Wayne Sandilands: Mamelodi Sundowns are focused on MTN8 results, not cash


The 28-year-old admits that the pressure is on, after the clash against Moroka Swallows at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Saturday night ended 3-3.

"We are putting a lot of pressure on ourselves finally to win some silverware for the club," he says.

"If you look around the changeroom you see the quality that is there and then you realise there is a lot we can achieve.

"So it's a matter of trying to get the results on the field and we are working hard on that. We are hungry."

The goalkeeper says his teammates are not just focused on their pay-cheques, but on results.

"There is no player who just wants to be there just because he is earning the money. We are all hungry and we are doing everything we can to try and win something," he says.

The former Platinum Stars goalkeeper says he intends to retire at the club after signing a new five-year deal.

"I'm humbled and grateful. It's a privilege for me to be able to play for the club for longer," Sandilands says. "I feel like I don't have to play for any other club, that's why I signed for five years so I will be happy to retire at Sundowns if, of course, that's God's will.

"I don't see myself wanting to be anywhere else at this point in time ... it's a beautiful club to be part of," Sandilands continues.
