Mntambo has been working hard to break into the Orlando Pirates team and even though he has been struggling for game time, he has continued pushing the hustle.
After months of bleakness on the sidelines, he has not allowed that too slow down his game.
Now his progress at the Buccaneers is set to be rewarded with a new contract for the midfielder.
Coach Jozef Zinnbauer had shown great faith in Mntambo and his consistency is one of the reasons Pirates are making their mark in the DStv PSL.
“Nowadays you have to act fast when it comes to player’s contracts, especially those that are about to end. Mntambo has been doing well and surely there are other people who are monitoring him and might be interested. What usually happens is that a second party can come with a huge offer that a player can’t resist or it’s difficult to refuse, whereas the club is offering something better, but not on the same scale as the second party. I’m confident he will sign an extension,” said a club insider.
Since Mntambo joined Pirates from Jomo Sono's Jomo Cosmos, he has constantly been used as a substitute player.
But Zinnbauer has brought in a gleam of hope for him as he has been starting games lately and scoring important goals.
It is believed that Pirates management will sit down with the player to map out a new contract.
His current contract expires at the end of the season.
