Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has come out to reassure supporters that the club are “not casual” about dealing with player contract matters.

According to the club’s official website, Mosimane ensured that the club will keep important players ahead of the new season which kicks off in August.

“We’ve been dealing with contracts to be renewed,” Mosimane said.

“Some players have option clauses in their contracts which favour the club, and we have exercised options on the contracts of players like Leo Castro and Wayne Arendse and we will be keeping them for the next year.

“There has been lots of talk and speculation about our players. We need to assure our supporters that we are not casual about contracts. We are working hard to finalise them.”

Mosimane said that management had assured him that all outstanding contracts are being attended to, including the contract of Khama Billiat which is being negotiated even though he still has 18 months to run on his contract.

Meanwhile, Mosimane confirmed that club captain Hlompho Kekana’s contract has been renewed as the season comes to a close.

“People must realise that contracts are negotiated, and this is not an easy process. We recently concluded negotiations for a contract extension for our captain Hlompho Kekana, and his contract has been renewed. Keeping our captain is important,” Mos

“He led the team to the Champions League and the Super Cup, and through the current league season. It is important to keep him and other important players as we begin the defence of the Champions League.”

“But with all the games we have been playing, we just could not tie down things as we did not want to destabilise our players either.”
