Mamelodi Sundowns coach Steve Komphela says he expects midfield star Themba Zwane to only get better and better.

The 2019/20 Premier Soccer League player of the season has started this campaign in fine fashion with seven goals in seven league games.

Alongside a number of man-of-the-match performances, Zwane was named Player of the Month for November.

Speaking while sitting at the top of the Premiership and ahead of facing Golden Arrows on Saturday, Komphela expressed his admiration for the 31-year-old.

He was reported by the Citizen as saying: "Zwane is a player who plays effortlessly. He is just capable of doing as he wishes with the ball. When he comes across people who trust him and have confidence in him, he only gets better.

"I look at the goal he scored against TS Galaxy, the manner in which he picked his spot and hit the back of the net, it tells you that this guy is playing without stress, he is composed and he is comfortable and happy. We only hope that he stays like that and gets better."

Komphela added: "I still see a room for improvement in terms of what he can do. The guy is immensely talented and I think he still operates within his comfort zone, I think he needs to go to a higher level of discomfort so that he can stretch his potential and he will be a monster."
