Zwane’s Big Decision: Sundowns? Chiefs? Abroad?

Themba Zwane: Mamelodi Sundowns? Kaizer Chiefs? Elsewhere?

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 04, 2017 03:13 PM
Themba Zwane has only nine months left on his contract with Mamelodi Sundowns, and at 27-years-old he has a big choice to make in terms of his career.
 
 
The Bafana Bafana international has transformed from a fringe player at Chloorkop to being one of Pitso Mosimane’s prized possessions, and the club is known to be very keen on making sure that they don’t lose one of their star attackers.
 
However, aside from Sundowns’ interest in keeping him, it is also believed that there is interest from Absa Premiership rivals, Kaizer Chiefs, as well as eyes watching him from outside of South Africa.
 
Zwane’s performances on the continent and in international games have made him a desirable purchase for clubs wishing to sign him, and the fact that he will be available as a free agent at the end of the season makes him even more of a target.
 
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the former Mpumalanga Black Aces man has a decision to make. Staying at Sundowns would be the easy option. They’re the African champions and he’s formed good partnerships there. Mosimane also really likes him.
 
Chiefs would be a risk given their current form, but the fame and fortune that comes with donning the gold and black jersey – as well as the prospect of a new challenge, may be tempting.  
 
 
Looking into his options overseas is also an option, but only if playing abroad is something that Zwane himself wants to pursue. At 27, now is probably his last chance.
 
The Siya crew spoke an agent, who spoke anonymously about the decision that the Bafana attacker will have to make.
 
They said, “At the age of 27, this could possibly be the last opportunity for Themba Zwane to land himself a move overseas, so if he does want to pursue this option in his career, then now would be the perfect time. Alternatively, he could cash in… If he sees out his contract and is able to move on a free, he will be aware that clubs would not need to pay any transfer fee for his services, so he could potentially explore a big-money move locally by using the fact that they won’t need to pay any transfer fee to land him.
 
“I am sure that any local team here in South Africa would love to bolster their squad with a player of Zwane’s calibre, so he would be spoilt for choice really. So ultimately it just boils down to his own ambitions and where he would like to be playing his football next season.”

This publication is hellbent on scouting free agents for the maize club! Who in their right frame of mind would leave the African champions n go to a street team where u play for maize, beers n Swazi cows? This is cheap journalism at its best!

Everybody knows that Chiefs doesn't buy quality but quantity. They don't have a big budget like before when they could manage to bring the best players to Naturena unless they are free agents.

I would like to see Mshishi extending his stay with us, he is a fantastic player who is maturing with age.The onus is on Sundowns to step up to the plate and ensure that the guy is happy.
