Even though he only featured twice in the past season, Mohomi says it was a dream come true to get his hands on the silverware – the first domestic trophy in his career.

“The feeling is something I can’t even describe at the moment, I don’t have words for it. I came to Sundowns to win titles and winning the league is the most important thing. I am happy that I was part of the squad that won it. I am grateful,” Mohomi, who grew up as a Kaizer Chiefs supporter, tells KickOff.com.

“I won’t lie, I grew up as a Chiefs supporter, but since Sundowns is a team from the township they always caught my eye and I have wanted to be part of the team. It’s the eighth time Sundowns wins the league and I am happy to be part of that history.”
