“I always play with the intention of winning, and I know that time is coming soon because we are heading in the right direction. I am sure we will definitely win some silverware in the coming seasons.”

The former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder says he is enjoying working under coach Micho Sredojevic, as well as his assistants Rhulani Mokwena and Benson Mhlongo.

“You need to adjust to playing under different coaches, and with coach micho along with coach Rhulani and coach Benson, it has been wonderful because of the environment they have created. We are putting in the hours at training and even before training, we do a lot of note-taking whereby you analyse yourself as well as the team and the opponents.”
