The well-travelled former Bafana Bafana‚ SuperSport United‚ Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits stylish midfielder is in the twilight of his career and certainly no stranger to the limelight.
After a few years in the wilderness since he left Wits in 2013‚ Mngomeni will be thrust back into the spotlight as a key member of Magic FC in Port Elizabeth.
Since leaving Wits six years ago‚ Mngomeni fell out of love with the game until he was recruited by Magic FC and he joined the ABC Motsepe League side in 2017.
“Obviously I will not be the same as I was a few years ago but the determination and skills are still there‚” he said with a laugh‚ adding that he has matured with time and takes his responsibilities as a senior player seriously.
“I have matured over the years as a human being and it is the same with my football even though I am playing in a lower division.
“My decision-making is much better and that rubs off on the younger players in the team who look up to me for guidance.
