‘I can’t see us winning the league’ – says the want-out Williams

SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams has shed light on what he wants in the near future and he is clear that he is looking to leave the Pretoria-based club.

Williams has been one of the main subjects when it comes to the transfer windows over the past few years. With all the rumours indicating that he would move to one of the big three clubs, but it would all just vanish into thin air with him committing to his childhood club.

His ambitions to win the league drive his eyes to look elsewhere rather than believing that Matsatsantsa can challenge for the title. Williams says the talks have begun and there has been some interest in him from other clubs.

“There have been talks and we will see what is going to happen, but there has been some interest and now it will depend on if the club is willing to let me go,” Ronwen Williams said at a Castle Lager ‘It’s Within’ event.

“But I’ve told SuperSport what my ambitions are and it’s for them to decide if they want me to stay. If they want me to stay I will gladly do so, but if they decided to let me go maybe it’s the time now.

“But, like I said, I’m happy at SuperSport. We will see in the next few weeks what’s going to happen.

“My ambitions are to win the league. I told them I haven’t won the league and obviously the direction the club is going in now we should be realistic, we’ve got a lot of youngsters, there’s no chance that we can challenge the bigger boys.

“I can’t see us winning the league title. Yes, we will challenge for the cups here and there, but I’ve got bigger ambitions than that. We will see what happens, but if I stay, I will give my all like I always do.”

After graduating from the youth academy, Williams joined the first team in 2011 and has been the regular shot-stopper since then.
