Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands wants to play

Posted: 17 February 2014 Time: 19:09

While Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands may have lost his first team position to Kennedy Mweene at the beginning of the season, this has not deflated his spirit as he intends to fight hard to reclaim his place.

The Brazilians massive investment in new signings during the off seasons has affected a number of players who are finding it difficult to command a regular place within coach Pitso Mosimane’s first eleven.

The club’s acquisition of Mweene from Free State Stars means that Sandilands now has to compete with the one of the best goalkeepers in Africa for a regular place.

An African Cup of Nations winner with Zambia, Mweene joined Sundowns after making 238 League starts for Free State Stars.

Apart from his many international caps with the Zambia national team, Mweene also has the ability of converting penalties (he scored 14 League goals from the spot during his stint with Free State Stars) and this gives Mosimane additional options during matches.

However, Sandilands – who can easily command a regular place in several teams playing in the topflight – has not lost hope of bouncing back into the team.

Mamelodi Sundowns spokesperson Kabelo Mosito tells KickOff.com that the player is working hard to reclaim his position.

“Wayne is a very professional players and he has taken his situation in a very professional way,” Mosito says.

“He is working hard to regain his position. This has created healthy competition between him and Kennedy.

“Remember that just a season ago, Wayne was the first choice goalkeeper so he has the ability to achieve this,” Mosito adds.

Competing for the Sundowns number one jersey has not soiled the relationship between the two players.

“Wayne and Kennedy get on very well. They are good friends on and off the pitch,” Mosito says.

Wayne, you were too complacent and you lost your no 1 spot, especially after being scored way before the half way line. Work hard baba and prove to yourself, the coach, team and supporters that you still have what it takes. It's all up to you!

If I were you I should have approached Golden Arrows during open window and ask Downs to loan me,Manto should 'nt have ask A Bartman to come back from retirement and play. I do not see you playing the single game this season you will be eating the ice-cubes on the bench whole season.
