Platinum Stars duo Zulu and Otladisa will join Mamelodi Sundowns, confirms Roger De Sa

Dikwena's coach admits disappointment in losing two of his star players to the Tshwane giants

Platinum Stars have agreed to a deal that will see two of their players join Mamelodi Sundowns.

Masandawana have been hard at work bolstering their squad in the January transfer window as they look to maintain their place at the summit of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) table, already roping in long-term target Aubrey Ngoma and are believed to be closing in on striker Jeremy Brockie. But according to Dikwena coach Roger De Sa, they will now also be confirming the capture of Siyabonga Zulu and Katlego Otaladisa in the coming days.

However, De Sa further explains that Otladisa may be loaned back to Stars as he nurses himself back to full fit fitness after sustaining a broken leg.

“There are two players that will be sold on Monday, Zulu and Otladisa‚” De Sa told the media after his sides 3-1 loss to Ajax Cape Town.

“Otladisa has a broken leg and will only start playing again in about three months’ time‚ so he’s likely to stay with us another season. Zulu will join Sundowns‚ probably next week‚ and rightly so.

“He’s got five months to go (on his contract)‚ he’s given his everything and has been fantastic. So for his good service‚ we take our hats off‚ say all the best and hopefully he becomes successful‚ that’s the way it should be,” he explained.

“How do you stop players from bettering their lifestyles and furthering their careers? There’s a human side of the game you’ve got to keep‚ it’s only right,” he expressed.
