Downs star signs new long-term deal


Sibusiso Vilakazi has committed himself to Mamelodi Sundowns by signing a new long-term contract, the club confirmed on Friday.

The 30-year-old playmaker has thrived at Chloorkop since his arrival from Bidvest Wits in 2016 and has been rewarded for an excellent 2019/20 season with a new four-year deal.

With 10 goals and 11 assists in 32 games across all competitions this season, it marks his career-best figures after overcoming a serious Achilles tendon rupture injury that ruled him out for a large section of last season.

"I am honoured, I am humbled and I am excited to be given another opportunity to play for this great team," Vilakazi told the club's website.

"I would like to thank the President [Dr. Patrice Motsepe], the board for trusting and having faith in me and also my coach [Pitso Mosimane], the technical team, my teammates for playing a part as well in me given this opportunity."

The 32-time capped South Africa international has lifted four trophies at Sundowns, which includes two Absa Premiership titles, the Telkom Knock Out and the 2017 CAF Super Cup.
