Sundowns’ Keeper Dilemma

With the signing of Kennedy Mweene, Mamelodi Sundowns have taken their goalkeeper count to five, begging the question of what they are going to do with them all.

Mweene, the number one for Zambia, his national team, has been a regular between the sticks for Free State Stars for a number of years and will not be keen to drop to a place on the sidelines.

Meanwhile Wayne Sandilands, South Africa’s current second choice goalkeeper, has been Downs’ keeper for a number of years and will no doubt feel hard done by if he is relegated to the bench.

Glenn Verbauwhede, a recent Belgian signing, is said to have impressed the Brazilians’ technical staff in training so far and no doubt came to Chloorkop in search of first team football.

Another shot-stopper at the club is Thela Ngobeni, a keeper once rated as one of the most exciting young talents in the country. It seems highly unlikely that Ngobeni will be able to break into Pitso Mosimane’s first team next year, although the club decided to exercise the year long option on his contract.

Denis Onyango also finds himself in a similar situation having had his contract extended despite interest coming from elsewhere and him having little chance of playing for Sundowns.

It looks as though Mosimane may well have a difficult tightrope to walk next season, if he is to keep all of his contracted goalkeepers happy at the club.
