Cape Town - Jabulani Shongwe admits it was difficult to establish himself at Sundowns and is relishing his more prominent role in the first team with Bidvest Wits.

The midfielder made the move to the Clever Boys from Tswane at the beginning of the season and revealed competition for places at the Brazilians meant he was not able to play regular football.

Since the move, the 25-year-old has become an integral part of the setup at Wits.

"At Sundowns, I was given a chance, but obviously the competition was stiff. Even now at Wits, it is stiff but they had more quality players who were sharing positions," Shongwe told Goal website.

"So it was hard, but I am grateful that when I moved to Wits I told myself that it's a new start and I have to keep on pushing.

"I am doing very well at the moment and I am happy that I am being chosen to play for the national team.

"I am grateful that I am part of the Bafana Bafana setup and I am doing well for Wits. That's a good thing that each and every player wants," he concluded.
