Kgatlana moves to Atletico Madrid Fememino

Banyana Banyana sensation striker Thembi Kgatlana has moved to Atletico Madrid Fememino from Eibar on a massive 3-year deal.
Kgatlana spent one year with Eibar where she proved a big hit.

The 25-year old star has been playing in big leagues around the world and is determined to put South African women’s football on the international map. 
Her latest move to Atletico Madrid is another addition to her ever-growing stature.

The 2018 Africa Women’s Footballer of the Year, has now played for Spanish side Eibar, Portuguese champions SL Benfica, Houston Dash and Beijing BG Phoenix.

“She had a fantastic season at Eibar but I am super excited and looking forward to the next stage of Thembi’s growth,” said Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis.

“She knows exactly what her next steps are to make her one of the best players around the world,” added Ellis.
The Banyana Banyana coach said the good thing with Kgatlana’s latest move was that she would be playing with other African stars.

“She has joined a top team and will be playing alongside Rasheedat (Nigeria) and Ajara (Cameroon) which will make for an exciting strike force in trying to bring back the glory to the club whose men’s team has just won the league and hopefully they can follow that success in the next season. We are super proud and may God continue to elevate her,” said Ellis.
