Cape Town - Despite
a severe lack of playing time since moving to Mamelodi Sundowns, Mame Niang is
not becoming despondent, according to his agent Steve Kapeluschnik.

The striker made a big money move to the Brazilians from
SuperSport United at the beginning of the season, but has been unable to secure
a regular place in the first team.
No-one would begrudge the striker for being disappointed
with his current situation, seeing as he turned down the likes of Soweto giants
Orlando Pirates in favour of joining Downs.
The Senegalese striker has not managed to be more than a
bit-part player this season, but he is still keen to prove himself at Sundowns.
"He is happy at the club, you know," Kapeluschnik
"Yes, he has not played a lot as much as he would've
liked to but that's how it goes when you are playing for Sundowns, you have to
fight hard for your place in the team despite your obvious ability."
Niang was the Premiership's top goal scorer in the 2005/06
season, and Kapeluschnik believes his client can still add value to the club.
"He is keen to keep fighting for his place in the team
and has not once murmured of his lack of game-time," he said.
"He believes he still has a lot to offer the club and
we share the same sentiment."
