Mushekwi dreams big for 2011/12

The new season might be kicking off only next month but Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Nyasha Mushwekwi is already dreaming of winning titles with the team next season.

The Zimbabwean striker is fresh from a season of mixed fortunes with Downs, who finished fourth in the 16-team Absa Premiership.

On a personal note, Mushekwi had a commendable debut season in the Absa Premiership, scoring 14 goals to finish joint-second behind countryman, Knowledge Musona of Kaizer Chiefs.

“I was happy with my contribution to the team but personal milestones mean very little when the team did not fulfill its mandate. I am delighted that I managed to settle with my team mates and I came to a good understanding with most of them, which showed on the field as they supplied me with clinical passes,” said Mushekwi in an interview from Harare where he is enjoying his off-season break.

The former Caps United marksman longs for success at the club and wants to play a role in that objective.

“One of the reasons I signed for Sundowns is because they have big ambitions and want to be the best. As a player that is the kind of team you want to be with as it will give you the satisfaction of winning because nothing beats that feeling.”

The giant striker was a consistent performer for Sundowns last season. Mostly coming from the bench, he showed an appetite for goals with his ground and aerial abilities. Injury however curtailed his progress.

His presence will be key to inspiring the former league champions when the new season kicks off in July with the cash-rich MTN 8.

Downs face Bloemfontein Celtic, who finished fifth, at a date the Premier Soccer league is yet to confirm. The winner of the annual competition will pocket a cool R8 million.
