Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has told exclusively that he’s received offers from unnamed clubs in Holland and France for highly-rated defender Rashid Sumaila.

Scouts from the two countries watched the Ghanaian international during the Black Stars 1-0 defeat against the Netherlands in a pre-World Cup friendly last Saturday.

The 21-year-old put in a strong showing for the Africans and Mosimane has revealed lots of offers have poured in for his talented centre-back.

“I watched the game against Holland after he had alerted me to watch in case I needed to chip in a word,” Mosimani

“But after that I can tell you clubs over there and in France were already checking on him, so that’s your answers to the question if I think he had a good game.”

The former Kotoko defender enjoyed a successful debut season with Sundowns after helping them to win the South African Premier League.

He featured 22 times for the Brazilians as they lifted the trophy in seven years.

He has made the country 23-man squad for the global showpiece in Brazil which starts next week Wednesday.

    @Jeff, we west Africans are brave, hard-working and adventurous. We're not lazy and backward like you animals from the south who are still slaves of the white man. Maybe you should thank those white pigs cos without them, y'all will be a bunch of stupid drunken imbeciles who rape anything that has a hole. Mind you west Africans don't sit around on weekday mornings drinking and plotting against others who do honest work. No wonder your hiv infested women run after west African men like the cheap dogs they are. I supposed you're punch drunk on cheap beer and braai, reason you're here spewing this crap but I do understand, the Whiteman has built your country, with some of the best sporting facilities but guess what?...You suck at football and you'll never be able to match up to west Africa in anything. Fucking lazy kafir moron.
