Former Sundowns Midfielder Seeing Out Season In Cyprus

Former Mamelodi Sundowns Midfielder Seeing Out Season In Cyprus

By Soccer Laduma - Nov 14, 2017 02:38 PM

Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder is currently seeing out the rest of the 2017/18 campaign in Cyprus.

Flavio Bento, who previously turned out for Sundowns’ MultiChoice Diski Challenge side in the 2016/17 campaign, is currently in Cyprus, where he signed a one-year deal with APEP Pitsilia.

The player’s father, Zelo Bento revealed that the player’s move to Cyprus came following Masandawana’s decision to not extend the player’s contract at the Chloorkop-based club.

“The move to Cyprus happened when Flavio knew (that) Sundowns were not going to extend his contract, so his ambition was to move straight back to Europe,” Bento told Soccer Laduma.

“In the three years that Flavio Bento was at Sundowns, he was always in contact with various international football people, particularly with a British coach, who followed his career closely. It was then when Flavio’s contract came to an end (with Sundowns) where he was invited to be part of a selection (team) to play in Cyprus. Flavio accepted and left immediately.

“The team doing pre-season in Cyprus was a 'selection' team with players released from professional academies in England. So Flavio then met up with them in Cyprus and played a few games with them, scored a few goals and was approached by Apep Pitsilia.

“He signed with the team because he had heard how Portuguese players are highly rated and looked after in Cyprus. His ambitions are to move up divisions in the next year, as he only signed a one year contract with APEP,” Bento concluded.
