Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns legend John Tlale has advised goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene to leave the club at the end of the season to find regular game time.

The Zambia international has fallen down the pecking order at the Brazilians after being the first-choice goalkeeper for the last three seasons.

The 31-year-old has lost his regular position in the starting line-up to Uganda international Denis Onyango.

"Kennedy needs to play regularly at his age and I think his situation at Sundowns is not helping his career," Tlale told Goal website.

"He is still a quality goalkeeper and he will have to make a decision soon as lack of game time will also cost him a place with his national team [Zambia] - where he has been the first choice for a long time.

"I think Pitso and the players now trust Dennis more than any goalkeeper at the club, so it will be very difficult for anyone to take that position away from the Ugandan.

"For me I think Kennedy's career at Sundowns is finished based on the performance of Onyango this season, having won Sundowns the Telkom Knockout and continuing to do well in goals."
