An agent representing former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits star Jabulani ‘Jafefe’ Shongwe has confirmed that despite injury, the midfielder is able to resurrect his career at his new club.
Since parting ways with Highlands Park in 2019, Shongwe has not featured in top-flight football.
The 30-year-old has been offered a lifeline to resurrect his career in the second tier after signing with Royal AM, as confirmed his agent, Jazzman Mahlakgane.
“Jefefe’s injury isn’t as bad as initially thought and he should soon to be fine. He has just joined Royal AM and looking forward to playing for the team. It’s a knee injury but like I say it isn’t as bad. I’m sure by next week or so he should be back on the field and playing again,” said Mahlakgane.
Shongwe finished the 2019/20 season with Royal Eagles in KwaZulu-Natal, having joined the club on a short-term deal.
The Witbank-born player had an unsuccesful trial with Swallows at the start of the season and is now back in the second tier to re-establish himself.
