Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has shed some light on his decision to let Jeremy Brockie and George Lebese leave the club in the recently-concluded transfer window.

Mosimane pointed out that he had nothing against either of the players, but that they simply failed to make an impact at Chloorkop.

Former Sundowns winger Lebese was released by the club earlier this week, while ex-New Zealand international Brockie was loaned out to Maritzburg United.

"We gave Lebese and Brockie a chance to play and when things don’t work out the players tend to say other things. I don’t victimize players because I don’t like them as a person,’ Mosimane said as quoted by the Daily Sun.

"I am a football person and my common objective is to win games. I don’t have an agenda with a player. We are not in a popularity contest, we are in a football environment. If the player is good and is playing well, he will be given a chance to play.

“He spent more than a year with us and was given a chance and didn’t deliver. Same with Brockie he didn’t deliver.

“Players know that there is a lot of competition at Downs, it’s not a charity organisation where we feel sorry and say that ‘he didn’t play last week and let’s give him a chance to play this week’.

"Whoever influences the club to win the game, has more chances of being on the pitch."

Sundowns signed Mauricio Affonso, Nyiko Mobbie and Sammy Seabi in the transfer window, and while Aubrey Ngoma and Lucky Mohomi were linked with departures, they have been retained by the club.
