SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews on why the club sold Bafana Bafana midfielder Aubrey Modiba to Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.
“The club has been consistent in our approach to the release of players for many years now,” said Matthews in a statement.
“When a player helps us win trophies, plays his part in the club’s progress and gets a massive opportunity which is good for both him and us – then we open to discussion.
“Sundowns have been pursuing Aubrey for a long time and the reality is we cannot come anywhere close to what is available to him.
“He has been a fantastic player for us on the pitch, a wonderful young man off the field, of whom we are very proud, and we wish him every success in the future – a future which looks very bright indeed.”
