Mngomeni spent a season and a half in Sweden with Helsingborgs IF and made 29 appearances before returning to South Africa claiming he could not cope.

He returned to Santos after semi-retirement and impressed with some good performances during the 2007/08 season. He signed for Mamelodi Sundowns and moved to Bidvest Wits after a year and half.

He is currently playing in Cape Town for a 2nd division club, Magic FC.

International career

He has so far been capped five times.

Interest outside football

Thando Mngomeni has acquired shares in an online soccer/football community called TheSoccerPages.Com to begin a career as a blogger and commentator.

He has taken on a role as co-host of a monthly live soccer/football talk show called Diski Nites in Cape Town.

He is also consulting with youth players helping them one-on-one with advice and skills training.
