Pitso comments on Tyson chase


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has made a significant admission regarding transfer talk involving Bafana Bafana defender Thulani Hlatshwayo.

As first reported by KickOff.com, Hlatshwayo is understood to have been snapped up by Orlando Pirates following Bidvest Wits' status sale earlier this year.

Initially Sundowns had also expressed interest in the services of the 30-year-old centre-back, but his heart is believed to have always been with The Buccaneers.

Amid The Brazilians' treble celebrations on Monday, Mosimane further added credence to this website's report on Tyson's future as he conceded that the player is not at Chloorkop.

"I don't know if Thulani Hlatshwayo is a Mamelodi Sundowns player. You know, in life anything is possible, and you know me for long, I don't know," said Mosimane.

"As far as I'm concerned, as we speak now, no [Hlatshwayo has not signed for Sundowns]. All I know from rumours and what, is that Tyson is at Pirates. Unless you guys know something else. For me, as the coach, he's not at Sundowns."
