Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has explained his decision to let Jeremy Brockie and George Lebese leave the club during the recent transfer window.
Lebese was released while New Zealand striker Brockie was loaned out to Maritzburg United for the 2019-20 season.
The Brazilians were also set to part ways with the likes of Aubrey Ngoma, Lucky Mohomi and Jose Ali Meza, but their services were retained.
‘We gave Lebese and Brockie a chance to play and when things don’t work out the players tend to say other things. I don’t victimise players because I don’t like them as a person,’ Mosimane told the media.
‘I am a football person and my common objective is to win games. I don’t have an agenda with a player. We are not in a popularity contest, we are in a football environment. If the player is good and is playing well, he will be given a chance to play.
‘He spent more than a year with us and was given a chance and didn’t deliver. Same with Brockie; he didn’t deliver.
‘Players know that there is a lot of competition at Downs, it’s not a charity organisation where we feel sorry and say that, “He didn’t play last week and let’s give him a chance to play this week.”
‘Whoever influences the club to win the game, has more chances of being on the pitch.’
Sundowns bolstered their squad during the recent transfer window by acquiring the services of Mauricio Affonso, Nyiko Mobbie and Sammy Seabi.
