Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Themba Zwane is enjoying a stellar season for his club but is still not satisfied with his contribution on the field.

Zwane was in superb form as Masandawana completely destroyed Egyptian giants Al Ahly 5-0 in the first-leg of the Caf Champions League quarterfinal last weekend.

The Bafana Bafana international is one of the leading scorers in the continental tournament this campaign with six strikes but believes he should be contributing more goals.

In quotes published on Kickoff, Zwane said: "I think my confidence is high whenever we play in the CAF Champions League, but for me, I must do more because normally I get three or four chances but only manage to get one.

"I feel for me I must get two or three goals [in a match]."

Zwane also revealed how he has embraced a leadership role at the Tshwane club.

The midfielder continued: "I need to take responsibility.

"Obviously I am a senior player now, I need to take charge whenever I am on the field of play and try to help (regular captain) Hlompho [Kekana]."
