Cape Town - Mamelodi
Sundowns midfielder Asavela Mbekile is seemingly looking to engineer a move
away from the Tshwane giants after failing to cement any sort of regular role

The 28-year-old has managed just one start for the
Brazilians since joining from Moroka Swallows at the end of last season,
although he still earned a call to South Africa's 34-man preliminary Africa Cup
of Nations squad.
However, he was then cut from the final 23 headed to
Equatorial Guinea, and Mbekile's agent, Tim Sukazi, admits the playmaker may be
forced to look for employment elsewhere.
"It is true that Mbekile has become very frustrated at
Sundowns at this point, which I understand, because every player wants to play.
Sadly it is only eleven players who can start the game," Sukazi told Soccer Laduma.
"In this case, he is now more inspired by the call to
the (preliminary) national team which he received despite not playing at
Sundowns, and he has questioned his situation.
"He firmly believes that he could have been in the 23
member squad to Equatorial Guinea had he been playing at his club, therefore it
makes sense to him to move away so that he can play as he believes that he can
play at any team in this country.
"I will be talking to Sundowns' management so that we
can solve this matter of extreme urgency."
