Cape Town - Mamelodi
Sundowns have confirmed their players will only return for pre-season training
on June 30, given the fact their season ended a week later than the rest.

The Brazilians capped off the 2014/15 PSL campaign with
victory over Ajax Cape Town in the Nedbank Cup final, seven days after the
Premiership campaign had concluded.
As such, the Tshwane giants opted to give the squad an extra
week off in a bid to recharge batteries ahead of the new season, which kicks
off in mid-August.
"Yes the players are expected to meet for the preseason
on June 30," Sundowns media officer Thulani Thuswa told Soccer Laduma.
"You know we finished the season a bit late and that's
why we they are only coming back next week."
The dethroned Premiership champions are also set to make
decisions on the futures of Kwanda Mngonyama, Abel Mabaso, Sibusiso Kumalo,
Musa Nyatama and Mukuka Mulenga, who were all out on loan last season, and who
could once again be farmed out for the 2015/16 campaign.
