Ex-Downs Defender Resurfaces At PSL Rivals

Shortly after his exit from Mamelodi Sundowns, defender Brian Mandela Onyango could soon land himself a new club after he resurfaced at SuperSport United.

Onyango left the Chloorkop-based outfit at the end of June 2024 after the club opted not to renew his contract upon its expiration. He joined Sundowns from Maritzburg United in July 2019 but was used sparingly during his three-year stay.

The 29-year-old made just over 60 appearances and scored two goals in Masandawana colours. He won six trophies during his time in Tshwane, including three league titles and the African Football League.

Last season, he was however limited to just nine appearances across all competitions in a star-studded backline comprised of Grant Kekana, Mothobi Mvala, Mosa Lebusa, Abdelmounaim Boutouil and Rushine De Reuck.

This publication understands that Onyango arrived at Matsatsantsa on Thursday morning for training under the watchful eye of head coach Gavin Hunt after spending few weeks in his home country Kenya on holiday.

He had his second training session this morning (Friday) with SuperSport and is said to be seen as the perfect replacement for Bafana Bafana defender Siyanda Xulu who was deemed surplus to requirements after just one season with the club.
