Description:
Katlego Mphela (born 29 November 1984 in Brits, North West) is a South African footballer who currently plays for Mamelodi Sundowns.

Club career

Mphela had a 1-week trial with Scottish Premier League giants Celtic but returned home to Sundowns after failing to win a contract with his poor performances.

International career

He has represented South Africa 31 times, scoring 15 goals. He scored South Africa's only goal in the 3–1 defeat against Tunisia in the 2008 African Nations Cup.
