Dolly is linked with a move to Greek giants Olympiacos, while Laffor is said to have signed a pre-contract with Kaizer Chiefs.

“Mamelodi Sundowns will immediately release Keagan Dolly if it receives an offer in terms of the buyout clause that was agreed between Dolly and Mamelodi Sundowns and that was upheld in terms of the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber,” said Motsepe, as quoted on the club’s Twitter account.

“We will never keep a player if they want to leave, we have brought in quality players, like Zakri, Morena, Vila to fill key roles in the team. We are not worried. Never build a club around one player.

“On Anthony Laffor’s future at the club: If any player has opportunities to leave, progress & earn more money we should let them leave.

“On the issue of losing players abroad: We expect over the next 10 years to release some of our best players to top European clubs but also to develop quality players at our academy & continue bringing the best South African, African and South American players to the club.”
