Ngobeni On Trial With Sundowns

Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni has surfaced at Mamelodi Sundowns, where he is attending a trial under the watchful eye of coach Pitso Mosimane and his technical team.

Ngobeni has been unlucky in his search for a new club since having parted ways with Chiefs at the end of last season, although a potential deal with the Chloorkop-based side is now on the cards.

 

The 24-year-old recently spent some time training with University of Pretoria, although the Steve Barker-coached side did not offer him a deal.

 

Sundowns have goalkeepers Calvin Marlin and Dennis Onyango currently struggling with injury and  the side is looking to add some cover in their keeper department. The two goalkeepers picked up their respective injuries during the team’s recent tour of Zimbabwe, in preparations for the second half of the season. 

 

With the team having a big game against Kaizer Chiefs on February 12, when the league action resumes, Downs’  technical team are assessing if Ngobeni is able to deputise for Wayne Sandilands in the first team.

 

The player’s agent, Walter Mokoena, confirmed to the Siya crew that club have expressed an interest in the former under-20 international. “Look, there was talk that Sundowns could be interested. It’s possible. It’s just that I’ve been busy with a lot of things,” said Mokoena. 


Mosimane was forced to use Zimbabwean goalkeeper, Liberty Chirava of Chicken Inn FC, for the two of their club friendlies while on tour, as a result of the goalkeeping crisis.

 

Ngobeni played for the club’s reserve team this week, defeating SuperSport United.
