Mamelodi Sundowns Haashim Domingo has been enjoying a solid start to his second campaign in the colours of The Brazilian, being involved in all three opening games this season. The attacking midfielder has earned praise and encouragement from The Yellow Nation for his work rate and willingness to help the team
The 26-year old has been competing amongst the best players in the country ever since he made his move from Bidvest Wits to Chloorkop last season. Having now spent a full season with Masandawana, it looks like things are looking up for Domingo who gives credit to the off-season preparations and Downs technical team:
“I think what has helped me to [start so well] was the work in the off-season to be ready for pre-season. The technical team really helped by giving me insight to improve my game tremendously.” Domingo said.
The Cape Town-born star was involved in Masandawana’s crucial win in the opening league game of the season against rivals AmaZulu FC, playing a key pass to his teammate Peter Shalulile who earned the penalty which decided the game. The Brazilians fan base have given Domingo plenty of recognition on social media and “Hash” is keeping his feet on the ground and trying to improve.
“It is always amazing to see these types of remarks, it motivates us as players to continue giving our all in every single match.” Haashim expressed himself.
Whilst the support has been prevalent on the social media platforms, Domingo shared his feelings on how much he misses the supporters being the 12th man behind the team: “I would just like to express how much we miss having our fans at the stadiums as they play a huge role. Our fans are important, we as the entire team will try our best to give them the result that they want and we thank them for the unwavering support.”
Bafana Ba Style have their next hurdle ahead of them in the highly anticipated MTN8 Cup semi-finals against Golden Arrows. With both home and away legs on the horizon, Domingo says it’s important to take each game as it comes: “I don’t think anything changes [in our preparation]. We approach each game as though it is our last, we always want to come out victorious and therefore nothing ever changes.”
