Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Grant Margeman, who has been part of David Notoane’s under-23 camp in Durban, says it would be a huge honour if selected for the final squad to play at the Tokyo Olympics.
Having joined Sundowns from Ajax Cape Town two seasons ago, Margeman, who spent last season at Ajax on loan, may not have earned a regular spot at Chloorkop yet, but he has been a major player at junior international level in the past, having played (and scored at) the FIFA under-20 World Cup in Korea in 2017.
Notoane’s camp in Durban for locally-based only players proved successful, and they won training games against Golden Arrows and Maritzburg United.
“Firstly it’s an honour to be part of the U23 camp in Durban, it gives me another opportunity to showcase my talent and ability and to show the coach that I deserve to be part of the team for final selection,.” Margeman told Sundowns website.
“It also gives me a chance to build up my confidence and makes me go back to the club with a good mentality and a positive mindset.”
Margeman says it will be a big honour to be part of the final selection for the Olympics, if selected.
“To be part of the final selection to take part in the upcoming Olympics would be a huge achievement for me, it would be an honour.”
“It’s an event that only comes around once every four years and its of the biggest sporting event in the world. It would be a chance for me to showcase my talent and represent my country and hopefully make the country proud, it would be an honour.”
