Mngcwango: Big teams want me

Cape Town - Polokwane City striker Thobani Mncwango has revealed interest from big teams in the Premiership, following a successful campaign with Rise and Shine.

The 28-year-old forward finished as the league's second top goalscorer, with 13 goals in 28 appearances for City, as he ended the season just one goal behind top scorer Collins Mbesuma to help the Limpopo-based side secure their top-flight status.

His impressive showing at club level has earned him a call-up to the senior national team, ahead of Bafana Bafana's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Gambia next month.

"When you are doing well the so-called big teams will want you," he told reporters.

"They want me and I think there will be more because I am in the national team. I can't mention the teams. I am still contracted to Polokwane City.

"I am happy to be called up. But I am not surprised because if you are doing well, you are bound to be called up. At last they have called me up and I am happy.

"I am ready because of the form I am in."
