Sun­downs loan pol­icy is not fair play

CityPress - - Sport - Wandile Mtana Uiten­hage via email

Mamelodi Sun­downs Pres­i­dent Pa­trice Mot­sepe’s de­ci­sion to re­view his club’s player-loan pol­icy has cre­ated enor­mous de­bate on dif­fer­ent plat­forms.

For some ob­servers, this was plain vi­o­la­tion of the prin­ci­ples of fair play in foot­ball.

It tended to un­der­mine the game and some teams suf­fered from this pol­icy be­cause their play­ers can’t play against Sun­downs when on loan.

Statis­tics show that big teams still have more pow­ers than small teams and this loan pol­icy con­trib­utes to this.

There needs to be a pol­icy to curb Sun­downs’ ex­ces­sive ex­pen­di­ture be­cause it’s not good for our foot­ball. Even agents seem to be fall­ing all over them­selves to do busi­ness wwith Sun­downs be­cause of their deep pock­ets.

We need a so­lu­tion to re­solve Mamelodi Sun­downs’ dom­i­nance in the player-trans­fer mar­ket.
