Rheece Evans baffled by Mamelodi Sundowns thinking

Posted: 12 September 2016 Time: 08:18

Rheece Evans is baffled as to why he wasn't allowed to leave Mamelodi Sundowns when he faces little prospect of first-team football at Chloorkop.

Evans narrowly mised out on joining Cape Town City on loan in the recent transfer window as the clubs failed to agree on terms.

The former Maritzburg United defender has been registered for Downs' CAF Champions League campaign, but played in the MultiChoice Diski challege clash with Orlando Pirates in Umlazi on Sunday.

"Obviously I want to leave. I don't want to be here and play in the MDC and I feel I have been demoted," Evans told reporters after facing Bucs in the Reserve League.

"It feels like it's a slap in the face to be playing in the MDC. I was playing good football at Maritzburg United and I was expecting to play.

"At least I was expecting to be on loan or at least get my clearance from Sundowns... I don't understand why they can't play me.

"If they don't use me I don't understand why they can't let me go on loan. So I'm very disappointed at the club that they couldn't manage to help me find a team or at least get my clearance."

Evans is contracted to the Brazilians until the end of the season, having barely featured for the team since joining them in June 2014 from Maritzburg.
