Mamelodi Sundowns new signing Sifiso Ngobeni

Mamelodi Sundowns have further bolstered their squad ahead of the 2021-22 DStv Premiership campaign after capturing the services of defender Sifiso Ngobeni from Bloemfontein Celtic.

The 24-year-old has now become the second player behind midfielder Neo Maema to join the club from Celtic where he made 21 league appearances for Siwelele last season.

Following his stand-out performer for Bafana Bafana during the triumph in the Cosafa Cup, Ngobeni earned a move to Chloorkop after putting pen to paper on a five-year contract.

Mamelodi Sundowns released the following statement on the signing of Sifiso Ngobeni:

"Mamelodi Sundowns are delighted to welcome left-back Sifiso Ngobeni from Bloemfontein Celtic. 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!"
