coach Pitso Mosimane, the ambition and drive that he has to succeed really
motivates and excites me. I can't wait to start playing for him.

about wanting to win the Champions League again, it gives you a good buzz. I
would really like to have a good shot at that."

goals and my personal goals," he continued.

honour to be putting on the yellow shirt of Mamelodi Sundowns. There's no

like it dragged on forever, at some stage you wonder if the move was going to
come. I know that it's
going to be tough to crack into the side, there is a lot of depth and there are
a lot of great players in the Sundowns side. But I believe in my ability and I
will complement the team really well."
