The Football411 website reports that The Brazilians have come under criticism for the sheer amount of players on their books, with a host of them being loaned out to PSL rivals.

Mosimane has brought in eight new players during the off-season, coupled with players signed and loaned out in January, Sundowns have been the busiest clubs with 11 arrivals.

"I can guarantee you we will never bring anybody, that I can guarantee you," he said.

"Okay, we have to release some of the players and we are doing that. We give other guys a chance to go play.

"We think that we should not kill their careers, so we are giving them a chance to play. Like Musa Nyatama, very good player. He has to break in the team, very difficult to do so.

"At Bloemfontein Celtic he went there, two days after he was in the starting lineup. So he fits in well there so we need to give him a chance.

"But guys, you must also understand, these are our players. We bought these players and people think we must give out for charity, now they must go because there is a pressure that there is a lot of players.

"Loan players, we've done very well with other players we've loaned. You must look at positives.

"Look at Buhle Mkhwanazi, he is playing for Bafana Bafana now, he is playing for Wits. The biggest transfer. " said Pitso.

"Where does he come from? From Sundowns academy. How did he get there? We gave him a chance to play at University of Pretoria, we loaned him."

Bryce Moon, Edward Manqele and Rashid Sumaila are among those expected to leave the club before the deadline.
