Cape Town - Bafana
Bafana defender Anele Ngcongca has revealed why he chose to join
Mamelodi Sundowns, despite garnering interest from Kaizer Chiefs.
Masandawana confirmed the acquisition of the 28-year-old defender,
who is expected to fill the void left by Ramahlwe Mphahlele - who joined
Chiefs during the recent transfer window.
"I have been talking to some teams, but I was convinced by one coach... coach Pitso," he said on SABC SportAt10
"I had been talking to him for over a year from when I had problems with the coach at Genk [Peter Maes]," he added.
The defender highlighted that Chiefs weren't as serious as Sundowns were regarding his services.
"No look, I spoke to my agent and I will let him speak about that...
but yeah, I spoke to Chiefs, but you know what, the team that was more
serious about signing me was Sundowns."
"I'm a simple player. A player who works hard, so they [Sundowns
fans] can expect consistency; I am not a player who will play two games
on a high and two games down. I like to stay on the same level and of
course I will do my best for the team," he concluded.
Ngcongca became the club's sixth signing of the transfer window,
following the additions of Yannick Zakri, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Lucky
Mohomi, Thapelo Morena and Ricardo Nascimento.
