Rabale speaks on dream move to Sundowns
LESOTHO National Women’s soccer captain Boitumelo Rabale has said she is delighted after completing a move to South African Football Association (SAFA) National Women’s League champions – Mamelodi Sundowns on a two-year deal.
The 24-year-old affectionately known as ‘Queen’, was unveiled by Sundowns on Friday. She returns to the SAFA National Women’s League after a successful spell in the United States of America (USA) where she was named the 2020 Junior College-All American National Women’s Player of the Year after her exploits with Clark and Community College. She has previously captained Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies to the then Sasol League National League Championship in 2016 and 2017.
“I’m very happy to have joined Sundowns, I have been waiting for this opportunity for a long time,” Rabale said.
“I have already started training with the team and the reception has been very good. Having two of my former teammates from Celtic at Sundwons also made the process a bit easier for me and I’m looking forward to a successful journey with the club.”
Rabale’s move to Sundowns has been welcomed by Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) president Salemane Phafane who wished her well on her new journey.
“LeFA is delighted with the development of Rabale’s career as the captain of our senior national women’s team. She has been a good ambassador for women’s football and we wish her success in her new journey with Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies,” Phafane said. -LeFA
