Pfumbidzai seals Bloem Celtic deal


Bloemfontein Celtic have agreed to sign Zimbabwean left-back Ronald Pfumbidzai to bolster their defence.

The defender, who previously had a trial at Kaizer Chiefs but failed to make the grade, was assessed by Celtic during the club’s pre-season training.

Pfumbidzai’s representative, Michael Ngobeni from M Sport Management, confirmed that the 22-year-old will turn out in the green and white colours of Celtic in the 2017-18 season.

“The boy is a Celtic player. Everything has been agreed. He is due to land in the country anytime from now,” Ngobeni said.

Following his trial with the Glamour Boys in 2015, the left-back was signed by Denmark’s Hobro IK after he was not offered a contract at Naturena.

He later enjoyed a stint with Zimbabwe’s Caps United, before the Siwelele deal came to fruition.

Siwelele, as the team is affectionately called, is now coached by Veselin Jelusic.
