Manqele pens Downs deal
Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed the capture of top marksman
Edward Manqele from Free State Stars, the striker penning a five-year
deal in Chloorkop.
Manqele has been a revelation since making his PSL debut for Ea
Lla Koto last season, firing home 11 league goals to finish the campaign
as the third most prolific striker in South Africa's top flight.
That form has seen the 25-year-old attract attention from Kaizer
Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, but the one-time Bafana Bafana player has
opted instead to join the Brazilians.
"We are delighted to have signed a player of Manqele's ability.
We believe that he will complement the players that we already have in
the team," Downs communications co-ordinator Thulani Thuswa told SuperSport.
"He is a good striker, whose off the ball movements impressed our technical team."
Manqele will link up with his new team-mates when the club kick-off their pre-season campaign in July.
