Margemaan excited for Downs test

Grant Margeman is hoping to make an impact at Mamelodi Sundowns next season following his switch from Ajax Cape Town.

The 21-year-old will join Pitso Mosimane's side at the end of the season, having been scouted by the reigning league champions for over a year.

Prior to the suspension of all football activities, Margeman was working hard to help his current club achieve promotion to the PSL.

He has three goals in the GladAfrica Championship, with his performances naturally catching the eye of SA U23 Coach David Notoane.

Speaking to IOL, Margeman expressed his delight at the move while also revealing his long-term ambitions.

He said: "I'm happy to join a club as big as Sundowns, but my focus, for now, is at Ajax Cape Town.

"Sundowns is a big team in South Africa. They compete in Africa and they are winning titles. We've also seen players moving from Sundowns to overseas.

"That's what I want to achieve as a player. I want to win titles, compete in Africa, play for the national team and go overseas.

"I believe in my ability. I feel I made the right choice by joining Sundowns. Yes, there will be those who doubt that I can make it at Sundowns or I'm going to kill my career there. But that won't distract me.

"I will go there, work hard and compete for my place."
