Here’s Why Wits Can’t Sign Game Time Starved George Lebese From Sundowns! When the 29 year old star made his move from Kaizer Chiefs to Sundowns, it was a childhood dream.
But Lebese has found himself forgotten and bench warming at Masandawana. There are top PSL clubs interested in signing Lebese including Bidvest Wits but there is a stumbling block and it’s the salary.
“Do you think Sundowns are ever going to let a player come to us? The last time they lent us players we won the league‚ so they will never do that again. We will consider any good player available‚ but the problem of taking players from Sundowns‚ Chiefs and Pirates is wages. We don’t pay those wages,” Wits coach Hunt said.
“If you get a player in Europe who is not playing at his club‚ he will go to a lesser club and take a pay cut. But players don’t want to do that here in South Africa. Instead they want more and we can’t afford to pay more. Please don’t get me wrong‚ I am not talking about this player (Lebese) but I am talking in general terms,” he added.
“I don’t think we will get a player from Sundowns.They can do what they like because they control the market‚ so be it.”
Do you think Lebese would take a pay cut for some game time?
