Mabunda: Mamelodi Sundowns part ways with long-serving midfielder

The 33-year-old leaves Masandawana after eight success-filled seasons although punctuated by a loan stint at Free State Stars

Veteran midfielder Tiyani Mabunda has confirmed his departure from Mamelodi Sundowns and hinted at returning to Chloorkop as a coach.

Mabunda leaves Sundowns after winning five Premier Soccer League titles with them but could not be credited for a sixth one after failing to make a single appearance in last season’s league triumph.

He also helped the Brazilians to the 2016 Caf Champions League, Caf Super Cup, a Nedbank Cup and a Telkom Knockout trophy.
