Soccer – You have to spend big, to win big!


This seems to be the mantra of capital city giants Mbabane Highlanders who have already splashed out E70 000 on signing-on fees for their three latest acquisitions.


The players are midfielder Sibonginkosi ‘Gudas’ Dlamini, winger Siphosethu ‘Mjovo’ Mlotsa and Siwakhile Shongwe.


According to a source close to the matter, the trio has already received their signing-on fees from the team and is elated.


“The players are enjoying their signing-on fees which total about E70 000 for the trio. It goes without saying that they are happy with their new found fortunes,” said the source. Sought for comment, Mbabane Highlanders boss Chief Ally Kgomongwe also confirmed the news, mentioning how pleased he was that the trio had completed their deals with the team. “We are grateful that we have fulfilled our promise to pay our players, though, I cannot mention how much we have spent on them. We are now looking forward to seeing them make their debut during the restart of football,” he said.


Kgomongwe added that they were not done making signings and would add more in an effort to beef up their squad for the upcoming season. He maintained that his goal is to bring back continental action to the historic club.


“It’s my wish to bring the glory days at Highlanders. It's been a long time since the team participated in Africa, so we have to make sure that we return to continental tournaments. This obviously means we have to add more depth to the squad and we will make a couple more signings,” he said.


Meanwhile, the 2019/20 SMVAF Ingwenyama Cup runners-up are in the quarter finals of the EswatiniBank Cup whereby they are expected to face Malanti Chiefs when football returns to action.


This competition comes with high stakes and is highly rated as the Cup winners get a ticket to the Confederation Cup competition.
