Once regarded as one of the best emerging midfielders in the country, Thamsanqa Sangweni’s football career has seen him move from one club to the next, and his latest home is at BCM Stars FC.
The ABC Motsepe League side confirmed his signing on Tuesday afternoon.
“The club is pleased to announce the signing of Thamsanqa Sangweni. Thamsanqa Sangweni previously played for teams such as Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Chippa United. Welcome Thami Sangweni,” the club posted on their social media platforms.
BCM plays in the third tier of South African football in stream B in the Eastern Cape, where they are joint leaders with Sinenkani FC. The clubs are on 24 points after 11 games, with BCM leading the way thanks to a better goal difference.
Sangweni, who is now 32 years old, started his career with AmaZulu FC in 2009, before playing with Mamelodi Sundowns, Ajax Cape Town, Chippa United, Orlando Pirates, Richards Bay FC, Maritzburg United, Mbabane Zwaluwen and TS Sporting.
Sangweni is the younger brother of former Golden Arrows and Pirates defender Siyabonga Sangweni, who was forced to retire from football after a knee injury.
As the old brother had quite a successful career, especially with the Buccaneers, Thamsanqa was expected to shine as well. on loan before finally being signed by Bucs in 2017.
However, the midfielder failed to impress for Pirates and ended up staying with the club for only one year, eventually returning to the Chilli Boys.
Sangweni joins BCM after parting ways with TS Sporting last month, having joined the club in August last year.
