Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Sammy Seabi has vowed to fight for a place at the star-studded Downs side until he commands a regular place.
Seabi joined ‘Masandawana’ in August last year after spending four seasons at Polokwane City where he played over 80 games in all competitions.
The 25-year-old has had a slow start to his career at Chloorkop due to an injury (twisted ankle) that kept him out for over two month.
“It has been one and half month back training with the rest of the squad now so I am ready to take any challenge, be it physical or mentally” Seabi told FARPost.
“I am a man of patience, I know where I come from it has not been easy for me for the past few years when I started being a professional so I know the struggle,” he said.
Vieira as he is affectionately known faces some stiff competition in his position from the likes of Hlompho Kekana, Andile Jali, Tiyani Mabunda and Rivaldo Coetzee, while Oupa Manyisa and Lucky Mohomi are also still part of the team.
“I have grown to be a patient person so I will just wait for time as coach (Pitso Mosimane) always tells us that our time will come so my time will come. I know for sure and I believe in myself, I didn’t come to Sundowns just to add numbers, no! I came to make a mark so my time is coming,” said the MDC product with ‘Rise and Shine’.
With players like George Maluleka and Grant Margeman on their way to join the Brazilians ahead of next season, Seabi will have to push harder for a regular place at the Absa Premiership defending Champions.
