Langerman Leaves Downs, Joins New Club

Word reaching the Siya crew is that Mamelodi Sundowns veteran Tebogo Langerman is leaving Chloorkop and set to join their rivals.

As previously reported by Soccer Laduma last month, the experienced defender was offered to Swallows following a season in which he managed a mere seven appearances in all competitions with Aubrey Modiba and Lyle Lakay preferred ahead of him.

Indications are that Langerman, 35, requested guarantees from the Downs technical team that his game time would improve in the upcoming campaign, but following those discussions it’s believed the player was not given any.

Now, the Siya crew has been led to believe that, as a result, the player has since agreed a deal in principle to move on and join the Dube Birds.

It’s the end of an era – Langerman joined Sundowns nine years ago from crosstown rivals SuperSport United and went on to win six league titles at Chloorkop as well as the CAF Champions League and Super Cup during his spell with the club.

However, the technical team, led by co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena, has taken the decision to reduce the average age of the squad, which is currently in progress.

Langerman is a casualty of this decision, but is now expected to bounce back at Swallows, who finished an impressive sixth position in their maiden DStv Premiership season since they were relegated from the topflight six years ago.

According to insiders at Chloorkop, the defender is likely to be joined by Jody February, Katlego Mohamme and Keletso Makgalwa from Downs.
