Ex-Sundowns Man Secures Norwegian Return
Mame Niang Has Signed For Kongsvinger In Norway
Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Mame Niang, has secured a return to Norway as he put pen to paper on a contract with Kongsvinger IL for the third time.
The forward, who recently turned 33, left Stellenbosch FC at the end of the 2016/17 season following their disappointing defeat in the PSL’s promotional play-offs but hasn’t wasted time in finding himself a new deal.
This spell will be Niang’s third with Kongsvinger, who are in the second division, having played for them between 2010 and 2011, again in 2016 and now for the second half of the 2017 season.
Speaking to the Siya crew, Niang explained that the club wanted him back even more now, saying, “I've signed a short term deal here... They wanted me back since I left before, but because I had a bit of a knee injury I wasn't guaranteed a deal. When I came back they saw I have been playing without problem at Stellenbosch so they offered me a new deal.
“I still think I have two more years in me, and maybe I'll be back in South Africa someday.”
Niang has played for Moroka Swallows, SuperSport United, University of Pretoria, Sundowns and Stellenbosch in the Absa Premiership and National First Division.
