Mosimane has plans for Sangweni at Sundowns

Despite the fact that Mamelodi Sundowns bought a number of new players this season, head coach Pitso Mosimane has made it clear that he has plans for Thamsanqa Sangweni

Thamsanqa, the younger brother of Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana defender Siyabonga Sangweni has not had much game time for the Brazilians, but Mosimane is not willing to let him go.

Speaking to the media in Durban, Mosimane said he has great plans for the 24-year old KwaZulu-Natal defensive midfielder.

“Sangweni is still our player and I am not willing to let him go. He is a bright boy and I am planning to use him this season. He had a great pre-season where he proved that he deserves to be in the squad and that is why we have not loaned him,” said Mosimane.

Although Sangweni has only made three appearances since last year when he joined the club, things have not been looking good for him, compared to his former club AmaZulu where he featured in 50 matches.

With Mosimane adding players to his squad, Sangweni might have to work extra hard to get his chance as the coach believes in having a big squad.

“I know the media has been criticizing us for buying many players. But the reality is that it helps to have a big squad so that when you face injuries you are able to use a plan B. For instance we have about seven players that are injured and imagine the stress we would be having had we no other players,” he said.
