No Let-up For Evergreen Mweene

How long does Kennedy Mweene think he will remain a keeper? Find out by clicking on the podcast player below!

Mamelodi Sundowns will take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the final of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday. 

Kennedy Mweene will vie for a starting place with fit-again Denis Onyango as he finished the Absa Premiership season in fine form, conceding just once in five matches as the Ugandan gloveman battled with a quad injury.

Mweene has been a stalwart of the African game for almost two decades and recently claimed his fifth South African league title, making him one of the most decorated players in the country.

At the age of 36, some might be thinking of winding down, but as he tells The COSAFA Show, he believes he still has more to give.

“They say with goalkeepers, the older you get, the wiser you get. For me, it is about the love of the game. But you must also listen to your body, when it says it is tired, then you have to make a decision,” Mweene says.

In his interview, Mweene compares himself James Chamanga, the top-scorer in Zambia at 40 years old, and states how long he believes he can remain an active footballer.

As for his future with the Zambia national team, Mweene is less committal.

“We’ll see, I have to make a decision. But at the moment I am a bit busy. There are a lot of youngsters coming to the fore and I have been with the national team since 2004. I have been up and down in Africa with Sundowns.

“I haven’t had time for my family, but at the end of the day when the country calls … look, I won’t say I will not play for the national team, but at the moment I am not part of the side.”
