Sundowns Star Joins TS Galaxy

Mamelodi Sundowns attacking midfielder, Sibusiso Vilakazi, is officially joining TS Galaxy.

On Thursday, 14 July, Galaxy announced on its Twitter page that Vilakazi had completed his signing with the club.The length of this deal and the accompanying salary have not yet been disclosed.

The signing marks the end of Vilakazi’s six-year stint with Sundowns, whom he joined from Bidvest Wits in 2016.

During his time there, the 32-year-old helped the Brazilians win five league titles, as well as the 2016 CAF Champions League, two Nedbank Cups, the Telkom KnockOut championship, and the MTN8 title.

Last season, however, Vilakazi made only eight league and five cup appearances last season, as he was plagued by injuries, which coach Manqoba Mngqithi previously said made it “difficult [for him] to come back to the team” from time to time.

Thus, Vilakazi’s contract was not renewed when it expired in June. At least now that he’s a part of Galaxy, he will get in the playing time he missed out on with Sundowns!
