Nkhiphitheni Matombo

Date of Birth: 31/1/77

Position: Centre-back

Clubs: Dynamos, Manning Rangers, Black Leopards

Bafana Bafana caps: 0

Matombo was a big, raw centre-back and a big favourite of coach Shakes Mashaba, winning well over 20 Under-23 caps. A product of Dynamos, he played mainly for Manning Rangers but never cemented a regular first team place. He returned north to join Black Leopards in 2003, where he played under Mashaba again. Within a few years, Matombo had drifted out of the first-class game, having never graduated to full international status.
