Grass looks no greener from the bench

The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence, as some Absa Premiership players have discovered.

By now the likes of Richard Henyekane, Thapelo Tshilo and Sibusiso Khumalo – to name just three – will have featured in every minute at their former clubs.

But the only figures the Mamelodi Sundowns trio have accumulated so far are the extra zeros in their bank balances
since their respective transfers to the wealthy Tshwane club at the start of the current campaign.

The decline in outright transactions in the domestic player-transfer market could be being partly affected by those players who are shackled by lucrative deals elsewhere, yet they are not being used and are not for sale.
