Mbule was one of the players who was at the centre of numerous stories during the transfer window, with SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews delivering a scathing review of his conditioning after the Christmas break.

Speaking to SA FM, Matthews said Mbule’s ill-discipline is the reason he would not be sold to any club at this stage, despite having reportedly been on the radar of both Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns in this past January transfer window.

Matthews said while Mbule arrived at the same time as Teboho Mokoena at SuperSport United, he hasn’t done enough to take his football to another level.

Mbule may be one of the well-known figures in Kaitano Tembo’s team, but he hasn’t played since 24 November 2021 when SuperSport United held Sundowns to a 2-2 draw. He missed Matsatsantsa’s final five league matches of 2021, and that surely added to talk that he could seek an exit.

Previously, his agent Mike Makaab said everything regarding Mbule’s future will be clearer by May, with the feeling being that he will leave SuperSport at the end of the season.

Makaab has now told Soccer Laduma that he believes the player can earn himself move at the end of the season.

“There’s little doubt in my mind, with Mbule really working hard for the next three or four months, he can get a move. He is a professional footballer, he has to do that, irrespective of his disappointment. For his own sake and for his image, because other clubs will look at him and think this young man wanted the move, it did not happen, but look at the fire he is producing for his football club,” Makaab told the Siya crew.

“Then I have no doubt in my mind, that before the end of the season a deal will be done for Mbule to move on. He understands that and he is on board. After my talk with him, I would be very surprised if Sipho does not really show his talent over the next four months at SuperSport.”

Could doors open for Mbule in Europe?

In a recent interview, the player’s representative also made a bold prediction that Mbule could even earn interest from overseas.

“His desire is to make a move to further his career,” he said on Gagasi FM.

“He wants a move but he’s prepared to role his sleeves up and work his socks off for the next part of the season.

“He understands that he’s going to have to really work hard and show those people that have faith in him that he’s going to be the next big thing in South African football.

“I’m absolutely confident that we’re going to see a Sipho Mbule in the next three to four months that is going to set this league alight and it wouldn’t surprise me if we wouldn’t open the doors in Europe for him.”
