Mamelodi Sundowns only team to bid for Asavela Mbekile

Posted: 10 June 2014 Time: 12:44

Tim Sukazi insists Mamelodi Sundowns were the only team to make an official offer for Asavela Mbekile.

The tough-tackling midfielder joined the Brazilians on a four-year deal yesterday.

Some suggested that Sundowns beat Pirates to the punch, but Sukazi says there were no official bids from the Buccaneers.

“I have heard the rumours about Orlando Pirates having an interest in Mbekile,” he tells

“I am not too certain as to how true or untrue those rumours are, but be that as it may, we could only deal with the club that formally engaged us and that club was Mamelodi Sundowns.”

Sukazi adds: “I am happy for Sundowns as I believe they have signed a very good player. This is one player who will surprise many football pundits.”

Lol I am not surprised... Sukazi is still hurt

I heard it from the player, he said Pirates are interested and he'll be going there... I just think the signing of Issa Sarr threw a spanner in the works too, apart from the heartbroken agent

Tim Sukazi, just accept it man. You are determined to not give Pirates any of your players after that Majoro issue. So you knew about it, and you chose Sundowns over them.

my Pirates wuld never want this payer. we have made a good signing in Sarr. Mbekile is my home boy but i dont like him. he is another version of Katsande. we dont need players who end other players' careers intentionally.

Take your Mbekile and all players in your staple and shove them where the sun dreads to shine.... Pirates will still be Pirates irrespective...

Motsepe is heavyweight and Khoza is a lightweight.....I am talking money here.

Remember what happened to Khama Billiat?..The Pirates chairman dug deep to bring the player to Mayfair and Motsepe used his credit card...
