'Figo’ Attracts PSL Interest
Midfield Workaholic Attracting PSL Interest
Jomo Cosmos’ Linda ‘Figo’ Mntambo is attracting interest from the PSL, as the January transfer window looms.
As reported in edition 1053 of Soccer Laduma, the midfielder is being monitored by current Absa Premiership champions, Bidvest Wits, according to sources.
It is believed that The Students are keen on strengthening their team with the player’s services for their title defence campaign.
Mntambo, 28, has been impressive with his performances and high work-rate for Cosmos in their pursuit of promotion to the PSL this season.
The Ezenkosi captain has scored five goals already this season and his fifth goal was the winner for Jomo Sono’s side in their 2-1 win over Royal Eagles this past weekend.
“Wits are interested in Linda ‘Figo’ Mntambo. The player is being monitored by the club. He is a good player. I know of someone who has been tasked with talking to the player about a possible move to Wits,” said the source.
Mntambo was called up to Bafana Bafana for the 2018 African Nations Championship (Chan) qualifiers earlier this year.
