Ambitious First Division club Royal Eagles have extended the contract of top-scoring defender Walter Maponyane and agreed in principle with Mark Mayambela to keep him at the club.
Despite being a central defender, the former Mamelodi Sundowns player finished the season on 11 goals and has now signed a two-year extension with an option of a further year.
“We have signed and sealed a two-year extension with Walter because we are very happy with what he did for us as captain this past season scoring 11 goals as a central defender,” Richard Makhoba, the club GM, tells KickOff.com.
With regards to Mayambela, Makhoba says they are keen on retaining him.
“We are happy with what we saw of him after working his way back from injury towards the end of the season. We have agreed in principle that he will stay at the club,” says Makhoba.
Mayambela joined the club in February after his return from a brief stint in Sweden.
Meanwhile, the club has also confirmed that Abram ‘Wire’ Nteo will be staying at the club as assistant to new head coach Vladislav Heric.
Nteo previously worked with Heric at African Warriors.
