New Mamelodi Sundowns recruit Bongi Ntuli is ready to take on the new Absa Premiership season as a Sundowns player. The KwaZulu-Natal-born striker who played for Golden Arrows last season joined the Brazilians in June after the transfer window reopened. “I feel very lucky and blessed to have joined one of the great football clubs in South Africa,” said Ntuli.
The 23-year old striker won’t have difficulties to adjust to the team’s style of play and management as it has Manqoba Mngqithi as part of technical team. Mngqithi was coaching him while he was still with Abafana Best’hende. Ntuli missed an opportunity to taste Sundowns style of play on Saturday during the Gauteng Cup due to an injury he picked on camp in Zimbabwe.
Sundowns will kick off the new season against Maritzburg United on 8 August at Loftus Stadium.
