Goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni joins Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 9 February 2013 Time: 12:44

Mamelodi Sundowns have signed former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni on a short-term deal.

Ngobeni has penned a deal that will see him at Sundowns for at least until the end of the season, but it could be renewed.

The 24-year-old will be on the bench in the crucial League match against his former side, Chiefs, on February 12 since Sundowns will be without the services of Calvin Marlin and Dennis Onyango, who are out injured.

Ngobeni has already started training with his new teammates since their return from their mid-season Zimbabwe camp. He also played a match in the Reserve League for his new side, in the 6-1 hammering of SuperSport United.

1stly they signed Baloyi from Chiefs.

2ndly they wanted to sign itu khune and they promised him to be best paid African based player.

Lastly now they signed Chiefs reject and I'm sure he will be paid more than Sandilands, and the rest of the keepers. Khosi has the one of best keeper trainers in the world. If u dispute dis which keeper can do better than khune in one on one and in terms of ball distribution. Khune's ball distribution in all the afcon matches is 95%.

After he was 'Keita-Manauvered', kicking nd screaming out of Naturena...he must surely feel like he has a lot to prove, hopefully when the Mighty Amakhosi plays Downs in the future he doesn't present us with a problem!!!

6 points is wat we will get 4rm Sundowns every season!

Welcome to the yellow family ntwana. This is what I call sensible signing. Next we have to develop our own. Those who call you a reject must look closer to home.

This shudnt be abt Chiefs. Thela had no team and the only notable keeper available. Sundowns on the other hand needed a keeper as a cover to Wayne 4 chiefs games and maybe beyond. To me this deal makes sense. And besides Thela is a young and gr8 keeper, he showed tht, Marlin is aged.

Every Sundowns win over and also almost every loss to the Zebras is memorable, so expect something different this time, not Khosifoured but a memorable win for Sundowns.

Aaah sh!t chiefs fans are stupid. Chiefs signed bricks mudau, josta dladla, jose torrealba, fabian mcCarthy,zane moosa, linda buthelezi from sundowns. Sundowns took ajao, baloyi, phala, thela ngobeni, marco mthembu, and maybe a few others. So what? Chiefs have signed players from us, and we signed players from them. So what? I don't want to hear any stupid analysis from any chiefs fan, because all your comments are silly and don't hold any water!
