Mnguni says no player in the PSL is ready for overseas currently

Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Bennett Mnguni says he doesn't see any player in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) currently who could move overseas like Bongani Zungu and Percy Tau.

Mnguni played for Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow in the UEFA Champions League and scored a goal against Spanish giants Real Madrid in 2002.

According to him, the coronavirus pandemic has caused a lot of damage and has ruined the dreams of many players who were hoping to move overseas.

"Right now, I think it will be very hard for any PSL player to win an overseas contract because this pandemic has done lot of damage worldwide," Mnguni told KickOff.com.

According to him, being a long break will also make it hard for most players to compete should the season resumes. "So, for us to produce another top player to Europe, may be a little bit harder."

Mnguni started his football career at Sundowns, before joining Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow in February 2002.

He left Lokomotiv after a year and joined another Russian side Rostov before moving to Tianjin Teda in China in 2005.

In SA, he also played for the now defunct, Thanda Royal Zulu and AmaZulu.
