It is very rare for most players to place national league ahead of continental club trophy, but Mamelodi Sundowns left winger – Tebogo Langerman has said that winning the Premier Soccer League [PSL] remains the most important silverware for him.

“If I have to choose I’d say the Premiership league title because it’s a big trophy in South Africa and it gives many opportunities like going into continental competitions,” Langerman told the club’s official website.

“For most players, winning the league gives you the chance to go overseas and when you become the player of the year it shows your consistency.”

Born on May 6, 1986, in Johannesburg [South Africa] Langerman has won eight trophies including the CAF Champions League since signing for Masandawana [Sundowns] in 2012, but insist the PSL title remains the most prestigious.

The veteran player also spoke about what has kept him long in the club for all these while:

“Being at Sundowns for this long means a lot and I’m happy to be at a club of this size for this long and still be able to keep my position at this age.

“I am being helped by everyone at the club, from the president (Dr Patrice Motsepe), management, the working staff, my family, and the Sundowns supporters.”

Mamelodi Sundowns lie second on the 2019/2020 PSL table with 44 points having played 21 matches, one game less than leaders Kaizer Chiefs who are on 48 points.
