Zwane dreams of overseas move

Mamelodi Sundowns man Themba Zwane

Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Themba Zwane revealed that he’d like to play overseas, in addition to saying that he draws inspiration from Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

Masandawana will look to overturn a 2-1 scoreline when they face Tunisian outfit Esperance on Wednesday night, and despite the large task ahead of them, ‘Mshishi’ is confident that his side can garner victory, citing Bafana Bafana’s victory against Nigeria as a source of inspiration.

The 27-year-old was unfortunate not to get on to the scoresheet for his country after striking the bar twice in their 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations qualifier against The Super Eagles.

”My dream is to earn a move abroad. I want to play in one of the best leagues of this world,” he told IOL.

”Eden Hazard is one of the players who inspires me to continue working on my game. I always want to get better, always. That’s why I always leave it all out on the pitch.

”It doesn’t matter whether I’m playing for Bafana or my home team Sundowns. I always push to give it my best. That’s why I was so disappointed when I struck the woodwork.

”Upon our arrival at the airport there in Nigeria, some of the locals told us that we must forget about the possibility of beating their senior national team, especially at home. They told us that we were going to lose that encounter.

”That alone was the motivation for us to do well in that match. We also had a proper game plan. The coach told us to always maintain shape at the back and catch them on the counter. And we did that pretty well,” he concluded.

The two sides face off on Wednesday at the Stade Olympique De Rades, with kickoff set for 23:00.
