Opinion - SuperSport always sell top players to Mamelodi Sundowns & up next is Sipho Mbule?

At times right here in South African Football what makes Mamelodi Sundowns the best is not down to the fact that they are entirely better than anyone at times

In some instances they have needed a helping hand from other teams in the form of them being absolutely poor and not just for one season but for more than two or even at least three

The past four league seasons have been single handedly been dominated by Mamelodi Sundowns as they have claimed four league titles in a row without any form of competition which is staggering

And staggering why? Because South Africa is also home to two of the country's historically biggest football teams in Orlando Pirates as well as Kaizer Chiefs

But those two teams have failed miserably to even compete with Mamelodi Sundowns which is strange and frustrating because they have the financial resources as well to sign the best players in the country

A team that does not necessarily have the financial resources to even compete with Mamelodi Sundowns is SuperSport United who have fallen off from grace over the past ten seasons or so since the time where they won the league title three times in a row

Then again SuperSport United as a consequence of the club's limited resources and finances have had to sell their best players year in year out just to balance the books

And the biggest customer or beneficiary of those financial issues has been Mamelodi Sundowns who have now developed a reputation for signing SuperSport United's best players on a seasonal basis

First it was the extremely talented utility player in Aubrey Modiba who was one of the country's most highly rated players and made the move to Mamelodi Sundowns

Now most recently it has also emerged that Mamelodi Sundowns are seriously looking into the signing of another SuperSport United top shot this time in Sipho Mbule

If of course Mamelodi Sundowns are indeed interested in Sipho Mbule and they eventually end up signing him it will continue a tradition and habit of SuperSport United now being a feeder club for Mamelodi Sundowns
