After months of speculation about his future, the Siya crew can confirm that Moroka Swallows defender, Luvhengo Mungomeni, will remain with the club after signing a new contract.
As reported by the Siya crew earlier, Mungomeni’s brother, Chief Mungomeni, was scheduled to have talks with Swallows CEO, Leon Prins, about the defender’s future with the Birds. Subsequent to these talks, Prins confirmed to the crew that Mungomeni had signed a long-term contract with Swallows.
“Mungomeni is staying with us. He has signed a long-term contract and I’m happy to have managed to keep him. He is a good player,” Prins told the crew.
Several PSL teams including AmaZulu, Maritzburg United, Polokwane City and Wits were believed to be interested to the 29-year-old former Mamelodi Sundowns defender, but Mungomeni will stay with Swallows for now.
Meanwhile, Prins has confirmed that goalkeeper, Igor Bondzulic, has gone back home to Serbia after Swallows decided against taking up the renewal option on his contract.
Bondzulic become the second foreign player to leave Swallows, after Giorgi Nergadze also returned home to Georgia after the club decided not to renew his contract.
