Downs Defender’s Future Uncertain, Celtic Monitoring?
Asavela Mbekile Facing Uncertain Mamelodi Sundowns Future
Asavela Mbekile is facing an uncertain future with Mamelodi Sundowns, with indications that he could be deemed surplus to requirements.
It was reported by the Siya crew in edition 1016 of Soccer Laduma that Mbekile will see his contract with Downs expire at the end of June, however, Sundowns have a one-year option on the player’s deal.
Mbekile has struggled to make the starting team at Sundowns since his arrival at Chloorkop in 2014. During the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season for Sundowns, the 30-year-old made only one start in the line-up for Pitso Mosimane and his technical team.
“Asavela Mbekile’s future with Mamelodi Sundowns is still unclear. The player could be affected by the squad changes expected to take place at the club. There are enough right backs in the team and Mbekile has been struggling for game time. Bloemfontein Celtic is interested in him,” said the source.
Golden Arrows were previously linked with the former Moroka Swallows player.
