Mamelodi Sundowns slogan says "Sky is the Limit" and that on its own is all that they need to go after their huge plans. They have been able to dominate the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for the past decade, and they continue to push boundaries and break records. They have been able to master their winning formula and created a winning mentality within their squad. One thing that has scared numerous teams in the PSL about Sundowns is that they're not afraid to table offers for players within South Africa and also, abroad. As big spenders, the Brazilians will pay millions of rands for a quality player that they feel needs to be at Chloorkop to help the club with reaching its mandate.
Now, the Downs co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi has shared some interesting news about their recent misses in the transfer window. As they were hoping to strengthen their squad with some household names from abroad. According to Mngqithi, they missed out on signing the likes of Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior and Liverpool’s Luis Diaz which is something the technical team spoke about during the transfer window. They took too long to make up their minds, hence Diaz ended up moving to the English Premier League giants Liverpool FC last week. After he had an incredible first half of the season at FC Porto scoring 14 goals and registered eight assists in just 18 appearances. “We’ve missed out on a lot of other players, and one of them has now signed for Liverpool, can you believe it?... We should have signed him before he joined Porto... We were on top of Diaz, but due to a one or two day delay, he signed for Porto and is now at Liverpool," said Mngqithi speaking to the media.
The former Golden Arrows mentor stated that they've been looking at a different players across numerous leagues. Even the likes of Vinicius that plays for Madrid." Even Vinicius was on our list of people we should have signed,” said Mngqithi speaking to the media.
