Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane reveals there is not much he can do to prevent Kaizer Chiefs poaching defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele.

Mphahlele is on the verge of leaving Sundowns for free when his contract expires at the end of this month and fans of the club are disappointed the Brazilians have not been able to convince him to renew his deal.

However, Chiefs have reportedly offered the defender a lucrative contract offer and signing-on bonus that Downs are unable to match.

"Yes we need Rama. I'd like Rama to stay in the team, but now the issue is beyond me," Mosimane told Goal website.

"It is Rama and the club management, and his agents. It is beyond me and my technical team.

"The challenge is, I hear Chiefs are breaking the bank. What can you do? Rama must get what he thinks is right for himself. It is his future, he served me well as a captain and played all the games when he was available."
