Mogakolodi Ngele has found it difficult to make an impact at the Brazilians, and has handed in a transfer request.
The attacking midfielders agent Tim Sukazi revealed the news.
“We have now made a request in writing that due to a lack of game time, our client wishes to be sold or loaned out where he can possibly get some game time because he is growing increasingly frustrated on the sidelines at Sundowns. He really should be playing more,” Sukazi told the Star newspaper.
“He understands that competition was tough and those in his position were doing well, but it does not change the fact that he still wanted to play.”
The 25-year-old wants to start impressing as a regular team player again. He only made 15 appearances in all competitions last season.
“We expect the club to be reasonable. He is not saying he wants a clearance. He has a contract that has one more year to run and has an option for Sundowns to renew it if they so wish, hence he is asking maybe to be sold or loaned out if possible so he can start enjoying football again.”
“By his nature, the player is not a very confrontational person. I suppose this has been to his detriment because some players demand answers and suddenly their situation changes and they get given a chance. As his agent, I have spoken out on his behalf to see if we can find a solution,” Sukazi added.
