Mamelodi Sundowns

Agent Finally Speaks On Imminent Downs Exit

There’s been a veil of secrecy around the imminent departure of one of Mamelodi Sundowns’ senior players, but now his agent his finally broken his silence.

Mike Makaab, who represents veteran defender Anele Ngcongca, has tried to clear the air on the players’ reported transfer back to Belgium.

KSV Roeselare last month dropped a bombshell that the club had secured the services of the 32-year-old former Genk star despite common knowledge in the Premier Soccer League that he had recently renewed his Downs contract for another year. 

According to sources, indications are that the team which competes in the second tier of Belgian football would not have paid a transfer fee and therefore tried to sign the defender on a free. 

To date, Sundowns have not made any official statements regarding Ngcongca and claims made by Roeselare, who’ve also confirmed in an email to the Siya crew that the player is expected “soon” – supposedly at the end of the season here in Mzansi. 

Having avoided the issue for several weeks now, Makaab finally broke his silence to address what is now believed to be a pending move.

“I need to confirm that Anele has a contract with Mamelodi Sundowns, however in initial discussions with the club they feel that if this is an opportunity to return to Belgium, then Anele will end the season with Sundowns and then a decision will be made,” he told the Siya crew in today’s edition of Soccer Laduma.

“We’ve undertaken that if this is a real possibility, and we are aware that Anele is not young, and he can get a coaching career for example – because that is the intention after football – then I am confident a solution will be found.” 

Ngcongca, who made 53 appearances for Bafana Bafana, spent nearly a decade at Genk and recently revealed that he has a pension fund in Belgium worth R23-million and would have access to it when he retires or turns 35.
