    More competition for Mweene at Sundowns

    Kennedy Mweene is staying on at Mamelodi Sundowns but has received more competition for the number one shirt with the 10-time South African champions.

    The Zambian number one has been with the CAF Champions League titleholders since June,2013 when he initially joined them on a three-year deal after six seasons at Free State Stars.

    But Mweene has over the last two seasons struggled to hold down a spot in the starting XI that he has lost Uganda goalkeeper Denis Onyango.

    And now, Mweene has added competition with the arrival of another high-profile African number one following the arrival of Ghana first choice Razak Brimah.

    Brimah replaces South African Wayne Sandilands who was not offered a contract extension and has since left Pretoria and moved down the road to Johannesburg and joined Orlando Pirates.

    “I have been number one for the Black Stars for four to five years now. You know the Black Stars, we are the best in Africa, and so it’s not easy to be number one in the national team,” Brimah told Kickoff.com.

    “Here [at Sundowns] all the goalkeepers are in their national teams, so that’s good for the club and it’s good for the goalkeepers because there will be a lot of challenges. I am here so that I can play so that I can still be number one in the national side.”

    Please make sure we beat Ethiopia. They had frustrated us in South Africa a number of years ago. Don’t play them with kid gloves on!
