Tiyani Mabunda may remain at Mamelodi Sundowns after all, but Siya sources have suggested it would be in a different capacity.
As previously reported, the veteran midfielder did not have his contract at Chloorkop extended when it ended on June 30 and the likes of AmaZulu, Swallows, Sekhukhune United and SuperSport United were believed to have shown interest in his services.
But Downs are apparently keen to rope ‘Shuga’ into an ambassador role at the club, though the full details of what that entails are still a little sketchy at the moment.
Mabunda, 33, joined Sundowns from Black Leopards eight years ago and has won five league titles as well as the CAF Champions League trophy during his spell.
News that his contract had not been extended was no shock – Mabunda failed to make a single appearance for Downs all of last season.
