MSUNDUZA – Eswatini international and Cape Town All Stars winger Justice ‘Figa’ Figuareido is going back to DStv Premiership side TS Galaxy.

The former Denver Sundowns speedy winger was loaned to the Cape Town-based side, campaigning in the GladAfrica First Division at the start of the season for more game time. The erstwhile Maritzburg United midfielder scored four goals in his season-long spell at Igugu leKapa, with his latest goal in the recently-ended PSL Promotion and Relegation Playoffs against Swallows.


His Coach at Cape Town All Stars Sinethemba Badela confirmed that Figa would not be part of them next season as his parent team wanted him back. “He’s going back to his parent club; they want to keep him,” Badela said. He said the Eswatini player had a wonderful season with Igugu leKapa, even though he came to Cape Town carrying an injury which forced him out of the team for a while. The coach said once ‘Figa’ was fully recovered, he became an important player for his side as he scored three goals and had four assists, before closing the season with a fourth goal in the playoffs against Swallows. “What a fantastic season for Figa with us! He knows where he still needs to improve, but he really has made huge strides this season,” he said.


He also wished him all the best in his future endeavours. There was no immediate comment from the winger or TS Galaxy. Worthy mentioning is that, Figa is also not in the COSAFA Cup 2022-bound Eswatini national team, Sihlangu, named by coach Dominic Kunene this past Friday. The duo of Figa and Angola’s Sagrada Esperanca winger, Bonginkosi ‘Manyovu’ Dlamini, also missed Sihlangu’s two Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 Qualifiers against Togo and Burkina Faso. Manyovu had issues getting to camp on time and was told to return home when he arrived on departure day, while Figa’s team insisted they never received a request for the player from the EFA which also insisted it did send it.
