Mayambela Advises Celtic Signing

Bloemfontein Celtic’s new signing Alfred Ndengane is hoping that the advice given to him by Mark Mayambela will help him grow from strength to strength at the club.

The 25-year-old central defender has been playing his football at FC Cape Town in the National First Division and signed for Celtic on transfer window deadline day.

He has been on the radar of the club for some time, but the Siya crew understands that Phunya Sele Sele had to beat off stiff competition from other PSL teams who were interested in the player’s services. Ndengane made his debut in the weekend’s 2-0 win over Free State Stars when he came on in the place of Musa Nyatama in the 87th minute.  

An excited Ndengane told the crew, “The one person who made the deal happen is John Comitis. He worked really hard behind the scenes and I’m really grateful for the opportunity. Not everyone gets given a chance like this, especially if you come from Cape Town. When it happens, you just don’t believe it. 

"I was speaking to Mark Mayambela just 30 minutes ago and he was telling me how it is in Bloemfontein, how to handle the life here and how Bloemfontein people love the team. He said it is a privilege to play for such a club and that the fans love their team with a passion.”

The Khayelitsha-born player added, “I was happy to get a chance in such a high-profile game. I treated it as a normal game and didn’t have any nerves. I’m grateful to the coach for giving me the opportunity and I will continue to do my best to help the team move up the league table.”
