SOCCER NEWS - Chippa United have confirmed the signing of former Bafana Bafana midfielder Luyolo Nomandela, who last played in the DStv Premiership with Cape Town City in the 2016/17 season.
The 31-year-old had been playing at second-tier Mthatha Bucks and then ABC Motsepe League side BCM Stars in recent seasons, but is now back in the big time with Chippa.
“We are pleased to have beefed up our squad with another player of talent and experience. Luyolo will also play an integral role in our squad for the remainder of the 2020/21 South African football campaign,” said new interim coach Siyabulela Gwambi.
Nomandela was also previously with Free State Stars, Mamelodi Sundowns, Moroka Swallows and Jomo Cosmos, and has played twice for Bafana Bafana in friendly matches against Nigeria and Burkina Faso within days of each other in August 2013. He netted against the latter.
He will be in line to make his debut when Chippa host Mamelodi Sundowns in the DStv Premiership on Monday.
Meanwhile, the club have also confirmed that Greg Damons, Thami Sangweni and Nyiko Mobbie have returned from injury, while key defender Frederic Nsambiyumva will also be available again after international duty with Burundi.
