Motsepe says a lot of good work has been done at Chloorkop in terms of acquiring the intended players for the next campaign.

"Yugesh [Singh] has done excellently, so has Kenneth [Makhanya], so has Sizwe [Ndimande] and the rest of the technical team," Motsepe said during a media briefing on Thursday.

"All of the players who are part of our plans for the future, we feel comfortable the good work has been done. Part of the challenge is that two of the players we are chasing are not in South Africa."
