Bloemfontein - Bafana Bafana defender and Bloemfontein Celtic captain Thabo Nthethe has extended his stay with the Free State-based club for another three years.

The 29-year-old has been with the club for almost a decade now and has won two titles with Siwelele - the 2005 SAA Super 8 and the 2012 Telkom Knockout.

Celtic CEO, Khumbulani Konco, has expressed his delight at the skipper’s contract extension.

“Nthethe has been one of our most loyal players for nine years now and we are delighted that he has signed a further three year deal,” Konco told the supersport.com website.

“The club’s stance is to hold on to our best players and this shows that despite offers from other teams we managed to hold on to our captain,” he added.

Nthethe, who is away with the national team in Morocco, also shared his delights, saying Celtic is like a family to him.

“I am very happy to renew my contract with Bloemfontein Celtic. The club is like family to me and I am personally delighted to extend my term by a further three years,” said Nthethe.

Celtic have not enjoy the start of the PSL campaign this season and are currently occupying 11th spot with a single win out of the six games played, which also led to the resignation of head coach, Clinton Larsen, over the weekend.

Larsen handed in his resignation after a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout last 16.
