Mamelodi Sundowns owner Patrice Motsepe could be making changes to the club's administration with rumours linking Platinum Stars managing director Floyd Mbele to Chloorkop.
This comes soon after Motsepe fired coach Johan Neeskens after Sundowns lost 1-0 against Bloemfontein Celtic in the Telkom Knockout Cup Final on Saturday.
The Brazilians are also second from bottom on the Premiership log.
The club's fans have also been very vocal in demanding that Motsepe fire both Trott Moloto and Kenneth Makhanya, who they blame for the poor performances.
Now news reaching KickOff.com is that Motsepe is targeting Mbele to bring more expertise and experience to the club in a bid to avoid relegation.
The former Orlando Pirates official is credited with turning around the fortunes of Platinum Stars this season and is now being touted as the man to help new Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane achieve success at Chloorkop.
But Mbele was coy on the rumours, telling KickOff.com: "This is not the first time I hear such news. I don’t know anything and I have not been approached by Sundowns."
