Johannesburg - Following a top-notch 2014/15 Absa premiership campaign, Kaizer Chiefs winger Mandla Masango believes he has finally come of age after getting regular game time for the first time since joining the club in 2008.
The Kwaggafontein-born midfielder has enjoyed the best season of his career, bagging nine goals in all competitions.
The 25-year-old said the current season was the best campaign of his career after earlier being linked in free transfer deals.
‘’Bullet’’ also revealed his ambitions to contribute further to Amakhosi’s success by promising that the South African football fraternity will see the best of him next season.
“I think there is more to come from me, this is not the end,” said Masango.
“I was pleased with my contribution to the team’s achievements this season.
“I always wanted to be part of the winning team and you are always remembered for being part of a team that broke records and win the championship.
“When you finish second in any race, people don’t remember that.
“I was playing with intelligent players around me and all my team-mates understand me and they made my game much easier.
“Everything started from the training sessions at the beginning of the season and also working hard helped a lot.
“Again I must thank my family, the technical team, my team-mates and not forgetting the supporters for being there for me during my difficult times.
“Now I can proudly say that my storms are over.”
Masango’s heroics in the past season earned him a nomination for the MTN8 last man standing accolade for which he is competing with fellow team-mates George Maluleka and Tefu Mashamaite.
The awards ceremony will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre on Sunday.
