Ndengane extends Celtic contract

Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic defender Bulelani Ndengane is happy to have signed a new and improved deal with the club for the next two years.

Ndengane joined Phunya Sele Sele from National First Division side FC Cape Town during the 2013/14 season.

The contract renewal comes as a reward for his tireless efforts in the heart of defence for Serame Letsoaka's side last season.

"I was extremely excited after being offered an improved contract and that made me realise that Celtic values my contribution," Ndengane told the club's website.

"I have humongous winning mentality, I am fearless and yet extremely humble. My strength comes from God."

The 29-year-old also reflected on their below-par 2015/16 campaign, which saw Siwelele fail to finish in the top eight, much to the frustration of their fans.

"Once you fail to achieve something as a team, supporters will be despondent and understandably so," he added.

"We tried our level best, when coach Serame Letsoaka came during the season, we took time to gel and to get used to his system.

"But what is great is that we eventually got used to the system and when we finished the season, we were playing brilliant football and winning games.

"What is good is the fact the bulk or should I say the core of the team has been retained. That means we will be lethal and very competitive this coming season."
