Pitso looking at Sumaila and Mathias

Mamelodi Sundowns are assessing Ghana youth international Rashid Sumaila and Togolese wingback Emmanuel Mathias

Mamelodi Sundowns are assessing Ghana youth international defender Rashid Sumaila and Togolese wingback Emmanuel Mathias with a view of signing them up for next season.

The duo could replace Ghana pair of Mumuni Abubakar and Emmanuel Baffour who are to be offloaded by the club anytime soon.

Though Sundowns have Sumaila and Mathias on trial at the club the reality is that The Brazilians can only register foreign players next season as they have already exhausted their foreign quota of five players for this season in Alje Schut, Abubakar, Baffour, Nyasha Mushekwi and Method Mwanjali.

Even if a club decides to offload foreign players during the season the Premier League will not permit new registrations to be made during the course of the season if they have already exhausted their foreign quota like Sundowns.

Abubakar and Baffour have so far proven to be flop signings with both yet to make any contribution at the club since their arrival in July.

However, Sundowns who are keen on reinforcements at the back have brought in Sumaila and Mathias for a close look in by Pitso Mosimane.

Sumaila currently plays for Asante Kotoko where he is on loan from Ebusua Dwarfs and has already been capped at Under-20 and 23 levels for Ghana.

The 20 year-old was part of the Black Stars provisional squad for the Afcon finals but was dropped when the squad was trimmed down to 23 players but he remains highly-rated in the Ghana Premier League.

Mathias (26) is a Togolese right-back born in Nigeria but is now a naturalised Togolese.

Mathias was part of the Togo squad at the 2006 Afcon finals in Egypt and currently plays for Nigerian club Heartland but has previously played for clubs in Tunisia and Israeli.

Meanwhile, Ugandan goalkeeper Dennis Onyango is recovering well from the fever that prevented him from travelling with the rest of his teammates for the week-long tour of Zimbabwe.

Onyango pulled out of Sundowns training camp in Polokwane due to the fever and is now back home in Johannesburg recovering.

@ mamizela, and pierats afetr signing those foreigners loans them to Vodacom league or pays their contracts up (Boa Morte, Talatou, makonese, phenyo mongala,msowoya, otorogu and on and on) Pierats are sooo smart in your books; this just goes to show your limited cognitive thinking.

A good striker knows a goal post.
A good team knows good players so I dnt see any need of wasting time doing trials for a good player. Chisanyama had 0ne month trials with pierats and what did he brought to the team? He brought nthng except his role model's celebration style to pirats.
Chiefs never had trials for Musona and what did he bought to chiefs? He brought 3-1 and 3-0 consecutive victories and 2 telkom knockout trophies within a year and lastly musona ended up being a leading goal scorer after having enough game-time.

I'm still shocked that u are happy that pierats had trials for CHitiyo mxm. At naturena we normally don't do trials coz we a smart eenough to see a good player with one look.

Good move 'Jingles' one swallow doesn't make it summer: they have to given a chance, I don't think the environment and the timing enabled them to express themselves to their full potential: I like your strategies and your thinking ways...
