Daniel "Mambush" Mudau and the Sundowns management have finally come to an agreement over the veteran striker's future at the club.
Madau's contract with the Pretoria-based side expired on September 30, and although the club offered him a a pay-per-game offer, the player was said to be unhappy at this proposal and it seemed increasingly likely that he would part ways with the team.
But the powers that be in the Brazilian camp have now stepped in to make sure that the 35-year-old remains at the club for at least another season, which is confirmed by the following statement on the official Sundowns website:
"Sundowns FC have reached agreement with Daniel Mudau to extend his contract for a further season.We are happy to announce that Mudau has renewed his contract with the club details of which cannot be disclosed as it is a personal matter between the player and the club."
Mudau's leadership skills, vast experience and goal-scoring abilities will come as a welcome boost to coach Oscar Fullone, as the team has been going through a rocky period this season - having being knocked out of the Coca Cola Cup by Swallows and languishing in 13th position on the Castle Premiership log with only one win to their credit.
"Mambush" made his debut for Downs way back in 1992 and has sinced played 374 games for the club and has scored 169 goals in the process.
The Sundowns legend has also made 16 appearances and scored three goals for Bafana Bafana.
