“I have been out of football for months but I’m eager to get back to scoring goals for my new team,” Manqele told the Chippa United official website.
Manqele will wear jersey number 38 for the Chilli Boys.
Manqele signed for Sundowns from Free State Stars in time for the 2012/13 season, but failed to make much of an impact at Choorklop, netting just four times in league and cup.
He moved on loan to Moroka Swallows last season, and fared far better, banging in 12 goals in all competitions. Manqele has been in a dispute with Sundowns over his contract this season, but has final clinched a move to Port Elizabeth, where the 27 year-old will hope to revive his career.
