Mamelodi Sundowns playmaker Sibusiso Vilakazi says “it would be amazing” to win his first PSL title with the club.
The 28-year-old joined ‘Downs at the start of last season but had to watch as his former team Bidvest Wits went on to claim their first title.
This time around Vilakazi has helped the Brazilians to top spot on the Absa Premiership log,where they have a four-point lead over Orlando Pirates with eight rounds of the season still to play.
“When you start football, you play with a purpose and ambition. And you want to win certain trophies and you want to say 'I have won the title one or two times'. That’s the major one and there’s also the Champions League and the Club World Cup. Those are the things you want to win,” Vilakazi told Kick-Off.
“It would be amazing [to win it], not only me but the team as well because there are other players in the team who have not won it. Some have won it and would like to add. I find myself in an interesting zone and I would like to be in this position whereby we are always trying to win titles.”
Vila added, “To be honest, when I was on the opposite side it was quite amazing to see the guys winning trophies. It motivated me and I wanted to be part of this group.”
Sundowns will continue their league campaign this Friday when they face AmaZulu in Durban.
