Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth believes that Pitso Mosimane will have to trim his Mamelodi Sundowns squad ahead of the new season.

The 38-year-old thinks that, in order for the Chloorkop side to find consistency and challenging for the PSL title again, Mosimane will need to offload some dead weight.

“For me, Sundowns needs to be consistent in the selection of players and getting positive results before they can challenge for the league again,” Booth told Sport24.

The retired centre back says Mosimane should learn from Kaizer Chiefs' successes of last season where the team was consistent in the selection of their line-up.

Booth said it is only when the team has harmony and togetherness in the dressing room that they are a force to be reckoned with on the field.

“I have always maintained that consistency is very key to the success of any team and it the case of Sundowns, the coach does not need new players, but to trim his squad.

“Pitso must make sure he gets the best out of the players that performed for him,” said Booth.
