Do Tshwane giants and current PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns ruin players' careers, or are they simply a solid squad with too much depth and too many outstanding players? 

All football supporters and clubs throughout the world want their team to be the best in the league, to have the best players, and to always win matches. Teams like Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid have too much depth, and any player can come off the bench and win a match for them. These teams, like Mamelodi Sundowns, have too many good players, and having too much depth is not a bad thing.

When you look at all of these players, you'll notice that their bench isn't filled with players that are as good as the starters. Mamelodi Sundowns signs players for fun, although it occasionally appears that they do so out of greed. They have forwards Peter Shalulile, Themba Zwane, and Gaston Sirino, but they added Thabiso Kutumela, Kermit Erasmus, and Neo Maema since they didn't want other teams to be stronger. These players aren't starters, but they were starters on their previous teams, so why sign a player you don't actually need? 

They signed George Lebese and George Maluleka who were starters at Kaizer Chiefs just to keep them on the bench, which is extremely unfair and cruel.

As a result, Mamelodi Sundowns is gradually damaging players' careers. When players perform well for their respective teams and then join Mamelodi Sundowns, there is a good chance that they will not get enough game time and would be forgotten, eventually leading to their release. 

Where are George Lebese, George Maluleke, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Gift Motupa, Oupa Manyisa, Phakamani Mahlambi, Aubrey Ngoma, Jeremy Brockie, and other former Mamelodi Sundowns players? They didn't get much playing time at Sundowns, and their careers suffered as a result.
