Shuaib Walters has given props to Sundowns’ healthy competition in their goalkeeping department and how it has helped their players reach new heights, especially Rowan Williams. The former Maritzburg United and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Shuaib Walters believes that Ronwen Williams is at the right age to have joined Sundowns because of his maturity.
“Ronwen Williams is at the right age; I mean he is mature, and he knows how to handle himself on big occasions. The competition at Sundowns is very healthy for him and competition is at the capacity to keep him consistent. The competition that the club has is making him consistent because he knows any error could put him on the bench and he always has that in the back of his mind which will help with his consistency,” Walters told Thisisfootball.Africa.
Competition in the club is not only benefiting Ronwen Williams, but also the whole squad. Coach Rhulani Mokwena has integrated young blood into the system, and it has benefited the club immensely.
Sundowns have seen the likes of Keletso Makgalwa, Sphelele Mkhulise, Luvuyo Phewa, and hot prospect Cassius Mailula hit the ground running in a high-quality squad. Former SuperSport midfielder Teboho Mokoena has also enjoyed the peaks of competing against Mothobi Mvala and Andile Jali.
The depth at Sundowns has seen the club enjoy a lot of success, having won the league five times consecutively and having been PSL mainstays in the CAF Champions League. Sundowns have recreated the scenery in the PSL, causing Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs to fall under their pecking order.
