With only four months left on his current contract at Mamedodi Sundowns, Anele Ngcongca says that his agent Mike Makaab of Prosport International is busy negotiating with the club for a new deal.
However, the veteran defender admitted that there is a disagreement on the contract terms as he wants a two or more years extension while Sundowns is offering a year.
“My agent [Mike Makaab] is busy [negotiating] with Sundowns. To be honest, [the disagreement] is not about money. I can say that it’s the number of years we’re not agreeing on, I want two and at the moment they’ve given me one,” Ngcongca told Sihle Ndebele of Sowetan.
The 32-year-old didn’t rule out a possible move back to Europe where played for KRC Genk in Jupiler Pro League (Belgium) and French side Troyes.
“Look, I am experienced enough, if we don’t come to the agreement, I will see what I’ll do. At the moment I am focused on finishing the season, we will take it from there,” said Ngcongca.
“I have a great relationship in Europe, and I am still in touch with many people there, especially those who’re involved in coaching. But at this moment, I am fully focused on the job at hand, that’s helping Sundowns win games.”
Ngcongca who joined Sundowns back in 2016 is currently sidelined due to a groin injury. He has made 26 appearances for the ‘Brazilians’ this season in all competitions.
Sundowns will play against Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership match at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday, kickoff at 19:30.
