The former African coach of the year says his side will not sign a lot of players like they did in recent windows.

Mosimane explained his reasons for signing Silva.

“He’s from Guinea-Bissau, his history is there, everyone knows it,” said Mosimane.

“He was with Liverpool youth, Chelsea youth. He had a good youth programme, but he has never reached his full potential, and he says this is it now.

“He was playing in Greece. We got him in Greece. He had challenges in Greece, and everyone knows the financial system in Greece.”
