Sangweni: I am not leaving Sundowns for any reason

Sundowns’ midfielder Thamsanqa Sangweni still believes that he has a future at Mamelodi Sundowns despite lack of game time
Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Thamsanqa Sangweni has told that he is enjoying his time at Sundowns, despite the lack of game time since he joined from Amazulu at the beginning of the season.

Sangweni, a younger brother of Bafana Bafana defender Siyabonga Sangweni, believes that the team has been doing well, and the players have responded well to the coach’s tactics.

“Obviously, I am happy with the progress we have made so far. A lot of people didn’t believe Sundowns will improve but here we are,” said Sangweni.

“The whole team has been doing well. We have been supporting each other and I think the players have done exactly what the coach tells them to do,” he said.

Sangweni, who was selected to represent South Africa while at Amazulu, revealed that his future lies with Sundowns, and that he never considered leaving the Chloorkop-based outfit, even though he has hasn’t been playing regularly.

“I got injured while Johan Neeskens was still our coach, and other players had to fill my position, and they have done well. My chance will come and I will grab it with both hands,” added Thami Sangweni.  

“I am not leaving Sundowns for any reason. I knew when I signed for them that it was going to be difficult to break into the starting eleven, but this is my first season here and I still have a future at Sundowns,” concluded Sangweni.

Mamelodi Sundowns have improved tremendously under Pitso Mosimane, and find themselves in the top eight for the first time this season after an impressive 3-0 win over Maritzburg United last Friday.
