Jomo Cosmos owner and Head Coach, Jomo Sono says his club Captain, Linda “Figo” Mntambo finally got the recognition he deserved by being called up to the national team.
Figo was invited to the local Bafana Bafana squad ahead of next weekend’s crucial Chan Championship qualifier at home to Zambia, and the former Bafana coach is not surprised that the 28-year-old midfielder will be taking his game to an even higher level.
“Personally I think Figo deserves it because he’s such a hardworking player, and above all he’s a very disciplined and highly committed individual,” Jomo said.
Mntambo joined Jomo Cosmos three seasons ago, and he has assumed a huge play making role due to his consistency and vision.
His influence and commanding role in midfield has also convinced Bra J that he has all it takes to be a leader, hence his recent appointment as new Ezenkosi Captain.
