South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns FC have signed Ugandan goalkeeper Ismail Watenga as a free agent.
Watenga is expected to sign a three year deal with the Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions having left Kenyan Premier League side Sofapaka FC after a short stint with them in January as injuries denied him enough playtime.
The 25-year-old is expected to be loaned out by Mamelodi for the upcoming 2020/21 season as he continues his development in South Africa, according to football256.
Watenga will follow the footsteps of his senior compatriot Denis Masinde Onyango who has achieved legendary status with Masandawana since joining the club in 2011.
The highly-rated custodian left Vipers at the end of 2018 after he failed to renew his contract to join Ethiopian side Bunna FC. Watenga’s seven-year stay at Vipers saw him win two UPL titles and a domestic trophy before his exit.
Posnet Omwony is another Ugandan goalkeeper who made his name in the PSL at Bloemfontein FC and at Black Leopards.
