Louis Saha to PSL?

Sunderland striker Louis Saha to South African PSL?

Posted: 16 January 2013 Time: 1:23 pm

France international Louis Saha is looking to leave English Premier League side Sunderland, with South Africa a possible destination.

The 34-year-old signed for Sunderland on a one-year contract in August, but has not made a League start yet and is said to be unhappy at the club.

The Black Cats have agreed to cancel the remainder of Saha’s contract, with the Sunderland Echo suggesting that “a South African club” is interested in his signature.

Saha was reportedly earning £40,000 a week (R560,000) – which works out to R2.24-million a month. In the September issue of KICK OFF we revealed that a handful of top-earning PSL players – at Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs – are on salaries of R5-million a year, making a move to one 'big three' the only feasible option for Saha, with a significant pay-cut.

HAVE YOUR SAY HERE: Where do you think Saha could fit in the PSL?

Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill told the Sunderland Echo: “As of today, we have told Louis is free to speak to other clubs and to leave if he can fix himself up somewhere.

“We have come to an agreement whereby we will cancel the remainder of his contract, shake hands and go our separate ways.

“That said, we are still a bit short in terms of numbers and Louis may stay with us until the end of the month until such time as – hopefully – we have strengthened the squad a little more.

“But we agreed that he could go as early as today, if he wishes to.

“I have heard that there is some interest in South Africa for Louis and it might be of some interest to him.”

Our striker current strikers are leading the PSL scoring chat half way into the season....why would we buy Saha and pay him over R450 000 per month?.....That would not make any business sense.We are not Orlando Pirates thina....we know how to run a football business...Saha would not even be good in marking the Kaizer Chiefs brand......
