The Zambian international goalkeeper Kennedy Mwene has indicated his desire to leave the Sundowns team after seeing little action at the Chloorkop side. The number one position has been commanded by Dennis Onyango at Sundowns and Mwene has not played as he expected for the team. He now feels it is time for him to move and seek for a new home in the PSL.
Mwene has dropped to a third choice keeper at Sundowns after Onyango and Sandilands. His 3 year contract with the team ended in June 2016 and he has another 2 years that the team exercised but the Zambian is unhappy for not playing and feels he still has a lot to offer. He is also looking at ways to secure his national team position as he now faces losing his place as he has not been playing for his team.
Our source at Sundowns said “Kennedy is looking at possibilities of moving away from Sundowns as he has not been afforded enough game time for the past 2 seasons. He has asked management to be released so that he could play football again somewhere else. The management has yet to come back to him regarding his proposal”.
Mwene has been part of the Zambian national team that made history when they won the CAF African Cup of nations in 2013. The team that won that trophy has been regarded as one of the best Zambian teams of all time since the team that lost their lives while going to play for their national team years ago.
If Sundowns should grant Mwene his clearance, he will definitely be heading for one of the top teams in the PSL with Bidvest Wits said to be interested in him as Moneeb’s age might catch up with him sooner or later. Another factor is that Gavin Hunt is known to admire experienced goalkeepers and Mwene will definitely fits well at Wits.
