A one-team show is un­healthy for the league

I fully agree with Mamelodi Sun­downs pres­i­dent Pa­trice Mot­sepe that his club’s pol­icy of loan­ing out play­ers needs to be re­viewed.

My ques­tion is: Why are they buy­ing th­ese play­ers in the first place if they are go­ing to loan them out?

We want a com­pet­i­tive league and not a one-team show. It is un­healthy for the league to be dom­i­nated by one team just be­cause they have an un­fair ad­van­tage when op­po­si­tion play­ers are not al­lowed to play against them.

It must also be noted that play­ers join Sun­downs be­cause they want to play and not just to sit on the bench or watch from the stands.

They all want to play and show­case their tal­ents.

My worry is that this setup has led to a sit­u­a­tion where we now only have three clubs chal­leng­ing Sun­downs for the league.

They are Kaizer Chiefs, Or­lando Pi­rates and Bid­vest Wits. It shouldn’t be like that. The Pre­mier Soc­cer League should come to the party in find­ing a so­lu­tion for this co­nun­drum.
