Insider Reveals How Ngezana Ended Up At FCSB

Florin Vulturar, a well-known player’s representative in Europe, has explained how Siyabonga Ngezana’s move from Kaizer Chiefs to FCSB happened.

Ngezana made a surprise move at the beginning of the current season, joining FCSB on a five-year contract and the Romanian giants are understood to have paid €600 000 for the transfer.

Vulturar, who is known for having an eye for good talent, followed Ngezana for six months during his time at Chiefs before telling teams in Europe about him.

The former Chiefs defender was wanted by four European clubs, Hungarian side Ferencvárosi TC, Moldovan giants FC Sheriff and Denmark’s Copenhagen but ended up joining Gigi Becali’s FCSB.

The 26-year-old won his first-ever league title last weekend and helped FCSB to end their nine-year drought in the league.

“Ngezana was followed for a very long time, about six months before we brought him,” Vulturar told Fanatik.

“He was a very interesting player in every way. I liked his strength and speed. And yet, in South Africa it’s a pretty good championship.

“You see, Safranko left Sepsis and didn’t last very long. And quite a large sum was paid. It’s a pretty good championship.

“I kept talking to FCSB about him and in the end we managed to bring him to a finish, even though we had some pretty strong teams that we were fighting with. Ferencvaros are still upset that they didn’t manage to get him.

“He had offers from Ferencvaros, from Copenhagen, from Sheriff. Had [the] offer from Sheriff before FCSB. But in the end we managed to convince him to bring him to FCSB.”
