Marumo Gallants midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase has expressed his gratitude to the club management for affording him another opportunity to play in the Premiership.
Ntshangase has signed a two-year deal with the Limpopo club following a month-long trial.
The 28-year-old was released by Kaizer Chiefs in March this year after spending four unsuccessful seasons at the club.
He also had a two-week trial at Sekhukhune United but a move couldn’t materialise.
“I want to thank the club (Marumo) for giving me another opportunity. I miss playing football and I am happy to be back,” Ntshangase told FARPost.
“After leaving Kaizer Chiefs I have been working hard to get another chance and I finally got that chance here. I don’t have any point to prove to anyone, the only thing that pushes me is my family and the people that have actually supported me from the beginning.
“So, I don’t have any point to prove. I am just going to play my normal game and improve where I need to improve,” he said.
Ntshangase remains reluctant to talk about the reasons for his departure at Chiefs but insists it’s a closed chapter.
“For me that chapter is closed.”
“One thing that I am looking forward to is to use the opportunity that I have been given (by Marumo). That chapter is closed for me so it’s a new chapter for ‘Stash’ and I am looking forward to playing football.
“There is a lot that I still need to work on. What you saw (at training) you know what I am capable of so I need to improve on that and be more consistent,” added Ntshangase.
