Themba Zwane looking to score more goals for Mamelodi Sundowns
In a press release sent by SplashPR to Briefly News, the Tembisa-born creative attacker says he faced challenges as a footballer but he knows tough people last. Zwane said:
“See improvement on all my stats, minutes on pitch, assists and goals. I know I’m talented, but I work super hard at my game. I push myself to be better every day, but more importantly, I like winning. I have learned that tough times don’t last, but tough people do.
"So, I try to keep myself informed of what’s happening around me, our country and the world at large. I remain positive and hope for the best. The unbelievable team spirit in camp among players. The great support we get from the technical team, president and chairman.
"More importantly, the feeling we get knowing our fans, Yellow Nation are always behind us makes a huge difference.”

Zwane netted 13 goals and provided five assists out of 34 matches across all competitions last season and describes success as two-fold. He added:
“Success for me is two-fold: Being able to enjoy, compete and stay on top of my game in this competitive league for so many years. Winning silverware for the team and our beloved fans makes all the difference.
"Being part of the Sundowns family, competing in the Club World Cup, winning the CAF CL league and eventually winning the PSL Footballer of the Season, show that I contributed positively to the game.
"The environment at Sundowns instils the winning mentality and this resonates with my beliefs, which makes winning a habit. I think it’s a nice design in traditional team colours with bold African patterns. But more importantly, for players, it’s very comfortable.”

“It is very similar. We don’t have a lot of time but the boys have been doing really well. Maybe it will be a work in progress in the first couple of weeks in the season, but if we can get into the decent start and we are there, we could be up there challenging for titles.”
