Mnguni: Sundowns don't get it wrong


Mamelodi Sundowns legend Themba Mguni has defended the club's transfer policy of signing players that are seemingly more than they need.

Masandwana have already signed Grant Margeman, Jody February and George Maluleka for the 2020/21 season.

Brazilians legend Mnguni believe it is too soon to talk about Pitso Mosimane's latest acquisitions but is confident there is a plan in place for those coming in.

"I cannot say much about those two for now because the season hasn't ended yet, it's very tough to think about how they will make an impact in the team," Mnguni tells

"We will know once Sundowns make an announcement on which players are being released, then some spaces will be created for them."

Several players have signed for Sundowns in the past only to make up the numbers in a squad always bulging with talent, with George Lebese the most high-profile recent example.

Aubrey Ngoma and Oupa Manyisa are other big names who are currently sitting on the sidelines more than on the team sheet.

But Mnguni believes there are roles to play for anybody who signs for Sundowns, especially in the CAF Champions League.

"One thing I know, Sundowns doesn't make wrong signings," Mnguni insists.

"George Maluleka and Grant Margeman are brought in for a reason. They will give the team balance, especially in Africa.

"Sundowns are a very ambitious team. They must stay focusing on continental football and those two players are going to help them."
