Mosimane warns his transfer targets


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has issued some advice to his transfer targets to seize opportunities when good offers come their way.

Sundowns are always known to be aggressive in the transfer market but lost out on signing both Aubrey Modiba and Kermit Erasmus last season after they turned down offers.

The Brazilians only managed to sign midfielder Sammy Seabi from the domestic market.

Mosimane has since revealed that he will enter the transfer market again during the off-season to add more personnel to his playing squad.

Erasmus is reportedly still on his wanted-list despite losing him to Cape Town City last season.

"Kermit is always a good football player, but these things are about timing you know, sometimes timing is important," Mosimane said in a recent video conference.

"Sometimes you wanted this player at that time and the player decided that he doesn't want to come to you. He is not ready to come to you at this time and you move on to find somebody like him or better.

"It's always about timing in transfers. Sometimes when you need this player and he is available, you sign, good. Sometimes you need this player and he is not available, then next year you don't need him or next year you need him more.

"Football is a game of moments. Sometimes you might be needed but six months down the line, you might not be needed and you have lost your chance."

Mosimane also missed out on signing former Kaizer Chiefs striker Knowledge Musona back in January after he joined Eupen on loan from Anderlecht.

The Brazilians have already signed Jody February, Grant Margeman and George Maluleka in preparation for next season.
