Mamelodi Sundowns’ Themba ‘Mshishi’ Zwane has explained the reason for his unusual goal celebration saying that he does it for his friends back home.
The 27-year-old has experienced a riveting 2016/17 season under the mentorship of Head Coach, Pitso Mosimane, as the Brazilians just missed out on clinching the Absa Premiership league title.
Zwane has scored nine goals in all domestic competitions for Sundowns in the 20161/7 campaign and when hitting the back of the net, the player celebrates in a rather unusual way with his teammates and in particular Percy Tau.

Mshishi has since revealed to Soccer Laduma the reason for his celebration by saying, “Ha, ha, ha, that’s a random kasi celebration, man. We call it the ‘Zombie dance’ and my boys from ekasi always want to see me do it whenever I score.”
“I do it for my boys and they say since I started celebrating with that dance I have been scoring more regularly. So they say I mustn’t stop doing it. You know how it is in the townships, people just create their own things out of nowhere and that’s exactly what happened with this dance,” Zwane said in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma.
