Onyango Advises Fellow Sundowns Goalkeepers

Denis Onyango has advised fellow Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeepers Jody February and Ricardo Goss.

Onyango has been Sundowns first choice but believes that the youngsters will soon take over if they work hard.

While Goss has made five appearances, Jody is yet to make a debut.

“We all didn’t come to Sundowns and start playing immediately. Jody and Goss have brought in something different in the team,” Onyango is quoted by Sowetan.

“We believe they have the quality and where they are coming from they were winning. Goss is one for the future for Bafana Bafana and I believe that if he gets more game time, he will eventually get the No 1 spot.

“Jody has a future with Sundowns and the national team as well. For me, to be there, they are pushing me to work hard and them to work hard because we can’t give it to them on a silver plate.”

He stated that the duo have pushed him to becoming the best goalkeeper and credited his 15 clean sheets to a “fantastic job” done by the goalkeeping department.

Onyango, together with teammate Hlompo Kekana, have won the most league titles in PSL history – 8.

The former Uganda Cranes captain wants 10 before hanging his boots.

“The moment I stop believing that I can still win, that would be the end of my career, but I need to keep going. There are never enough trophies. I have never seen anyone saying my trophies are enough, no,” the 2016 African Footballer of the year based in Africa noted.

“I need to keep going. That’s what drives me. My eighth league title, and to be sharing it with Hlompho Kekana, is great. I saw him coming from Black Leopards and become a captain at Sundowns, it’s amazing.

“Daine Klate was the most decorated player and we managed to beat that. We got to eight medals and we want to make it 10, Kekana and I. It’s a challenge.”
