Ngobeni Returns To Where It All Began

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!

    I wonder when are We going to stop signing this players, the player yhat is missing is none other than Mbule or Ramiro Ponce from Bolivia not all this left-footed players we have now.
    Other problem that Downs do they never recall the loanees they will keep on loaning them to another team till the so called “five year contract “expired players like Nyiko ,Phewa and others.
    If my memory serves me well they are only three players we recalled from loan its Mambush,Zwane and Tau.
    Let’s not be financial rescue to all this teams that are bankrupt by signing their where are they going to play because we also don’t release the fringe players.
    I hate the transfer window because our team will sign any player and put on grandstand sometimes I agree with the opposition fans that we don’t want competition, Kby forever


    So many recruiting were about nine recruited last season on top others this season already 6 how to manage more than 40 suppose to realized unused such as Bangaly.Peters and others but not Kekena&Makgalwa

    Where are these players going to play this is just monopoly capital. We lakay,modiba, this new guy from arrows and ngobeni its a team of lefts and these coaches failed to play available decent players wow let’s watch and see. I hope Pitso can come back

    I think on this one I beg to differ with guys! Modiba is good in the position of a left back /wing back because he does not have speed. He can rather play in the midfield. He has deft touches but lacks speed to play as a wing back! So that wing position will be contested by 3 players Sifiso/Devine and Lyle! Even is more of midfied player than wing back! Sifiso and Devine provide us with proper wing back qualities in terms of and speed and bring crosses! But i agree that it seems the squad is now bloated! We have got too many players in the team! Lets the coaches will realise some or send them away on loan!

    Welcome boy , we are looking forward to see you donning the colours. One thing though is that we have too many left players , but for future I fully support the signing ,the age is on his side. I here Affonso is leaving if that is true , I feel we will loose a good striker there who I think never got enough chance to show what he is made of. I wish teams like Chiefs and Pirates can sign him and use him to show what a player Affonso is, this guy has all the qualities but he was robbed by injuries.


    Why Sundowns management allowed Mnqithi destroyed team he chase away foundation Pitso work harder put team to that level this is second i see this guy destroyed team done same at Amazulu destroyed foundation were lay by Nel Tovey to change team u need time Sundowns will never be the same

    Mr Mzimela I think what other fellow Dawanas including me is the size of the team, they’re too many let the team release others especially the old ones like Langerman and Kekana etc We can’t have them forever players come and go even other teams they’re refreshing their teams by adding few players every window period and if We are serious on challenging the North African teams We must buy because they also strengthening their teams and they are not afraid to spend.
    Let the Technical team release others that are always sitting on the grandstand, I’m appealing to you guys just watch the player we want from Bolivia by the name of Ramiro Vaca Ponce a 21 year old and tell me we don’t need him,that boy is twice as good as Sirino even Sipho Mbule is a marvel to watch he can add a spice to our team BUT they must trim down the squad.
    Players like Mambush,Nyandoro,Feutmba and Moriri we released them so why we must keep the old ones that are tired PLS don’t get me wrong they’re were good and gave us the trophies but its over now,Kby forever


    Muzi i understand u points thats true to do u to be careful take easy not rush sometime to remove core.of the team danger thanks brother kabu yellow

    Welcome boy, hope you will enjoy your stay.

    Technical team must release players we don’t needon time .

    To me this thing of signing so many players that you even give game time does not make sense at all.

    This technical team continues to use same players for the competition, so what is the use of signing many players.

    Look Megaman, that boy is very good, how many have did they play him.

    I’m still disappointed that we did not beat Pistso team at home and you wonder if these too many signings are justified when you consistently can’t go beyond quarter finals.
