Banyana Banyana star, Thembi Kgatlana announced that her time with SL Benfica has come to an end.
July has been a celebratory month for South Africa’s Women’s national team stars, as the likes of Janine van Wyk, Amanda Mthandi and Nothando Vilakazi all put pen to paper on European deals.
Van Wyk joined Scottish giants, Glascow Celtic, while Mthandi and Vilakazi signed deals in Spain with Badajoz and EDF Logroño respectively.
However, Kgatalana has since announced that she’s parted ways with Portuguese side, Benfica, this after joining the club in January this year from Beijing BG Phoenix.
She took to her official Twitter account and said, “My time with Benfica has come to an end,” to which her representative, Chris Atkins added, “Can confirm Kgatlana has left SL Benfica. Covid-19 has had a big impact on the women's game but Thembi will go from strength to strength regardless. The next steps are in place and will be announced shortly.”
