Vilakazi “honoured” to sign new contract


Bafana Bafana international Sibusiso Vilakazi says he is “honoured” to be granted the opportunity to play for Mamelodi Sundowns again after putting pen to paper on a new deal.

The attacking midfielder was handed a new four-year contract by Sundowns until 2024, as confirmed by the club on Friday.

Vilakazi was signed by Sundowns from Bidvest Wits in 2016 and has established himself as one of the best players in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

“I am honoured, I am humbled and I am excited to be given another opportunity to play for this great team,” said the Soweto-born star.

“I would like to thank the President (Dr Patrice Motsepe), the board for trusting and having faith in me and also my coach (Pitso Mosimane), the technical team, my teammates for playing a part as well in me given this opportunity,” he added.

The 31-year-old has enjoyed a great deal of success in the colours of Sundowns with two League titles, the Telkom Knockout and CAF Super Cup.

“The story continues, I am here to win trophies and more trophies are coming. Ka Bo Yellow,” concluded ‘Vila’, who has scored five goals and provided eight assists in the 2019/20 league campaign.

With the Absa Premiership set to resume on the 11th of August after a three-month Covid-19 break, ‘The Brazilians’ in second place on the table, are only four points adrift of leaders Kaizer Chiefs and have a game in hand.
