Bloemfontein Celtic have handed their talismanic 33-year-old captain Ndumiso Mabena a new two-year deal.
Mabena’s deal with Cetltic was set to expire in June 2022, however, the latest contract extension will see him remain at the Mangaung outfit until June 2024‚ with the club ensuring they tie down one of their core players.
Mabena has been a vital part of the Bloemfontein Celtic side, which has managed to reach two cup finals in a matter of months, when they reached both the Nedbank Cup and the MTN8 final last year.
“Bloemfontein Celtic is delighted to announce that Ndumiso Mabena has extended his stay at the club until June 2024. The journey continues!
#SiweleleSummer #LoveSiwelele,” the club announced on their official Twitter account.
This is the second extension in two years, after the former Orlando Pirates man signed an improved, three-year deal back in 2019, putting an end to rumours that he was on his way out of the club.
Celtic have been working overtime to ensure that they hold onto their best players amid the two-window transfer ban handed down by FIFA, after the club was found guilty of unfairly dismissing former captain Patrick Tignyemb.
Last week the crew reported that Jackson Mabokgwane penned a new two-year deal with an option for a further year that will keep him at the club until 2023.
