Ngwenya must prove himself - Trott


The midfielder, a favourite of Brazilians supporters has not seen action for Sundowns since Moloto took over from Gordon Igesund in February.

Moloto tells that “players choose themselves” and it is up to them to prove themselves worthy of selection.

“I don't choose players for games – the players choose themselves by what they show in training,” the former national coach says. “I don't have any favourites in my team – if you work hard at training, then you will get your chance to play.

“Manqoba is just like any other player in the team and will get his chance like any other player who is working hard at training.”

On the back of a 1-0 win over Kaizer chiefs, a buoyant Moloto adds that he is unfazed by the challenge of coming through a congested fixture list which has Sundowns at home to Thanda Royal Zulu in Absa Premiership match tomorrow, before travelling to face FC Cape Town in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals on Saturday, followed by the Tshwane Derby with Supersport United at Super Stadium on Tuesday. After that Sundowns will be on the plane to Sudan to face Al Hilal in the African Champions League.

“We cannot change this situation; we cannot tell the PSL and CAF to change the fixtures for us,” Moloto says. “We have to live with this situation and I am confident that my team will handle it.”

Good news for Moloto is that defender Robyn Johannes is back at training after missing the League win over Chiefs on Sunday due to injury.
