Mphela is out. Thats bad.

And this thing of attacking with one striker won't take us any where.

Alex you guys dnt have to look for maphela unless you chased him away. Wena Binkin you are a racist who is hellbent on milking black players. You are just an opportunist who thinks a successful black man like Patrice is stupid. Sundowns owes u nothing racist. I am sure Maphela wont mind not playing up until the end of the season since he's probably currently training better than he does at his club. Wena Mphela watch out as this might be the beginning of your end of your career. Mobilise other players to help you much to chloorkop to force management to agree in writing that they'll release you at the end of the season. Power of school ntate. This nyaope you smoke isnt good for your health. Sundowns must prove a point that u are nt the best thing to happen in this team
