On-and-off Flames forward Robin Ngalande has said joining an Ethiopian club Saint George SC will make him active and marketable.
“I moved to Ethiopia in November and I joined one of the biggest Ethiopian clubs. It has been amazing so far. We have been doing well,” he said.
Ngalande said he joined Saint George SC after consulting his manager Paul Michel of Siyavuma Sports Group and family.
“Actually we had a discussion with my agent that if I spent another year idle at home it won’t be a good idea for my career. We opted to join this biggest club in Ethiopia. One of the reasons was the coach who came here. He asked if I could join,” he said.
Ngalande had a dream-start in Ethiopia, where he scored on his debut as his side defeated Dire Dawa Kenema 3-1 on December 25.
The versatile forward joined the Ethiopian club recently after spending almost a year without a club following the expiry of his contract with Azerbaijan side.
Ngalande left the country after he was spotted by South Africa’s DStv Premiership giants Mamelodi Sundowns before Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid Academy scouted him.
He was once touted as the next Etoo after pundits likened him to the Cameroonian legend while at Atletico Madrid Academy.
The former Civil Service United also played for South Africa’s Ajax Cape Town FC and Platinum FC before moving to Baroka FC on a three-year deal.
However, he only played for Baroka for one year before clinching a deal with Zira.
