Abel Mabaso and Kwanda Mngonyama to Maritzburg United

Posted: 1 July 2014 Time: 12:08

Maritzburg United are expected to wrap up the loan moves of Abel Mabaso and Kwanda Mngonyama from Mamelodi Sundowns in the next 24 hours. 

The defensive duo has been in talks with Maritzburg after Rheece Evans and Mario Booysen moved in the opposite direction on permanent deals, and club chairman Farouk Kadodia says that an agreement with both players has been reached.

“We are waiting for the players’ agents to finalise matters with Sundowns, but in principle the players have been signed,” Kadodia tells

The news on Sundowns striker Rodney Ramagalela was less promising. Initially made available for a potential loan move to the Team of Choice, Ramagalela could now be kept on by Sundowns, with Kadodia saying that he expects to know more over the course of the week.

“It seems that Pitso [Mosimane] needs a bit more time to make up his mind, and if he decides that he wants to keep the player then we will have to look elsewhere,” said Kadodia.

The acquisitions of Mabaso and Mngonyama would slightly ease concerns at Harry Gwala Stadium amidst a player exodus that has brought about a defensive crisis ahead of the new campaign.

But with strikers Mohammed Yakubu and Orlando Smeekes no longer United players, there are also concerns over who will do the business at the other end of the park.

Kadodia yesterday poured cold water on rumours that he was in the market to bring Namibian winger/striker Rudolf Bester back to Maritzburg.

“At this stage I have not entered into any discussions with Bester and it is all speculation,” he said

Of all the 53 players loaned out last season, how many are deemed "improved" to be part of doms first team this season?

After 9 new players already this season what is the chance that the loaned players will ever come back and be part of first team?

Just sell them outright!!

The thing is, the PSL only consists of 3 teams being Bucs,Chiefs and Downs. I say this as Downs ensures that the other 13 teams get players loaned to them in order to help try stopping the other 2 teams (Bucs and Chiefs) whom they cant loan players to, as they are well established on and off the field.

I would have preferred mngonyama to booysen but pitso is the coach and most of all he has got a league medal to prove his worth so ill support what he has done.

This is typical throwing bath water with the baby; only happens with LoanDowns. I sense that the Greek business mentality of the Tschiclas still obtains at & sell, loan & sell and more.

Okay....although i would have preferred mabaso and kwanda over the 2 ex-maritzburg players.

Wish them all the best at maritzburg.
