Jomo Cosmos have confirmed the acquisition of Orlando Pirates defender Mbongeni Gumede.
Ezenkosi team manager Andrew “Jaws of Life” Rabutla told the Siya crew that they have signed the former Amajita captain for the remainder of the season. He said that the 19-year-old will help them solve their problem in the right back position.
“It is true we have signed Gumede from Pirates but I have to tell you that it is just a six month loan as we fight to gain promotion back to the PSL. I know him, he is a very good defender and still very young which means he still has a lot to offer.
“We wont be looking at signing many players because we already have a good squad but we need a right back and he was the right player to sign,” the former Bafana Bafana defender explained.
Gumede spent last season on loan at Sivutsa Stars in the National First Division but Pirates recalled him back at the start of the current season.
