31 July2020 – Belarusian Premier League side FC Dinamo Minsk has signed Banyana Banyana duo of Rhoda Mulaudzi and Lebogang Ramalepe for the next 6 months.
The two join a host of other Banyana Banyana stars who have signed for overseas clubs following South Africa’s first ever FIFA World Cup participation in France last year.
“I am very excited about this new venture,” said Mulaudzi who has featured for clubs in Australia and Cyprus among others in her glittering career.
“We want to make our country proud and these type of contracts can only help our senior women’s national team grow from strength to strength. We will definitely come back home more matured and better players,” added the speedy striker.
Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis has made it clear that the signing of her players by overseas clubs can only make her team more competitive and improve that cutting edge required at international level.
Banyana Banyana lost to Nigeria in the finals of the 2018 AWCON finals in Ghana which booked them a ticket to France for their first ever FIFA World Cup qualification.
