Defender Signs New 3-Year Deal With Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that one of their veteran defenders has committed his long-term future to the club.

The Siya crew reported in June that the Brazilians were in contract talks with Ricardo Nascimento, looking to extend his stay beyond June 30, 2021.

The Brazilians have since confirmed that the 33-year-old centre-back has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal which will keep him at the club until 2023.

“Ricardo Nascimento has committed to a three-year contract with Mamelodi Sundowns having joined the Brazilians in July 2016 from Academica in the Primera League in Portugal,” Sundowns confirmed on their official website.

“I feel very happy about the confidence Mamelodi Sundowns has shown in me and my football abilities. I want to thank the President, Dr. Patrice Motsepe, the Board and the Technical team with Coach Pitso. From the start, I was well-received by all the supporters and I to thank the supporters and my teammates for making me feel so welcome. My family and I are enjoying the country and I must certainly say that South Africa is my second home,” Nascimento went on to say.

“I want to promise Mamelodi Sundowns that I want to help the Club win more titles starting with the League and Nedbank Cup this season. I also want Sundowns to win the CAF Champions League and make more history,” he added.
