Official: Pelembe Secures New Club

Mozambique legend Elias Pelembe has landed a new move after his exit from Royal AM.

Pelembe, 39, recently made his 100th senior international cap and now returns to his homeland with US Songo in the Mocambola.

The veteran midfielder spent 16 years in South Africa after first arriving with SuperSport United back in 2007 where he won two league titles.

He also added two further DStv Premiership crowns with Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits respectively before stints with Polokwane City and Royal AM.

He racked up over 300 games in the South African top-flight and departs as one of the greatest ever foreigners to grace the league.
