There is no doubt that the departure of Kennedy Mweene from Free State Stars to Mamelodi Sundowns left a gap at the club. Now there is a new hope, writes Lunga Ntuli
Not only was Mweene an experienced international goalkeeper, but he held the arm-belt which contributed to the success of Free State Stars tight backline in the past.
Now, the club is placing their faith on new Ghanaian goalkeeper Daniel Agyei who is set take over as the number one goalkeeper. Agyei wants to make a name for himself in the Premier Soccer League, after having had a successful season in the Ghana Premier League whilst playing for Liberty Stars FC.

Adapting to the style of play that coach Steve Komphela is expecting will have to come soon, because the club needs to rediscover their form quick. Agyei has Ghana national under-23 squad experience which also proves his promising abilities.
Then there's his experience at under-20 level where he won both the 2009 African Youth Championship and the 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup. So, much is expected from him to step up in the PSL this season.
