Ex-Polokwane Midfielder Joins Cape Side
Lebohang Motumi Pens Ubuntu Cape Town FC Deal
Former Polokwane City midfielder has joined Ubuntu Cape Town FC, after parting ways with the Limpopo outfit.
The deal has been confirmed by the NFD outfit that recently bought the second-tier status of FC Cape Town.
“Ubuntu Cape Town Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of defensive midfielder, Lebohang Motumi.
“Motumi, having spent three seasons in the PSL at Polokwane City, is no stranger to professional football and plans to settle him in with the new Cape Town based NFD side have been in the works for just over 10 days,” the Mother City outfit confirmed on their website.
The Welkom-born player has been officially welcomed to the Cape side by the club’s chairman, Michael Jenkins.
“Lebo has adjusted well to life in Cape Town during his short stay with us and has shown incredible signs of an experienced and professional player.
“The fact that we can attract a player with three years of PSL experience is fantastic motivation for our young group of players and management.
“Lebs will be a major asset to the club in the upcoming campaign as he brings tremendous experience.
“He’ll play a pivotal role in front of our back four with his blend of being a fierce and aggressive tackler as well as being an excellent passer of the ball. This makes him perfect for a team like ours who is comfortable to play out from the back,” Jenkins told the club’s website.
Motumi has joined the club on a two-year deal.
“From what I have seen, we have a good team. There’s a lot of young stars who are full of potential and the coach is playing a big role in terms of how he wants us to play,” Motumi has been quoted as saying.
Motumi is the fourth marquee signing for Ubuntu, as the club has also added Ethen Sampson, Bukhosi Sibanda and Taahir Ganga to Roger Links’ squad.
