Ex-SuperSport United duo Ayabulela Konqobe & Darren Smith complete moves to Europe


Former Amajita captain Ayabulela Konqobe and Darren Smith have signed one-year contracts with Ekenäs IF in Finland.

Konqobe, 24, will look to rebuild his career in Europe that has been blighted by reported disciplinary issues since graduating from the Ajax Cape Town academy in 2014.

Once touted as a future captain of Bafana Bafana, the technically gifted defender has amassed only 20 games in the Absa Premiership over the past six years.

However, he's now penned a deal with the Ykkönen side for the season, alongside former SuperSport United and Amazulu teammate Smith.

The 23-year-old Smith is also a product of the Urban Warriors youth system and featured six times in the top-flight, scoring once.

EIF finished sixth in the Finnish second-tier last season and will be aiming for promotion from the 10-team division in 2020.
