SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews has said that Mamelodi Sundowns’ power in the transfer market makes it harder for PSL teams to compete with the Chloorkop giants.
Sundowns are known for being big spenders in South African football and have acquired football talents from around the world in their quest to become a powerhouse in African football.
The SSU CEO mentioned that no other team in the PSL has the capacity to spend as much as the reigning DStv Premiership champions.
“There’s no team that can challenge Sundowns right now – from a depth and expenditure perspective,” Matthews said according to iDiskiTimes.
“So none of us are buying players around for $3-million (R52 million).
“We have to sell players because that is part of our funding model. We bring players in at low costs, we get them to a certain level beyond which I can’t pay them what other clubs can pay them.
“If I can pay them X amount of money and Sundowns or another club is coming to offer two or three X, that is the time where we say ‘we cannot hold this kid back, he has added value to our club, and has achieved our objectives.”
