Mnqithi: His The Lead Singer
Posted: 6 May 2021
Mamelodi Sundowns FC have in recent years promoted an influx of talented youngsters from their well-run academy in Chloorkop.
The latest addition to the first-team set-up is the precocious talent of Promise Mkhuma. The Beautiful Game asked Co-Head Coach Manqoba Mnqithi on the personality of the youngster off the pitch, and he said to us;
“Promise is a very nice kid, very vocal, outspoken, and surprisingly, he is a lead singer in the team. If you listen to the team singing, you must know that it’s Promise who is leading in that.
“But I think he should consider recording because he is very good (in singing). And in terms of his personality, he is a boy who has got a very bright future, who works very hard, which is why he is playing regularly and many people are complaining as to why Promise and not so and so.
“Our bias is more on players who give their heart out to the team, who work very hard and he fulfills our technical objectives, both defensively and offensively. We do believe that he’s going to be very helpful going forward,” concluded Mnqithi.
The 20-year-old Pretoria-born playmaker will be hoping to add to the minutes he has played this season in trying to help the Brazilians retain the league title.
