Sundowns paid Kaizer Chiefs millions for George Lebese

New Mamelodi Sundowns signing George Lebese was bought from Kaizer Chiefs for R3.5-million, a source has revealed.

Both clubs did not disclose the figure, as is the norm in South African football, but our well-placed informant told Sunday World that Amakhosi pocketed a few millions after agreeing to part ways with the Mamelodi-born winger.

"Chiefs were not budging. So it was up to Sundowns to act and they were pressed for time because they had to register three more players for the [CAF] Champions League, including George," the source disclosed.
