Themba Zwane, a midfielder for Mamelodi Sundowns, burst onto the professional scene after being signed from Vardos FC in the Vodacom League (now ABC Motsepe League). However, due to the talent-filled team at Sundowns, Zwane was sent out on loan to Mpumalanga Black Aces. It was during this time that he crossed paths with a man known as “The Dog,” who quickly drew comparisons between Zwane and the legendary Doctor Khumalo, even referring to Zwane as “Doc.” Zwane credits this man for giving him confidence and pushing him to excel.
Zwane revealed that “The Dog,” whose real name is not mentioned in the text, urged him to join either Kaizer Chiefs or Orlando Pirates if Sundowns was not interested in keeping him. However, Zwane chose to return to Sundowns. Since then, he has won 16 trophies, proving that his choice was justified.
Overall, Zwane’s career has seen him make a name for himself in South African football, with his talent and determination leading to numerous successes at Mamelodi Sundowns.
