Bucs Joined By AmaZulu In Downs Defender’s Chase
Pirates And AmaZulu Linked With Sundowns Defender
Orlando Pirates have been joined by AmaZulu in the chase for Asavela Mbekile from Mamelodi Sundowns.
Mbekile has been linked with a move to Pirates for some time like several other players from Sundowns. Following the move of Oupa Manyisa from Pirates to Sundowns, a number of players from the Chloorkop club have been linked with the Soweto giants.
Although Mbekile is registered for Downs’ CAF Champions League campaign, he has found the going tough under Coach Pitso Mosimane, due to little game-time.
Thapelo Morena and the experienced Anele Ngcongca have been preferred at right back, while Mbekile has fallen down the pecking order. According to Siya sources in the know, AmaZulu are keen on bringing the player on board.
The PSL’s returnees have been reinforcing their team with quality players. The Durban side has recently signed Rhulani Manzini from Chippa United to add him to the likes of Thembela Sikhakhane and Michael Morton, who joined the side from Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United respectively.
With Mbekile left with only one year on his contract with Sundowns, it has been indicated by sources that an exit is on the cards for him. More on Mbekile and his future, read the full story in edition 1037 of Soccer Laduma.
