Thanda Royal Zulu have signed midfielder Manqoba 'Shakes' Ngwenya just days after he arrived at the Richards Bay based club for a brief assessment.
Ngwenya, who spent time at Mpumalanga Black Aces after leaving Mamelodi Sundowns, has signed a one-year deal with the club and is confident that he will help them to promotion. "We have just concluded the deal for Manqoba Ngwenya on a one year contract," says team manager Peter Koutrolis. "He is a player that we have belief in and he will be our last signing until the year ends. It is a dream for us to have a player of his calibre in our squad because he will also help bring in the crowds to our games. He has previously worked with Neil Tovey while both were at Sundowns, so it is a reunion for them. "I don't care what happened in the last few years because the bottom line is that he is still a quality player. I was there when we signed him at Sundowns and I still believe in him and see him as being able to help us through to promotion to the PSL," says Koutroulis. Ngwenya (30) has one Bafana Bafana cap.
