Mamelodi Sundowns

Mweene Geared For Chiefs Showdown

There will be a big showdown at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium this afternoon and Kennedy Mweene is ready to step up in the absence of Mamelodi Sundowns’ number one.

Sundowns will host Kaizer Chiefs in Pretoria today in a top of the table Absa Premiership clash, with the Brazilians able clinch the number one spot should they secure maximum points against their Gauteng rivals.

Masandawana will be without their number one shot-stopper Denis Onyango, as confirmed this week, after the club released the player for personal reasons.

However, Mweene will be raring to go after keeping a clean sheet in Sundowns’ previous Absa Premiership clash.

“It’s unfortunate that Denis lost his father,” Mweene said on Sundowns’ official website.

“But at the end of the day the team has to continue to play. I think I have to put some minutes in my legs, but it is not about me but about Sundowns.”

“I didn’t do too much against Highlands, but when I was called on I did very little. As a goalkeeper you always have to be ready because you never know when your time could come. A goalkeeper doesn’t really need match fitness,” he added.
