Sibusiso Mthethwa has joined a new club for the 2018/19 season after parting ways with Platinum Stars.
The 27-year-old defender has PSL experience, having previously turned out for the likes of University of Pretoria and Free State Stars during his career, and is one of the players that left Dikwena at the end of last season, following the team's relegation to the NFD before being renamed Cape Umoya United and relocating to Cape Town.
Mthethwa has now joined Stellenbosch FC for their National First Division campaign, under the mentorship of Steve Barker, as confirmed by his agent Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi.
"I can confirm that Sibusiswa Mthethwa has joined Stellenbosch FC. He has signed a one-year deal with an option. The reason I decided that Stellenbosch FC was a good team for the player is because the club told me about their plans and I was convinced that it would be good to be part of their project," confirmed Mulovhedzi.
"I believe that the club is on the right track with their plans to gain promotion to the PSL. When I was invited by the club to come over to negotiate the deal, I was impressed with their set-up, professionalism and their goals. Over and above that, the club signed the player without trial and that also impressed me.
"I can confirm that the player trained with Highlands Park before he signed with Stellenbosch. The coach at Highlands Park was impressed with him but they were taking time to make a decision. Stellenbosch was a good option for the boy. The club made us a good offer that matched what some of the PSL teams offer for players of his quality," concluded the Rush Hour Sports Management agent.
