Gauteng giants making double signings from Sundowns


In case you’ve forgotten, Nyiko Mobbie and Ricardo Goss are Mamelodi Sundowns players. News coming out of Tshwane say the duo are set for permanent moves rather than new loan spells.

SUPERSPORT UNITED FINILISING DEALS FOR MAMELODI SUNDOWNS

The 29-year-old Mobbie signed for Kabo Yellow in 2019 from Free State Stars. Remarkably, the right-back from Shikundu, Limpopo spent the last four years on loan at clubs like Stellenbosch FC, Chippa United and Sekhukhune United. Meanwhile, Ricardo Goss, who signed for Sundowns in 2020 from Bidvest Wits, spent a loan spell with the defunct club and at SuperSport United.

According to SABC Sport, SuperSport United are finilising deals to sign both Mobbie and Goss from Sundowns on permanent deals.

“Mamelodi Sundowns pair of goalkeeper Ricardo Goss and defender Nyiko Mobbie are set to join crosstown rivals SuperSport United in the coming days, SABC Sport can reveal,” the report.

“The 30-year-old [Goss] wants to continue playing regular football to remain in contention for the national team, ahead of crucial 2026 FIFA World Cup and 2025 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers during the international calendar. According to information gathered by the public broadcaster, SuperSport are now in advanced talks to retain the shot-stopper’s services and will be joined by right-back Nyiko Mobbie, who has also been out on loan at Sekhukhune United. 

“Both players were at the AFCON with Bafana earlier this year, as part of the group that clinched a bronze medal under coach Hugo Broos.

“Mobbie, now 29, joined Sundowns from the now-defunct Free State Stars five years ago, but struggled to break into the Tshwane giants’ starting line-up. He has since been around the block – having spent loan spells at Stellenbosch FC, then Chippa United and most recently Sekhukhune from September 2021 until the end of last season.

“SABC Sport understands Matsatsantsa are in discussions to also make the move for the defender a permanent one instead,” the report added.

STEVE KOMPHELA

Mamelodi Sundowns have surprised us again in less than a week. Steve Komphela is back and it’s job number 18 of his career.

The Kroonstad-born coach left the club in the late stages of 2023. After a couple of brief stints at Moroka Swallows and Golden Arrows, Komphela’s return has been announced by the champions, where he will assist Manqoba Mngqithi, who is still viewed as the caretaker coach.

“I am very excited to be back at Mamelodi Sundowns where I was always inspired and treated with respect and love,” Komphela said as quoted by iDiski Times.

“I am committed to contributing to the Club achieving its goals in South Africa and on the African Continent,” he added.
