The 27-year-old recently returned from a short-term loan at Tshwane rivals SuperSport United. But it seems that he could once again be on his way out of the club.
According to his coach Pitso Mosimane , the Botswana international is struggling to fit in, and with the competition at Sundowns rife, the club are considering sending him sending him out on loan.
Since joining Sundowns in 2015 from Platinum Stars, Ngele was also previously loaned out to Bidvest Wits where he picked up a Premier Soccer League (PSL) title winning medal.
“He is struggling to fit in,” Mosimane told reporters.
“We have to do what we have to do, and I think we will probably have to give him a chance to play somewhere (else),” he admitted.
“But he must want to play also, he must fight … we can help him but he must also help himself,” he continued.
Mosimane though, has not ruled out a future for Ngele at the club, suggesting that if he works hard, he could find his way back into Sundowns’ first team.
“It goes both ways, he must show he wants to play, everybody has to improve,” he added.
“He is up against very good players on the wings, he is up against Gaston Sirino, Themba Zwane, Toni Silva, and as a No 10 he is up against the likes of Sibusiso Vilakazi,” the 53-year-old tactician explained.
“We must also understand that it was a little bit difficult for him because Khama Billiat was there, Percy Tau was there, so it was not easy to find those places when those two guys were there and we have to be honest,” he concluded.
