Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns stalwart Surprise Moriri could be on his way out of the club after negotiations over a contract extension seem have reached an impasse.
The 36-year-old veteran is without a contract at Sundowns after his deal expired at the end of last season.
Brazilians head coach Pitso Mosimane admitted that he was conflicted about the situation due to his admiration for Moriri.
"Surprise the legend. He has contractual issues with Sundowns. He is the legend and played so many years here," Mosimane told KickOff.
"I am not happy with the situation that he is not here but let's be realistic also why he is not here. He wants to play. His contract is up and we have to renew his contract so that he could play.
"As much as he is quality, a very good guy in the dressing room with no controversies but how much game-time is he going to get?
"There is Vila, Zakri, Percy Tau. Let's be honest if you checked the number of games he played before last season. The games are getting smaller and smaller."
