Mamelodi Sundowns

Why This Is Zwane’s Historical Season With Sundowns

Regardless of whether or not Mamelodi Sundowns end up Absa Premiership champions, this season will go down in Themba Zwane’s personal history books.

Zwane has been an instrumental part of Sundowns’ success since returning from his loan stint with Mpumalanga Black Aces back in June 2014.

The 30-year-old playmaker has gone on to lift three Absa Premiership titles, a CAF Champions League trophy, the CAF Super Cup, two Telkom Knockout trophies and a Nedbank Cup with the Brazilians and it is evident that he will continue to play an integral role to their future success.

However, this season in particular, has already been one for the books for Zwane with Sundowns, due to it being his highest-scoring league campaign ever.

The 30-year-old has scored nine Absa Premiership goals so far this season, a big improvement from last campaign, where he only managed four goals, but now he is well on his way to approaching double figures before the end of the campaign.

This season, Zwane has scored against Bloemfontein Celtic, Black Leopards, AmaZulu FC (two goals in one match), Chippa United, twice against SuperSport United (home and away) and twice against Stellenbosch FC (home and away).

His key moments include his winning goal against Celtic at the start of the season and against Stellenbosch in their last Absa Premiership fixture back in March this year, where Sundowns won 1-0.

The player is also the leading goalscorer for the Brazilians this season, following in second place is Sibusiso Vilakazi with five goals.

It seems that Zwane may be hitting peak form for the Brazilians this year, while also maintaining his spot in the South African national team set-up. 

Now it remains to be seen whether, once the domestic season resumes, Zwane will continue finding the back of the net and set a higher record for himself.
