Top five Sundowns foreign stars this season


Mamelodi Sundowns have had a great opportunity to look abroad for talented and quality players. All of this was done so that Sundowns can maintain their dominance in the DStv Premiership and then work towards winning another CAF Champions League title. It’s great to see a South African team utilizing their resources to get superb international players which will bring more attention to the local league. It has been reported that the Brazilians have used up all their five foreign spots in the 2021/22 season. This means that if they want to register other foreign players to participate in their games then they’ll have to release out their current five players.

This isn’t something that Downs will be willing to do, as they’ve signed players that are a necessity on their side and will contribute to the team’s success. Initially, the Premier Soccer League only allows five foreign players on each team. However, other teams may get a slight upper hand when their players have been registered as permanent residents which mean they’re regarded as locals. This is achieved when a player has been in South Africa for a certain number of years and contributing to his PSL team. According to Soccer Laduma, Masandawana has reached its maximum of non-South African players namely the defender Ricardo Nascimento from Brazil, Divine Lunga from Zimbabwe, the attacker Peter Shalulile from Namibia, Pavol Safranko from Slovakia, and then the Uruguayan Gaston Sirino.

When it comes to Brian Onyango, it is believed that he’s registered as a local player, since he has permanent residency documents. This was something that Downs needed to have more options in their defense. As this will be a long and difficult season. Meanwhile, Bangaly Soumaharo is believed to be on his way out of Chloorkop. As he has been struggling to break into the starting line-up. However, the parties are believed to be in talks to release him since he’s not part of the technical teams’ plans.
