Cele, who was tipped for great things in football, has been in the wilderness since he was booted out of AmaZulu last season.
“I’m happy that at last I’ve got a team where I can showcase my talent. It’s been frustrating sitting on the sidelines. I will use this move to resuscitate my career. Sobantu is in my hometown, so I won’t have to worry about a lot of things because everything will be close to me.”
Sobantu are still in talks with ex-Pirates, SuperSport United and Maritzburg United midfielder Cavann Sibeko.
They already have ex-Kaizer Chiefs marksman Simphiwe ‘Mbambo’ Mkhize on their books. Mkhize played a part during their 6-0 demolition of Ulundi Stars at the weekend.
