PSL : Mark Mayambela joins the Urban Warriors
Ajax Cape Town are ecstatic to announce the signing of Mark Mayambela.
The fervently exciting player spent time training with Roger De Sa and his PSL squad in recent weeks and have engaged in the team’s training matches as well, where he stood out remarkably showing copious amounts of experience.
Mayambela spent his entire youth career in Cape Town, where he became known for his trickery and goal scoring prowess. The lanky framed player, with a well-educated left foot was on initially on trial at Ikamva at the age of 19, however, he later emerged as a professional player in 2007 with Bloemfontein Celtic, where Mayambela went on to produce some magical moments and remained with Siwelele for three seasons. In 2010, Soweto giants Orlando Pirates acquired the services of Mayambela, enjoying some wonderful moments under the guidance of then Pirates head coach Roger De Sa.
The Khayelitsha-born player went on to grace the European stages with Swedish top tier side Djurgårdens IF, where he instantly became a fan-favourite when the Swedish outfit’s supporters saw the attacking threat posed by Mayambela, thus earning himself his very own song by the fans in the tune of wildly popular Spanish song La Bamba.
Now, Mark Mayambela returns home to Cape Town, joining the club he was destined to play for! Ajax Cape Town would love to see the amazing supporters from Khayelitsha at Cape Town Stadium, showing some love for one of their very own.
The 28-year-old playmaker has been very impressive in training with the Urban Warriors in recent weeks and has also impressed Roger De Sa and his technical team in a number of training matches, showing his vast experience and sharing some inimitable moments with some of the younger players in the squad.
With a long list of admirers, Mark Mayambela chose the Red-and-White of Ajax Cape Town, the club is certain that he will be a huge success and adored by the club’s supporters, as well as gaining some new supporters with the acquisition of this fantastic player.
