Mamelodi Sundowns striker Thokozani Sekotlong will work harder to get into the team

Posted: 30 January 2018 Time: 16:45

Mamelodi Sundowns striker Thokozani Sekotlong knows that he has to double his efforts at training to get into the starting line-up, following the arrival of Jeremy Brockie.

Sekotlong had a decent first half of the season after joining the club in August last year, scoring two goals in six appearances. He has, however, only featured once in 2018, in Sundowns’ 3-1 defeat to Soweto giants Orlando Pirates as a substitute.

With Brockie now in the team, as well as Uruguayan Gaston Sirino who can play upfront, Sekotlong will have to work even harder to ensure he does not become a player who watches Sundowns games from the suites at the stadium.

“Definitely. They are marquee signings and he [Brockie] score goals, so obviously competition is tough in the team,” Sekotlong tells

“When you get a chance in the team then you need to make sure you take it. The competition in the team is healthy, keeps everybody on their toes.”

Sekotlong says he was happy with his performances in the first half of the season, considering he did not get too many opportunities. In the matches he played, the former University of Pretoria striker showed that he can score goals for the team. But with the Nedbank Cup and CAF Champions League coming up, he could get more chances to prove his worth.

“I think it [the first half of the season] was good enough. It was not too bad. I started five games and scored two, which is not too bad when you look at the time I have.”

Sekotlong will be hoping to get an opportunity to play when Sundowns take on title rivals Cape Town City in the Mother City on Friday.
