Hengombe joins Tigers

12 October 2018 | Sports

Former Young African midfielder Himeezembi Hengombe has joined his friend Romario Ndjavera at Tigers for undisclosed fee.

The player revealed last month that he left Young African in order to seek greener pastures.

Hengombe attracted interest from various clubs, including African Stars and Unam.

The player, however, decided to follow his heart and join a club he believes can win the MTC Namibia Premier League (NPL).

“I am happy to have signed a deal with Tigers and I am prepared to play hard in order to help the team thrill this coming season,” Hengombe said.

He had been an influential player for the Gobabis-based side, after a great display earned his club the Debmarine Namibia Cup trophy in 2017.

His ability to control the ball and move into attacking spaces also earned him a call-up to the senior national team.

Tigers aim is to improve on their inconsistent form last season, which saw them lingering in the bottom half of the table for long periods.

Tigers lost 12 matches during the 2017/18 premier league season, while winning 14 games and drawing four of their 30 encounters.

This resulted in the resignation of coach Lucky Kakuva, who was under pressure from management.

The club appointed Woody Jacobs as its new mentor in December last year.

He managed to help the team out of the relegation zone, leading them to a sixth-place finish.

Jacobs, however, resigned last month after disagreements with the management.

The club has now acquired the services of former player Mervin Mbakera as their head coach.
