Erwin Saavedra arrived at Chloorkop amidst much fanfare, with his hefty transfer fee reflecting Mamelodi Sundowns’ strong desire to have him on their squad. However, his time with the team has not gone as planned, evidenced by his sparse 10 appearances over two years. Saavedra’s former club, Bolivar, have shown interest in reuniting with him.
Bolivar’s coach, Flavio Robatto, confirmed ongoing discussions with Saavedra about a potential return, although other options are also being considered. The club holds an option to extend Saavedra’s stay for an additional two years, but insider sources suggest this is unlikely to come to fruition. Saavedra’s uncertain future seems to be leading him back to his former team as negotiations continue.
This potential move represents a significant shift from his time at Sundowns, where he struggled to make an impact, and could provide a fresh start for the midfielder.
