Denis Onyango is keen on staying at Mamelodi Sundowns

By Neo Poho

Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has revealed that he wants to stay at Chloorkop despite his contract with the club coming to an end soon.

Although Onyango was the second choice goalkeeper for Sundowns in the just ended DStv Premiership campaign after Ronwen Williams arrived from SuperSport United in the beginning of the season, the Ugandian international is adamant that the Brazilians will retain him for another season.

"Even though my contract is coming to an end with the club, my representatives are in talks with the club over a new deal in a bid to retain me, so I am really hoping that the club will retain me," Onyango said.

Onyango who has been one of the longest serving players at Sundowns having joined the club in 2011, won a record-extending 10th league title with the side during the just ended DStv Premiership campaign.

Amid talks over his contract extension with the club still on-going, Onyango has also revealed that Sundowns have indicated that they would support him to take the first steps into coaching towards the latter stages of his career.

"The club has reassured me that if an opportunity avails itself for me to become a goalkeeper coach or an administrator they will provide the necessary support.

In life when one door closes the other one opens so depending on what I want to do, and if the opportunity is there, the club will really be trying to help in whatever activity I want to do," Onyango added.

The 38-year-old was also part of Sundowns' 2016 CAF Champions League winning squad as well as the 2017 CAF Super Cup triumphant team with Masandawana.
