Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns forward Themba Zwane says he wants to be the best player in the Absa Premiership in 2018/19 and he would like score the most goals as well.

Zwane is amongst the more experienced members of the Sundowns squad having joined them from Vodacom League outfit Vardos FC in 2011.

In 2017/18 he scored six goals in 27 appearances although his numbers were slightly lower than the previous campaign where he hit eight strikes in 26 showings for the Premiership champions.

As such, the 28-year-old is determined to win everything possible as an individual in the new season despite facing some stiff competition in Downs' ranks.

He told Kickoff: "I obviously have to set goals, and even last season I did so but they were not achieved. So, this season I need to put in more effort.

"I want to be nominated for, maybe, Player of the Season, Midfielder of the Season or Top Goal Scorer, those are the things that I'd like to achieve this coming season.

"For me the competition is nice because it always keeps me on my toes. Whenever I get a chance, I have to make sure that I make use of it.

"I think it's better to have strong competition than to play where there is no competition, because obviously you'll relax as a player.

"But if you know your place is not guaranteed you will always work harder, and if you don't play you will always do extra work to be ready for your chance when it comes."
