JOHANNESBURG – Banyana Banyana head coach Desiree Ellis is over the moon that three of her players will be playing in the Uefa Women’s Champions League this season.
The trio are forward Rhoda Mulaudzi, who has just signed for Apollon Ladies FC in Cyprus, as well as Jermaine Seoposenwe and Nothando Vilakazi, who are both on the books of Lithuania-based Gintra Universitetas.
“This is just great news,” said Ellis.
“We have always said that we need players who will consistently play at a high level, so we can be able to compete with the top footballing nations when we get to a competition like the World Cup.
“I would like to congratulate Rhoda on her move to Cyprus as this augurs well for the national team.
