Former Maritzburg United Defender Joins New Club
Former Maritzburg United defender, Themba Shabalala, has joined a new club for the 2017/18 season.
Shabalala parted ways with Maritzburg in August, as reported by the Siya crew. The 30-year-old has penned a deal with Mbombela United in the National First Division.
“Themba Shabalala has joined Mbombela United. He has signed a one-year deal with the club,” said the source.
Contacted for comment, Mbombela’s co-chairman Oupa Matsebula confirmed the signing of the Tembisa-born player by the club.
“We have signed him. With his signing we are more like putting a concrete wall at the back to prevent conceding goals,” said Matsebula.
Shabalala has previously also played for Free State Stars and Jomo Cosmos during his professional career.
