Zwane has been working with the club’s Multichoice Diski Challenge (MDC) side and has done a pretty good job preparing the young players for first team football. Developing players is his passion.

"I don't want to rush into the senior team, I just want to focus on the development side and make sure the country produces top footballers from a young age, I'm still very happy in the youth set up," Zwane said.

Zwane is in support of the growth of the MDC competition, which will see the clubs playing each other twice as compared to once in previous years.

"The expanding of MDC will make a huge impact. I felt at some point it was robbing those young players an opportunity, [because] 15 games was not enough for them. I think we should commend the Premier Soccer League for changing the strategy and for Multichoice for investing in the game."

"It’s good for the country. I think it should've been implemented a long time ago, but sometimes finances play a huge role in our development. I'm happy because this competition has produced so much talent and now we need to make sure players are being coached by well qualified coaches. We need qualified coaches so we can produce top players."
