Zwane: 'Very happy' to be nominated for awards

Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Themba Zwane feels his nomination for several end-of-season awards is just rewards for all his hard work in the 2018/19 season.

The 29-year-old played a crucial role in his side's successful Premiership title defence, and his performances have most certainly not gone unnoticed.

"It makes me very happy," Zwane said, as quoted by KickOff. "I always wanted to see myself there and now it's happening.

"It shows that there is good a job that I am doing throughout the season and so I'm happy for myself.

"I would also like to thank my teammates. I was not going to do it alone. They are always there for me," Zwane concluded.
