Mosimane explains Moriri and Nyandoro’s role at Mamelodi Sundowns

The two senior players have seen little game time under Pitso Mosimane with Hlompho Kekana and Teko Modise the preferred choices

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has told the club website that the club is in the building phase after signing more than 12 new players this year.

Mosimane said he has signed players who can bring success at Sundowns for the next five years, but it is not clear whether his mandate for the season is to challenge for the league title or not.

“We have signed a lot of young players, mostly under 24. We are building a team for the next five years. The strategy is to buy for the long term, and you can’t do that by signing players who are about to retire, but it is important that you mix youth with experience, and so players like Katlego Mashego and Alje Schut provide a lot of experience,” said Mosimane.

Mosimane also explained the logic behind keeping senior players like Surprise Moriri and Esrom Nyandoro despite using them sparingly since he took over.  

“The role of players like Surprise Moriri and Esrom Nyandoro is critical. They are the last to have won cups, and they can tell those stories of achievement. We need this experience and the good stories that these players bring,” he added.
