Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene has hinted at the idea of becoming a coach after hanging up his gloves.

The 38-year-old is currently one of the most experienced and decorated players in the PSL, after making his move to Chloorkop back in 2013.

Since then, Mweene has gone on to win multiple trophies with the Brazilians, whether locally or continentally. Now though, the Zambian stepped into a mentoring role recently, in the absence of Downs goalkeeper coach, Wendell Robinson.

Stepping in as the club’s goalkeeper coach against Orlando Pirates and Richards Bay, Mweene revealed that he enjoyed the task and that he would consider getting his coaching colours after retirement.

“Coach Wendell was suspended, so I was asked by coach Rulani Mokwena to help and that’s something that I did,” Mweene said as per Sunday Times.

“To be honest, It wasn’t too difficult because there were familiar faces with me, people who I talk to everyday.

“There was nothing too hectic to do and it was business as usual. I enjoyed working as goalkeeper coach with the guys.

“When this opportunity was presented, I grabbed it with both hands. It is something which came my way, my colleagues were making a bit of fun of me.

“But it was in a good way and this is something I will definitely consider after retiring, but at the moment I am still a player.”
