Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Sipho Mbule says he is ready to elevate his game and play at the highest level after joining the Brazilians from Tshwane rivals SuperSport United.
The 24-year-old completed his move from United to Sundowns after by signing a three-year contract with Bafana Ba Style ahead of the new season.
Mbule is the latest player from SuperSport to join Masandawana after former teammates Grant Kekana, Aubrey Modiba and Teboho Mokoena.
The central midfielder brings a wealth of experience after he racked up a total of 100 appearances across all competitions, while scoring 11 goals and assisting a further 10 during his stint at United.
On the international stage, Mbule has represented SA at U17, U20 and U23 levels before making his debut for the senior national team under then coach Stuart Baxter on 22 July 2017.
“I think the move to Sundowns, it’s like Sundowns are a team that have dominated over the years. They have a lot of good players and what’s more is that they are competing at the highest level. I was playing Caf at SuperSport but we didn’t qualify for the next season and I’ve reached the final with them but I can do more with Sundowns,” Mbule told the club’s YouTube channel.
“That is why I joined Sundowns, I want to play on the highest level and I want to win trophies.
“Winning trophies is a nice thing, it’s a nice feeling, it’s every player’s dream. It’s an achievement that you can look up to at the end of the day. I won two MTN8 [trophies] with SuperSport United and I lost the [Caf] Confederations Cup final.
“Coming here to Sundowns, it’s like I am going to add more to my tally, from two to maybe more. I think I’m looking forward to playing with everyone because they have the best players and they are looking for the best players and I think what I am bringing to Sundowns is the talent that they saw at SuperSport.”
