Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane said that every player has a price. Mosimane made the declaration after he was asked by reporters on Monday to comment on reports that his club is interested in re-signing Zimbabwe international, Khama Billiat. He said:
I should be very careful on this issue because I need to respect Kaizer Chiefs, they are a big institution and if they complain to the league they will fine me for poaching their player because he is a Chiefs player.
If we want Khama, we speak to Chiefs and then they will tell us if they are selling or not.
But sometimes if you are not selling, even Lionel Messi has a price. If someone says they will give me $1 million a month, I think I will be gone.
Everybody has a price. We can always say we don’t have a price but even my players have a price.
… Even on that one, I was asked if I would love to have a player like that [Aubrey Ngoma of Cape Town City] and I said who would not want to have a player like that. But if we want Khama, it must be from club to club…we are not amateurs.
