Laffor Signs New Contract

Speculations in many quarters of South Africa that former Liberia’s Lone Star Captain, Anthony Snoti Laffor will leave Mamelodi Sundowns this summer is now over after the South Africa’s based versatile player signed a two and half-year contract extension with Sundowns which will keep him at the club until 2017

Laffor has been linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs next season.

The Liberian international has been linked with a move to Absa Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs during the mid-season break last season, with some news outlets even going so far as to claim the 29-year-old could move for free.

However, Paul Mitchell, who negotiated Laffor’s move to Sundowns from Super Sport United in 2012, this week ruled out the possibility of the player being allowed to leave on a free transfer.

In fact, Mitchell revealed that Sundowns has an option to extend Laffor’s contract. The likes of Chiefs and Bidvest Wits were credited with an interest in Laffor, but the Liberian has now ended speculations by signing a fresh two-year contract with the Brazilians.

Born in Monrovia, Laffor has played club football in Liberia, Ghana, and South Africa for LISCR, Ashanti Gold Field, Jomo Cosmos, Super Sport United and Mamelodi Sundowns.

He made his international debut for Liberia in 2003 and has played in FIFA World Cup qualifying matches as well as Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches. In June 2012, Laffor was named Captain of the National team of Liberia.
