Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed what his plan is with regards to new signings in preparation for the new season.
Sundowns have only brought in Uruguayan striker Mauricio Affonso so far during the off-season, while their bid to sign Aubrey Modiba was turned down by SuperSport United.
Mosimane says he is only ready bring in players who will increase the quality he already has at Chloorkop.
"I hear you guys wanted new signings and we disappointed you, even last year," said Mosimane.
"The challenge is we need to sign players better than what we have, players that will give something different to what we have. We need a player that will take Themba Zwane out, a player to take Gaston Sirino out, a player to take Lebo [Maboe] out.
"Lebo was a top player last season. [Anthony] Laffor is coming back from injury. If you sign a player, he must be a player better than that. If you don't do it, then you duplicate.
"It's very difficult to find those players. When you want a player better than that, it means it's going to cost you a lot of money. Good players are expensive. By the way, a player better than Sirino is in LaLiga."
Sundowns are leaving the country for Botswana today to continue with their pre season campaign before flying off to DR Congo next week.
