Done Deal || New Downs Striker To Take Bench After Dumping Kaizer Chiefs' Offer?

The future of a very promising striker now lays in the hands of Mamelodi sundowns as their board contemplate on what to do with him. After recalling that Sundowns stole him away after Kaizer Chiefs showed interest, it will be a shame to see his career die on the bench when he could have been made a integer part of the new Kaizer Chiefs Sqaud.

Mamelodi Sundowns will welcome new striker Abubecker Nasir as pre-season kicks off, but Siya's side have been told the technical team has an important decision to make for the player. Sundowns signed for the Ethiopian national in the January transfer window but was sent back to his club Ethiopian Coffee to meet him at Chlorkop in July.

According to information from Siya's team, Sundowns will examine the player to determine if he is ready to enter Chloorkop's starting line-up. Otherwise, they can hire players to gain valuable experience in local games before summoning them. However, that decision will only be made after the player has spent some time in training and the friendly, which the Sundowns are expected to play during pre-season training.

Nasir performed well for Ethiopia during 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. Nasir provided the opening assist in Ethiopia's 2-0 win over Egypt on Thursday night. The striker scored from the penalty spot in last week's 2-1 win against Malawi. He will be hoping to be in good form at the Sundowns to ensure he gets into the team early on.

Opinion

It seems that Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are involved in buying fired players to gain knowledge and devise their respective game plans. Next season in the Dstv Premier League will certainly be difficult and the teams that are not promoted will definitely be eliminated, but Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns will definitely be close contenders considering the number of players who managed they've managed to sign this transfer season.
