Mamelodi Sundowns co-head coach Manqoba Mngqithi has revealed that they have been monitoring Erwin Mario Saavedra, who is rumoured to be joining the club before the season resumes.
Over the weekend, reports in Bolivia stated Masandawana will sign the attacking midfielder from Bolivar in a deal worth R18.5 million ($1.2 million)
When asked about the player Mngqithi didn’t want to confirm nor deny whether Downs will indeed sign him, but put it in record that the club’s management has been working on a deal recently.
The Masandawana mentor says he has watched the player several times and he believes Saavedra would be a good player for the club.
“What I can say to you, I know many players and that name also is familiar to me,” he told Thomas Mlambo on the Ultimate Sport Show.
“He is a player that I’ve watched him a lot, a player we believe he has something to give.
“He is a player that we have spoken with management about, but on how far this thing are, I would not like to consider talking, but I do know the player, and he is a good football player.”
