Cranes captain extends Sundowns stay

Uganda Cranes skipper Denis Masinde Onyango has extended his employment contract with South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns.

Africa’s number one put pen to paper on a four and half years deal with the Brazilians. Onyango joined the club in 2011 from Mpumalanga Black Aces before he was loaned to Bidvest Wits for more playing time.

In 2016, he was voted the best African based player on the continent beating Khama Billiat for the accolade at a glamorous event held in Nigeria.

Onyango was also ranked 10th in the same year in World by the International Federation of football history and statistics. Last year he was named on the best African XI.

The custodian has guided Uganda Cranes to two successive Africa Cup of Nations finals (2017 and 2019) and is yet to concede in the ongoing qualification campaign.

At Sundowns, he has won several trophies which include ABSA Premiership title, CAF Champions league trophy and Super Cup. He has also previously featured at SC Villa, St. George ( Ethiopia), SuperSport United, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Bidvest Wits all of South Africa.
