Having attracted the interest from some of the biggest teams in the country, Stellenbosch FC utility player Zitha Kwinika has commented on his readiness to make the step up.
Kwinika has for the last five seasons, been one of the most consistent players in Mzansi.
Since the 2017/18 season, the 28-year-old has consistently gone on to feature in 20 or more appearances in every single campaign, a trend that he has kept up this season.
As reported by the Siya crew, Kwinika’s valuable contribution has not gone unnoticed, with his former team Kaizer Chiefs understood to be among those interested in his services.
Now, the former Bidvest Wits defender has commented on whether he is up for the challenge of featuring for the team if they come calling for his services, while reiterating his commitment to Stellies, who recently activated the option in his contract.
“In this instance, I put something to you. I've been ready! I played for Wits. They were a big team and so was Chippa, they are in the big league. So, it shows that if I'm competing with those people, then I’m ready if that's the case,” Kwinika recently told the Siya crew.
“But for me to stand up with pride and confidence, then I need to win things at Stellenbosch and say I need to move here. I've got everything I need to go to a bigger challenge - but how do I say I want a bigger challenge when at Stellenbosch I'm just playing.
“So, my motivation for me is to do well where I am so that I can have the power to say no, now I need something you understand? Where I stand now, I don’t have powers to say no, I deserve to go there.
“If I deserve to go there, they will come ask me. What did you win? I've got nothing! So, what's pushing me is to try to achieve what I can achieve at Stellenbosch. Then I can come back and say there’s improvement in my game. But trust me, if any challenge comes to me on any given day, I'll be ready because I've proven for the past five years, six years, I've been playing in this league and I'm playing against those people, so I don't see anything stopping me from playing for any other team in this country.”
