Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has poured cold water over rumours of an imminent move for former Bafana Bafana international Steve Pienaar.
Motaung explained on Wednesday that the Soweto giants had decided not to make a move for the former Everton, who have , player as club management felt they were already well stocked in terms of having experienced players on their books.
"When you sign a player like Steven it is mostly with an eye on mentorship and on the expectation that his experience will rub off on the other players in your team," Motaung was quoted as saying by Times Live.
"We already have senior players like Shabba (Siphiwe Tshabalala) and Itu (Itumeleng Khune) here doing exactly that. What would be the point of going out of our way to bring in Steven to do the same thing?
"I think we are okay in the mentorship department."
Following the revelation made by Motaung, Sundowns appear to be the favourites to land his signature, especially after coach Pitso Mosimane recently stated his admiration for the player.
