“Once You’re Signed At Chloorkop, You’re Going Nowhere!” – Reader’s Voice

Default

Mamelodi Sundowns’ style of play and their involvement in the CAF competition has been sublime. Their success on the continental stage drew attention from many clubs abroad , now interested in the team’s players. 

With the clubs abroad knocking, it’s a good thing not only for the club, but the players who are wanted too. It is almost every player's dream of playing football on a bigger stage and reach greater heights in Europe. However, Sundowns have been reluctant in releasing players when their services are required abroad. 

First it was Keagan Dolly, as Downs wanted to block his move to Europe, as he wanted  to play for French club Montpellier, who made an offer. Dolly went back and forth until they had no choice but to release the Bafana Bafana winger. 

Most recently, it's the 2015/16 player of the season, Khama Billiat. It is understood that Saudi Arabian side, Al-Nassr, were interested in his services, however their offer didn't match the Zimbabwean's buyout clause of €2.5 (about R39m), as a result they pulled out of their interest. 

I mean this is just a clear attempt to block Khama's progress as a player by putting such big buyout clauses. It's really disappointing from Sundowns and shows how little they care about the growth and progress of their own players. 

What's with Sundowns and their unwillingness to release players to grow and play abroad? Isn't that the ultimate objective? It's as if Masandawana are saying once you’re signed at Chloorkop, you’re never leaving. Good luck to all players at Mamelodi Sundowns.

Khama is a great player that should have been given a chance abroad while he was blooming , because each and every player have a dream of playing abroad . so please South African teams should give this boys chance to prove themselves abroad , also its a great opportunity for them to grow through their career, also for other divisions eg Mvela , vodacom Patrick Motsepe league. seeing their fellow African brothers making it abroad its a huge inspiration

It is disturbing that some members think Khama isn't giving his all at Kby ,I would like to disagree 1st he missed 9games not because he wanted but because of the injury he got playing against Maritzburg, I don't doubt his loyalty to Sundowns a bit,we can't expect him to perform miracles he isn't invincible. The whole shift of the blame should be directed to the whole team ,for instance I don't like to single players but Villa,Tau,Zakri,Morena,Kekana didn't perform on Sunday ,had we started the game with two central midfielders in Hlompo & Manyisa we will be talking a different story ,so pliz give the young man a chance contracts are for the management

This buyout clause is ridiculous if only he was an overseas player then ot would have been fine. Sadly Sundowns will lose Billiat and get nothing because he wont renew his contract with the team that is intentionally blocking his move else where.

Show Downs the money nd Billiat is yours, thats what we did with Lebese, kaizer thieves are desperate for money so when Downs showed them the cheque book they sold us the boy. Thieves faithfools are unxooled when it comes to Football matters.

You are just looking for attention idiot, how is sundowns blocking these players or are u suggesting that Sundowns players must be release for free ? Its nice when sundowns are paying big money for these players and later you and tell us that they blocking the more the buy out clause is there its not something new in football,Nxa if they want Billiat they must pay finish .

We as the Sundowns family care about the benefits and well being of our players we take care of the players interests and we ensure that they grow at any level to gather as much experience they need i'm opposing the statement written in this article

Sundowns is not a selling team it is an ambitious team that wants to dominate locally and on the continent,that's why we buy quality players. However if a team triggers the buyout clause we will release that respective player. Secondly,when we buy players we buy them to play for us,and we are not going to be bullied or dictated by players whenever they feel they want to join another team,while he still have a contract with us.. Billiat is our player and is still contracted to us FINISH AND KLAAR..
