Some of Bidvest Wits players have put the pen on the paper for Mamelodi Sundowns since the Clever Boys will be defunct next season. Ricardo Goss, Hashim Domingo and Gift Motupa will be joining Masandawana next season and one will wonder if they’ll fit in to the team with so much quality.
Former Bidvest Wits defender Matthew Booth, in his opinion, thinks both three players will be able to adapt to the Sundowns quality. However, he thinks Ricardo Goss will probably struggle to get game time as he will be competing with two of the best goalkeepers in the country, Dennis Onyango and Kennedy Mweene.
The 43-year-old retired defender says he would love to see a Domingo and Motupa combination at Sundowns as he thinks coach Pitso Mosimane will be forced to change his tactics next season. The competition will be fierce at the Chloorkop based outfit as the new signings will be looking to cement their place in the starting eleven.
“I think all three players have a lot of quality,” Booth told FrunSports.com
“I think Goss probably will struggle out of the three in getting game time, but I think he is taking it as an opportunity to learn from two of the best goalkeepers in the country, Dennis Onyango and Kennedy Mweene.”
“From Domingo and Motupa point of view, I would love to see Domingo playing as a out-right ten, behind Motupa as a nine, Sundowns haven’t played in that manner this season but I foresee Pitso Mosimane changing his tactics next season and perhaps using an out-right striker with a proper number ten.”
“The competition will be fierce and I don’t think that Sundowns will necessarily let anyone go, they always have ambitions of doing well in the continent and chasing the title and all the cups, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they will release players.”
“But I think all three are very good signings for Sundowns and if they go there with confidence that they will start, then they have a chance to get game time surely,” he concluded.
