Grant Margeman is relishing the chance to make an impact at Mamelodi Sundowns next season following his move from Ajax Cape Town.
The 21-year-old midfielder is set to join the Brazilians from Ajax Cape Town at the end of the season.
The South African U23 international has been a key member for the Urban Warriors this season and managed to score three goals in the GladAfrica Championship in Ajax’s push to gain promotion back to the Absa Premiership.
Although Margeman insists that he is focused on Ajax at the moment, he is looking forward to breaking into the Sundowns first team and helping them win trophies on a domestic and continental front.
‘I’m happy to join a club as big as Sundowns, but my focus, for now, is at Ajax Cape Town,’ Margeman told IOL.
‘Sundowns is a big team in South Africa. They compete in Africa and they are winning titles. We’ve also seen players moving from Sundowns to overseas.
‘That’s what I want to achieve as a player. I want to win titles, compete in Africa, play for the national team and go overseas.
‘I believe in my ability. I feel I made the right choice by joining Sundowns. Yes, there will be those who doubt that I can make it at Sundowns or I’m going to kill my career there. But that won’t distract me.
‘I will go there, work hard and compete for my place.’
Margeman is now following in the footsteps of Keagan Dolly, Rivaldo Coetzee and Mosa Lebusa in making the switch from Ajax to Sundowns.
‘Keagan Dolly did well when he left Ajax Cape Town and joined Sundowns. Rivaldo [Coetzee] was also doing well until he got injured. Mosa Lebusa is from Ajax and is doing well at Sundowns. Those players makes me believe that I can also make it,’ he added.
