Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane jokingly said he would take new signings Jeremy Brockie and Gaston Sirino to a sangoma as they are 'jinxed' in front of goal.
The two January signings were brought in to bolster the goal-scoring department at Sundowns.
But in 10 league and cup matches for Sirino, and eight appearances in all competitions for Brockie, neither have managed to find the net yet.
Mosimane acknowledged the pair's struggles in front of goal, but is not taking the issue too seriously and jokingly suggested that some supernatural intervention could be required.
"They are two people who are really‚ really unfortunate‚" Mosimane was quoted saying by TimesLive.
"We told them we must take them to the township to [see] a sangoma.
"I don't know who has jinxed Brockie. Sirino gets a chance every game but if he doesn't hit the post‚ then he misses an easy one."
The Uruguayan and the New Zealand international will have another shot at scoring when the Brazilians play Bidvest Wits on Saturday evening.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
