Goalkeeper coach Alex Heredia describes possible Ronwen Williams move to Mamelodi Sundowns as suicide

Ronwen Williams moving from SuperSport United to Mamelodi Sundowns would not be a good career move.

As reported by Sports Brief, this is according to legendary goalkeeper coach Alex Heredia. The Argentinian is well travelled in South Africa, having served in this role at Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana.

Williams has been pushing for a move from Matsatsantsa to the cross-town rivals as he chases much-desired silverware. However, he'd have to attempt dislodging Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene, Reyaad Pieterse and Ricardo Goss for the starting spot.
