"It will be very difficult to replace him, but we must live with that reality. For now, we have to try and find other options from other clubs or even in the lower divisions, but it will be very difficult to replace Abubeker. He is going back to Sundowns in June as per the agreement that we had with them at the beginning of the year.
"We have already agreed on the deal, and it has been done according to the agreement with no further communication from Sundowns. The transactions that had to go through have been done and the players belong to Mamelodi Sundowns. This is the biggest transfer in the history of the club."
This was Sundowns second bit of transfer business thus far, having signed the highly rated Sipho Mbule earlier this month, as per IOL. George Maluleka is the only departure from the club thus far in the off-season
