Speaking to FARPost, Zwane said the side, fighting for eighth place in the PSL this season, had to be more patient with his cousin.

Zwane said:

“Ntseki came in, it was worse, and now Johnson, even more worse. So, I think supporters are learning that sometimes you mustn’t rush trophies. His [Arthur’s] stats, compared to what you’re seeing now, are a little bit better. So, it’s a matter of time and space, nothing to do with their ability.”
