CAPE TOWN – Mamelodi Sundowns have bolstered their already star-studded squad with a central defender from Kaizer Chiefs.
Masandawana have recruited the 20-year-old Tristan Moses, who campaigned for the Chiefs MultiChoice Diski Shield team last season.
But despite the Amakhosi winning the title, Moses announced in a video that he posted on Twitter on Monday why he was leaving Naturena.
“Time to move onto my next challenge. I want to thank Kaizer Chiefs. My time spent there has moulded me into the man and player I am today. I want to thank my family, teammates and the Amakhosi Faithful for all the love and support shown. Nothing can stop a hungry lion,” he posted, before adding in the video:
“It’s my time now to move on from Kaizer Chiefs. I’m sad to leave the club, but at the same time, I’m excited for the future.
“I’m blessed to have the opportunities that I do. So, to Kaizer Chiefs and the Amakhosi Faithful, I’m grateful for the opportunity that was given to me. It has shaped me into the player and man that I am today, and I will forever appreciate you all.”
About an hour later, Moses revealed on Twitter that he was changing allegiance to Sundowns. “I’m happy to announce that I’ve joined the @Masandawana family. God has always been there for me and will always be there for me and my family. I want to thank Mamelodi Sundowns and the president for showing belief in me. Looking forward to working and growing with the team.”

Moses joins the likes of Andile Jali, Toni Silva and Jose Ali Meza as new faces at Chloorkop, while it is believed that left wing Lyle Lakay is also set to join the PSL champions from Cape Town City.
Sundowns are currently in Togo for a Caf Champions League clash against AS Togo-Port on Tuesday.
“It’s the first time that we’re in Togo,” coach Pitso Mosimane said in a video on Sundowns’ Twitter account.
“It’s good – good place, good country, everything is good. The hotel is good, the bus is good, training is good, no problems. We have a few injuries, and other players did not come because they are waiting for a work permit.”
