Banyana Banyana defender Mbane joins Belarusian side Minsk

By Agnes Amondi,

Belarusian champions FC Dynamo Minskby has landed the signature of South African defender Bambanani Mbane from South African side Bloemfontein Celtic on a one year deal.

Mbane completed her move after a successful medical and agreeing to personal terms with Volodymyr Reva’s team this week.

The 29-year-old became the third South African to join the Belarusian Women’s Premier League club after the duo of Rachel Sebati and Letago Madiba last season.

Her signing will boost the team as they bid to extend their domestic dominance in Belarus and qualify for the Women’s Champions League campaign later this year.

She becomes the sixth South African to move to Europe after their exploits in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France last summer after Ode Fulutudilu, Refiloe Jane, Jermaine Seoposenwe, Linda Motlhalo and Thembi Kgatlana.
