Sono trying to get his son overseas


Sono Jnr, who can play as a winger or attacking midfielder, has been with Cosmos for over 10 years since his youth days and, like his older brother Bamuza, there’s been pressure to do what their father Jomo did during his playing days

Sono senior, though, feels there’s nobody who can do what he did during his heyday, so it’s better for his youngest son to go elsewhere to create his own identity and legacy. 

“We are trying. We think he is under tremendous pressure here. I believe he can play, but Jomo’s name is putting so much pressure on him. He has been playing well, but I prefer him to move out of the country and maybe he can get his own identity and be himself, not every time when people see him they say ‘he does not play like his dad’. 

“In all honesty nobody will play like his dad in this country, nobody. We can send him anywhere, even Libya,” ‘Mjomane’ joked.

Cosmos, meanwhile, will begin their Nedbank Cup campaign against Baroka FC on Tuesday.
