New Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Jody February has expressed his readiness to compete with Denis Onyango.
Jody returns to Sundowns after a year-long loan at Cape Umoya United. He was joined the Masandawana last year from Ajax Cape Town before he was sent on loan.
“My reasons for choosing Sundowns was to get better and to be the best like I said,” Jody told Goal in an interview.
“It’s [going to Sundowns] going to help me in the end with my game. I am going to compete with three of the best goalkeepers in South Africa.
“Two very very experienced AFCON goalkeepers, Kennedy Mweene has won the Afcon. Onyango is an international and has won the award for being the continent’s best.
“Reyaad [Pieterse] is a Bafana international, what more can you want as a younger keeper?
“Who to learn from other than from the best in Africa for quite some time? To me, it’s just like fine wine, it gets better, it will definitely help me.
“I definitely want to go there where I will be competing. As you know at Sundowns you play a lot of games and every year there must be silverware.
“That is also a good motive, to go to and win trophies and competing in Africa.”
