Rashid Sumaila signs five-year deal for Sundowns ahead of June departure

Posted On Friday, 15th February 2013

Ghana defender Rashid Sumaila has signed a five-year contract with South African Premier Soccer League side Mamelodi Sundowns but it will be activated in June.

The centre-back impressed on a two-week trial but will be available for the Brazilians in the summer. 

Sumaila scored a goal in one of Sundowns’ mid-season training matches and claimed a starting role for himself.

The 21-year-old impressed head coach Pitso Mosimane with his hard tackling and he is sturdy built.

If his registration is completed in June, Sumaila will become the third Ghanaian player with the Chloorkop side after Emmanuel Baffour and Mumuni Abubakar.

He is currently on loan at Ghanaian champions Asante Kotoko from Ebusua Dwarfs.

Sumaila was named in Ghana’s pre-Africa Cup of Nations squad but was dropped at the team’s tournament camping in Abu Dhabi.

The former Ghana youth international was a member of historic 2011 All Africa Games gold medal winning team in Maputo, Mozambique.
