Maritzburg United could not field three of the players they got from Mamelodi Sundowns as per the loan aggreement, which prohibits all the teams that has been loaned players by Mamelodi Sundowns to play against them.
Most coaches have had difficulties coming to terms with this clause, when Steve could not play S’busiso Khumalo, Kwanda Mngonyama and Ntuthuko Mabaso.
He expressed his frustration with regards to this clause that stop them fielding loaned players, he said ” I know Trott and Alex are going to insult me, but I will say it anyway. Look at this way, you play Sundowns this week with a different team then you draw against them. Then next week you play, Chiefs or Pirates and beat them, with a stronger team, does it mean they are weak??”
“What does this mean to us as teams getting players from Sundowns? This rule must be revisited or reviewed and it means teams must start buying players stop being loaned.” He concluded.
