Cape Town - Experienced Mamelodi Sundowns
goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene believes those not getting game-time for the
Brazilians must not become disheartened and lose hope.
Sundowns have a bulging squad loaded with quality and a number of
players have been consigned to the bench over the course of the season.
The likes of Aubrey Ngoma, Oupa Manyisa, Thela Nobeni, Ali Meza and
Jeremy Brockie are all seemingly frozen out at the moment at Chloorkop.
Rotting away on the sidelines was not for George Lebese who joined SuperSport United on loan in the January transfer window.
Nonetheless, Mweene, who plays second string to Denis Onyango in goal
for the 2016 African champions, urged his teammates to not give up.
He told the Sowetan: "I always tell them that they must continue working hard and their chance will come.
"With the number of games we play at Sundowns, there is no way that the same players can play every week.
"So when their chance comes, they must take it. Attitude is very
important because whether they play you or not, you must train the same.
"The most dangerous thing for players is when they are not training
well because when they start playing, then they will not perform.
"I don't believe in this thing of match fitness. If a player trains
well, then there can be no issues about match fitness. When you get your
chance to play, at least give a good performance for 45 minutes."
