Rebirth Of Ovono, Top Gong For Ex-Pirates Keeper

Former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Felipe Ovono is doing well in reviving his career, after he recently won a top award.  

Following his unsuccessful stint with Pirates between July 2015 and January 2017, the 26-year-old Equatorial Guinea keeper left South Africa and moved on to Ethiopia, where he has made notable progress in the last two years, playing for top tier league club Mekelle Ketema.

During his time with the Buccaneers, Ovono had been criticised for some of his mistakes, which cost the team points in crucial matches. 

However, all of his troubles seem to be a thing of the past as he has become a household name in Ethiopia and one of the top players in the league, having won the Goalkeeper of the Year award for two seasons in succession.

“Yeah, he just won the Ethiopia Goalkeeper of the Season award,” Ovono’s Mzansi-based representative Sipho Shaven proudly confirmed.

Ovono believes that in his first stint in Mzansi he learnt much in the short period of time, and having gained more experienced and improved his game where he is currently plying his trade, he feels would be ready for another opportunity in the Absa Premiership.
