Pitso Mosimane hails Themba Zwane after win over SuperSport United


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane hailed the return of influential midfielder Themba Zwane after the win over SuperSport United.

Zwane missed the Absa Premiership defeat at Orlando Pirates in Soweto last Wednesday due to suspension after collecteing his fourth booking against Bidvest Wits.

'Mshishi' returned to Sundowns' starting line-up for the Tshwane derby in Atteridgeville on Sunday and Zwane scored the first goal in a 2-1 victory over Matsatsantsa.

"Whenever Mshishi is around, he plays the music. You know the story," said Mosimane about his playmaker's return.

"Look at the midfield today. It's more like we have one man or two more people extra in the midfield because of Mshishi's movements. Him, Vila and Sirino, they combine well. When these ones are on song, you see the Sundowns play.

"Mshishi is very important to us. We can't talk about why he didn't play against Pirates, it's gone."

Besides Zwane's return to the team, The Brazilians also welcomed back defender Ricardo Nascimento on the bench after more than six months on the sidelines following groin surgery.
