Official: Sundowns Confirm Ngobeni
Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed the signing of Bloemfontein Celtic and Bafana Bafana left back Sifiso Ngobeni.
The 24-year-old was a member of the Bafana team that won the Cosafa Cup last weekend.
Ngobeni, a former Sundowns youth player, returns to the club after an impressive two seasons at Celtic.
He is the sixth signing at the club, following Thabiso Kutumela, Pavol Safranko, Divine Lunga, Grant Kekana and Neo Maema, who also joined from Celtic.
“Mamelodi Sundowns are delighted to welcome left-back Sifiso Ngobeni from Bloemfontein Celtic,” the club said on their website.
“The Mamelodi-born defender returns to his hometown to represent The Brazilians following the signing of a 5-year deal.
“The 24-year old made 21 league appearances for Siwelele last season. Ngobeni played an essential part in the 2021 COSAFA Cup tournament representing Bafana Bafana as they went on to win the prestigious tournament held in Gqeberha, Eastern Cape on Sunday 19, July 2021.
“The full-back becomes the second player from the Free State-based side that has joined the Yellow Nation this off-season and will join up with his former teammate Neo Maema at Chloorkop.
“Welcome home, Ngobs!”
