Mbabane Swallows striker Sabelo Ndzinisa says he hopes to fulfil his dream of playing in the Absa Premiership following recent interest.
Ndzinisa was the top goalscorer in the Swazi Premier League last season with 19 goals as Swallows won league title without losing a single league match, as they finished 23 points ahead of second-placed Young Buffaloes.
Swallows general manager Sandile Zwane last week told this website that Ndzinisa is wanted by Mamelodi Sundowns and Platinum Stars, yet neither club have officially tabled an offer.
The 25-year-old, who was turned away by Bloemfontein Celtic last season after spending three weeks on trials with Felix Badernhost, showcased his talent in front of goals by scoring all four goals in the CAF Confederation Cup against Dikwena – the club that is now interested in the player.
And the striker feels that if he keeps up that form, a move across the border will come sooner rather than later.
”I think if I continue to play the way I have been playing, my dream may finally come true because as a footballer you want to play in the best leagues,” Ndzinisa tells KickOff.com.
”And of course playing in the PSL will be a dream come true. Since I haven’t played in the PSL before, I will play for any team I can fit into if given the chance. So there’ll be no need to choose between those two [Sundowns or Stars]. Any team that is interested, I’ll play for.”
Ndzninisa, whose 19 goal tally this season was more than Celtic – the team who turned him away last year – scored the whole of last season, revealed he was told that he was not the type of player Siwelele were looking for, hence they turned him down.
But, he says, he’ll more than happily return to try prove himself again.
”Unfortunately we were told we were not the players they were looking for,” he said. “If they’re still interested in me I’m available, they can still negotiate with the chairman.”
