Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has rejected the notion that he 'tapped' up players during the past transfer window.

SuperSport United and Cape Town City owners Stan Matthews and John Comitis have been vocal in their discontent over the Brazilians' alleged transfer style.

Mosimane has been accused of talking to the likes of Lebo Manyama, Aubrey Ngoma and Jeremie Brockie without the consent of the players' contracted clubs.

"All the players we wanted, we spoke with their teams. We made formal offers, but it is just people want to make noise about it and it is always good for media," he told IOL website

"They always say we are poaching their players. Why would I poach your players?

"By the way, how are you going to sign the player if you don't talk to him? Did Barcelona speak to (Ousmane) Dembele (whom they signed from Borussia Dortmund) when they signed him? Did they speak to him? What if he doesn't want to play for you?

"It happens between Arsenal and Chelsea. The clubs agreed, and Alex Oxlade-Chimberlain refused (he ended up joining Liverpool). The deal can be made between the two clubs, and the player can also say 'I don’t want to play for you' and then? It is embarrassing," Mosimane added.
