Several PSL stars look back at 2014 and celebrate the year while mapping out their goals for 2015 and the future.
Benson Mhlongo (Polokwane City)
“During this break I will be taking things easy and relaxing at the gym. 2014 has been interesting with lots of ups and downs but I am happy that we are all still fine. As a team we need to stay focused and go back to our basics and make our fans happy. Things were not easy; we had to adapt very quickly but all this is for the better.
“In 2015 I hope that we will continue where we left off. I will continue to work hard and hope to contribute positively to the side. I wish everyone a good Christmas and when they start a new year they must be fresh and ready to put in the hard work.”
Dillon Sheppard (Bidvest Wits)
“2014 has been great for me. I have enjoyed my stay at Wits and had the opportunity to play. As you know that I tore my groin against SuperSport in the Telkom quarterfinal, so I am still going through the rehabilitation.
“For these holidays I will be with my family but will be training everyday so that I keep up with fitness.
“My plan for 2015 is to recover well and make sure that we put pressure on Kaizer Chiefs. I had a good season until I got injured, but apart from that it has been great - I have had a good year.
“I wish everyone a happy Christmas and a very good new year. Let’s all work hard and enjoy the time we have with our loved ones.”
Nathan Paulse (Ajax Cape Town)
“This past year 2014 I think has been a good one for Ajax. The club got back onto its feet even though the last few games we dropped a bit. Overall a positive year.
“Looking to 2015, I think if we just go back to what we were doing at the start of the season and improve then I think we can expect to start the New Year well. I am excited for having a little break and then coming back strong in January.
“Personally I just want to reach those targets that I set for myself and to play a positive role at Ajax and contribute where and when I can to get the club back to form.
“I am looking forward to spending time with my family and to enjoy the holidays. To all the fans please be safe and careful, be smart and have safe fun! And enjoy your family time.”
Kennedy Mweene (Mamelodi Sundowns)
“When I think back to 2014, nothing huge stands out for me. Personally, we did not start the current league season that well. Also, both cups we played in we did not get the final, so we had a few disappointments on the field in 2014.
“For 2015 in terms of my work at Sundowns, what interest me is that we will be in the CAF Champions League and this is a challenge. Then, we also have the Absa Premiership to defend. It will be interesting to go for gold in both of these challenges. I want to win silverware.
“There is also the Nations Cup with Zambia, so I have a lot of hard work ahead to make sure I am ready for these variety of challenges.”
