DURBAN – Thamsanqa Sangweni readily admits that he has failed to live up to his billing as a great talent with massive potential to be a superstar.
However, instead of wallowing in self-pity, the midfielder from Empangeni is putting the past where it belongs and focusing on making the best use of the latest opportunity he has to showcase his undoubted talent.
“I disappointed myself and a lot of people,” Sangweni acknowledged yesterday. “But right now I just want to use this opportunity to revive my career.”
That chance has been provided by Maritzburg United, who yesterday introduced Sangweni and their other new signings at the Umsunduzi Athletics Stadium.
Sangweni joins from National First Division side Richards Bay United - a long way from the dizzy heights of wearing the yellow and blue of Mamelodi Sundowns or the black and white of Orlando Pirates.
