Richards Bay FC chairman Sifiso Biyela is happy to be selling his players to PSL clubs but has warned that they need to stay grounded so that they can fight for promotion.
Richards Bay recently sold two of their most valued players to PSL clubs and Biyela is proud of his exports.
The Natal Rich Boys sold Khanyisa Mayo to Cape Town City and Austin Dube to Kaizer Chiefs during this transfer window.
Biyela told FARPost that this shows that they had a good team, though he wants his team to focus on the bigger picture.
“It shows that last season we assembled a good sqaud but at the same time we must not get carried away by the interest shown to our players,” he said.
“We still need the very same players to take the team forward. We must also tread very cafefully in terms of releasing players, we are not selling the team, the team is still there.
“For the team to be successful we need players, it means as much as it’s always a good thing for players to progress, at the same time we must be a bit selfish.”
“We still need to continue competing in order to produce good players and compete in the same level we’ve been doing, the goal is to get promotion.
“Right now we are preparing for next season and the coach has told us about his plans, that’s why we are not releasing too many players, there are very few players that are leaving the club,” continued Biyela.
“We are not even looking at signing more than five players, for now I can’t divulge who are those players. We’ll announce our new players in due course, but out of the five he wanted we’ve already given him two,” added Biyela.
