Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Promise Mkhuma is relishing the chance to ‘bring more trophies’ to the club after winning his first Absa Premiership title with the Brazilians.
The 20-year-old was promoted to the Sundowns first team after a number of impressive performances this season in the Multichoice Diski Challenge.
The junior international was also handed a five-year contract when his promotion to the senior team was confirmed earlier this year.
Mkhuma, who has featured five times for Sundowns under Pitso Mosimane this season, collected his first winner’s medal after the Brazilians clinched their third successive league title over the weekend.
‘I’d say I’m excited to win the championship with Mamelodi Sundowns on my first season since I’ve joined the club in December,’ Mkhuma told the club’s media team.
‘So, I’d say it’s a great feeling, I will also like to win the championship with this club. The gates are opening, I’m looking forward to bring more trophies to the club.
‘I’ll say the relationship with the senior guys … I spend most of the time with Tiyani Mabunda and Hlompho Kekana. They are the ones who have guided me during training.
‘So, they tell me how to do the right things and fix my mistakes, they calm me down during the games.’
Mkhuma went on to reveal what Sibusiso Vilakazi told him before their 2-2 draw with Maritzburg United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on 21 August.
‘The day we played against Maritzburg, I had a chat with Vila [Vilakazi] before the game. He said I must not be too scared to take them on,’ he added.
‘I must just play my game and don’t be scared of making mistakes, they are part of the game.
‘We always play PlayStation when we are together with the younger ones. We have always known each other from the academy, we always talk to one another because it’s easier than talking to the senior ones – we are free as youngsters.’
