“It wasn’t a decision that we made. We sat down with Sipho’s agent, Mike Makaab and we discussed what range of options are out there and what environment they felt he could give his best and be his best,” said Matthews.

“When they came back and said they found a place in Sundowns, we did a deal and I was open and upfront for many months now, saying Sipho would most likely leave us at the end of the season.”

“It never really got to a club-bidding war or anything like that. I was really more dialogue between ourselves and Mike Makaab than anything else.”
