SuperSport United coach Kaitano says reports linking midfielders Teboho Mokoena and Sipho Mbule to Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are affecting their focus.

‘Players are people too, and that can frustrate them at some point, but it’s our job to make sure we keep them focused because they’re still SuperSport players until something happens, then we can start talking about it.
‘The players know they have to continue to be SuperSport players, and they did, and they’ve done well all these years.
‘These talks have been going on for some time, but the players have remained focused and there has always been progress in their development. Their attitude in training is still the same and that makes it much better. ”

“As coaches we do have players we want to sign and strengthen the team here and there, but at the same time it is important to try to work within our means and get the best out of our possessions.
“We have players who are part of the team and we believe in that. Our energy must also reflect this as management and coaching staff so that we can get the best out of them. ”
