All conquering and heavily criticised Mamelodi Sundowns were surprisingly the only club that did not sign players in the January transfer window.

That is despite the criticism that the club received from ex-player Jabu Mahlangu, who said they are signing good players but they are not using them and they are sitting in the stands.

This could be due to Sundowns coasting with this season’s league title with a whopping 23 points ahead of second-placed SuperSport United, with coach Rulani Mokwena saying they would need to let players go rather than signing.

The Tshwane giants are on 55 points after 21 matches, while SSU are on 32 points from 19 games.

While Sundowns did not pay any money to buy in players in January, going with a motto of ‘why fix it when it is not broken’, fourth-placed Orlando Pirates were quite busy – bringing in Makhehleni Makhaula, Craig Martin, Ndumiso Mabena and Souabou Marou.
