Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have bolstered their goalkeeping department with the signing of experienced Ghanaian goalkeeper Brimah Razak.

Razak was Ghana’s first choice shot-stopper that played in the Africa Cup of Nations final against Ivory Coast, to which the Black Stars lost 8-9 on penalties.

For the majority of his career, the 30-year-old played in Portugal and Spain, with his last club being Cordoba FC.

According to the club’s official website, Razak penned a five-year-contract with Premiership giants.

Razak joins Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene and Thela Ngobeni on the goalkeeper roster following the departure of Wayne Sandilands.

With the intensity of participating on several fronts, domestic and continental, bolstering the goalkeeping position was critical for coach Pitso Mosimane, and the experience of Razak will come in handy on the continental stage.
