Mamelodi Sundowns chairman Tlhopie Motsepe insists they are not intent on hoarding all South Africa's talent, as it's the players who want to sign for them.
The Brazilians have been criticised for seemingly snapping up all the best young players, which has made the DStv Premiership a bit of a one-horse race in recent years.
The Chloorkop outfit have won five consecutive league titles and already enjoy a five-point lead at the top of the standings after nine games.
However, Motsepe has responded to the criticism by pointing out that it’s often the players themselves who want to play for Sundowns because they see it as a good club to develop themselves.
“I don’t know where the criticism has come from in that regard. Players want to come to Mamelodi Sundowns as a place where they can improve themselves and achieve their dreams in football,” said Motsepe, according to Sowetan Live.
“We have had the blessing and opportunity to honour an incredibly special player in Hlompho Kekana, but when Kekana was at Sundowns, he was playing and competing with Teko Modise and he was competing with guys like Tiyani Mabunda, who is right here with us.
“Iron sharpens iron, and the fact that these good players want to come to Sundowns is because they want to achieve their dreams and improve as players.”
