Maboe joined Sundowns in August from Maritzburg United and hit the ground running, establishing himself as a regular despite the fact that there were those doubting that he’d play week in and out at the club.

Zwane, meanwhile, is the more senior player and plays a key role in guiding the likes of Maboe on the pitch. Both players have been instrumental for Sundowns over the last few matches, combining to inspire the club to victories over Leones Vegetarianos and SuperSport United. 

“With regard to the combination of me and Maboe, I think we are coming alright and we are starting to understand one another and we complement each other. Obviously I still need to push more. Yes, I played well, but I can’t say that everything is okay. There’s a lot that needs to be improved; each and every department I need to improve. So I need to work hard,” the Bafana Bafana international said. 

“It’s very important to be consistent and play every game here in the team because we have quality players. So whevever you get a chance you need to perform. If you perform obviously you book your ticket into the national team and maintain your position there.”

Zwane praised the Sundowns technical team for managing the squad well during a hectic period. Sundowns play Baroka FC at Lucas Moripe Stadium tonight, and then travel to Egypt to face Libyan side Al Ahly Benghazi in the CAF Champions League this weekend. 

“We are coping well. We have a good technical team and they are managing us very well. We have good numbers; we have enough depth to play all these games.”
