Uzoenyi’s High Wages Scare Clubs

Mamelodi Sundowns ace, Ejike Uzoenyi, has attracted interests from within South Africa and beyond, but the major stumbling block has been the high wages the Nigeria forward commands at the PSL club.

Sources told he is one of the highest earners at the PSL club, but refused to put a figure to this salary.

“Ejike is on one of the highest wages at Sundowns and still has a number of years to run on his contract at the club.

“There have been a lot of interests on the player from clubs in South Africa and outside, but for most of them the big consideration is the player’s salary, it is one of the highest at Sundowns.”

Sundowns is yet to decide on Uzoenyi, who has not been registered for the PSL this season after a debut season which was hampered by a long-term injury.

The former Enugu Rangers star, who was the MVP at last year’s CHAN in south Africa, is still training with ‘The Brazilians’ after two major injuries including a groin complaint that needed surgery.
