Home » Sundowns Target Jabaar Chooses Europe Over PSL

Stellenbosch FC star has chosen to join a European club over Mamelodi Sundowns in a bid to further his career. 

Sundowns were interested in acquiring the services of Stellies attacker Ibraheem Jabaar ahead of the new PSL season. 

The Tshwane giants have already beefed up their squad with the signing of Jabaar’s ex-teammate at Stellenbosch FC Junior Mendieta, Marumo Gallants star Lesiba Nku and Brazilian star Lucas Ribeiro Costa as they prepare for the new season.

Sundowns won their sixth straight DStv Premiership title this past campaign but fell short in the CAF Champions League semi-finals. And Sundowns aiming to go all out in the Champions League, they were eager to sign Jabaar.

However, the Nigerian midfielder opted to pen a deal with Maccabi Petah Tikva ahead of the 2023/24 Israeli Premier League season. It is worth noting that he was spotted on Tuesday at Chloorkop

“Stellenbosch Football Club has parted ways with Ibraheem Jabaar to pave the way for him to join Israel side Maccabi Petah Tikva,” said the club in a statement.

“The club would like to thank our 2022 Stellenbosch FC Young Player of the Year for his service and wish him well on his journey abroad.” Jabaar joined Stellenbosch at the start of the 2020/21 campaign and spent three seasons at the club. Last season, he made 26 appearances in all competitions for the club and scored three goals.

The 20-year-old highly-rated midfielder played a pivotal role as Stellenbosch made it to the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, losing to Sekhukhune United. In addition, he helped Stellies finish sixth on the log standings last season. 

Jabaar would have been the second player to join Mamelodi Sundowns from Stellenbosch in the current transfer window after Mendieta moved to Chloorkop.

Meanwhile, the Brazilians have already parted ways with Andile Jali, Surprise Ralani, Lesedi Kapinga and Haashim Domingo.
