The goalkeeping problem at Mamelodi Sundowns is evident as the team is going into the last six games of the season in the Absa Premiership and the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup respectively.
The Brazilians are second on the log with the same number of points as leaders, Kaizer Chiefs, going into this week’s games.
The Chloorkop outfit has a chance to win the Nedbank Cup if Pitso Mosimane and his team can go all the way, starting with the game against Orlando Pirates in the last eight of the competition.
However, there could be problems along the way as the team is hampered by injuries at a crucial stage of the season.
The latest injury to Wayne Sandilands is serious and could leave the team’s goalkeeping department vulnerable if something else happens to the other keepers at the club.
Sundowns has Kennedy Mweene and Thela Ngobeni to choose the number one from at the moment.
Glenn Verbauwhede is still working his way back to full fitness, after the Achiles tendon operation he had earlier this season.
Why didn’t our team see this coming? The decision to loan Denis Onyango to Wits at the beginning of the season was a mistake. His move to Braamfontein will not benefit us in anyway as he is not playing at Wits.
