Why Katlego Mashego is against Sundowns’ possible move for Kodisang

Former Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Katlego Mashego has explained why he’s against the possibility of Kobamelo Kodisang moving to Masandawana.

The Brazilians are reportedly chasing the signature of Kodisang ahead for the 2024/25 DStv Premiership season.

Kodisang is currently in the books of Moreirense FC in the Portuguese second division. The talented attacker has so far played 31 matches for Moreirense, scoring one goal and providing three assists.

The 24-year-old winger is in his second season with Moreirense after signing from Sporting Braga in 2022. His best season was during the 2022/23 campaign when he scored 12 goals in 31 games across all competitions.

Kodisang also played for teams such as Platinum Stars, Bidvest Wits, and, A.D. Sanjoanense in his glooming career.

Meanwhile, Sundowns is currently undergoing drastic changes, which saw them part ways with head coach Rulani Mokwena. The Soweto-born tactician is leaving alongside several members of his technical team.

Mokwena parted ways with Sundowns at the back of helping the club clinch their seventh successive league title. The 37-year-old mentor also won the DStv Premiership Coach of the Season award for two seasons in a row.

While Sundowns are linked with a big transfer move for Kodisang, Mashego says the former SA’s junior international is not a player they need at the moment.

“He [Kodisang] is not a player that Sundowns doesn’t have. The players that are at Sundowns are ahead of him, if you look at Themba Zwane, [Marcelo] Allende and Lucas Ribeiro,” Mashego told FARPost.

“So I don’t think he will give them what they don’t have at this point. Maybe in the coming seasons, he will catch up. I think he’s a player who enjoys playing on the wings and not so good with playing in short passing game.”

In addition, Sundowns have cut ties with Bongani Zungu, Brian Onyango, Thabiso Kutumela, and Gaston Sirino.
