Sundowns to retain Mwanjali



The Asiagate scandal dented the image of Mamelodi Sundowns defender Method Mwanjali so much so that many thought he would not stay at the South African club.

But the team’s technical director Trot Moloto has assured that the former CAPS United defender will stay longer at Sundowns, though his current contract expires in June this year.

Moloto, who was in Zimbabwe to discuss friendly games with Dynamos, CAPS United and Highlanders, said that the club will renew Mwanjali’s contract.

“We will renew Method’s contract. He is in the coach’s plans and we have to keep him at the team. He won’t be going anywhere as he has shown that he still wants to play for Sundowns and that Sundowns still want to have him,” Moloto said.

Mwanjali has meanwhile paid the US$6 000 appeals fine for his life ban for his involvement in the Asiagate scandal.

At Sundowns, Mwanjali didn’t play much under Johan Neeskens as he faced competition from Aljie Schut and Clayton Daniels in central defence, but since the arrival of new coach Pitso Mosimane, the Zimbabwean has been given some game time and done well.

His stay, however, will depend on the outcome of the Asiagate appeal case which, if he loses, he will be banned from football activities for life.
