"Thank You gentlemen for the contribution you have given the club and the joy you have brought to the Yellow Nation!" said Sundowns in a club statement.

“Anthony Laffor and Wayne Arendse joined Mamelodi Sundowns in 2012 from SuperSport United and Santos respectively,” said the club in a statement on Friday.

“The duo have played a vital role over the past eight years at the Brazilians.

“‘Snoti’ as he is known in the football circles is known best for mesmerising defenders and coming off the bench to score those clutch moment goals.

“Wayne, on the other hand, has been a rock-solid member of the defence. His leadership from the back has seen him don the captain’s armband on occasion and his aerial ability made him an offensive threat in the opponent’s box.

“Thank You gentlemen for the contribution you have given the club and the joy you have brought to the Yellow Nation!”

Laffor and Arendse were both part of Pitso Mosimane’s Sundowns team that won five league titles in seven seasons from 2013-2020.

While Laffor, now 35, made just one appearance for Sundowns in the whole of last season, but Arendse still played over ten league games, and even scored in Masandawana’s run to the Nedbank Cup title, as they completed a domestic treble.

Another raft of  Sundowns signings, however, has seen the club decide to part company with the pair, who are now free agents.
