Mahlakgane is confident that Zwane will soon sign a new deal with the Sundowns, which saw one of their most influential players enter the final 12 months of his contract.

“People don’t have to worry, he will sign a new contract with the club.”

“What I can say is that I love the team and we are still talking. That’s all I can say and the fans can continue to support the team, ”Zwane recently told the media.
