Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns technical director Mike Ntombela has said although they have let veteran midfielder Elias Pelembe leave the team and join BidVest Wits, they still respect him.

He told Sport24 that the Mozambican is a legend at Sundowns and that he will always be respected at the club.

"We have parted ways in a good way," Ntombela said.

“He has done a lot for the team and I think it was time for him to move on.

“The coaches felt there was nothing much he could offer to the team and we wanted him to continue playing hence the decision to let him go.

“But we respect him and what he has done with us.”
