Mthembu in the USA

Kaizer Chiefs speedy defender Marco Mthembu is in the United States but not to play in the Major Leagues Soccer (MSL) but rather to get married to his long time sweet heart Tammy.

Mthembu and his wife-to-be - an American by nationality - left South Africa last week and they are both expected back by the end of July.

The speedy and hard-working midfielder will miss the Fourth Annual Vodacom Challenge but he will still be playing for Amakhosi next season. He has been given a contract extension for one more season.

Mthembu scored a brilliant goal five minutes into the second half to put Kaizer Chiefs on their way to a 2-0 win against Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak in last year's semifinals in Rustenburg.

Mthembu, then sporting a cheeky new hairstyle, unleashed a superb strike to round off a great build-up between new signing Stanton Fredericks and Justice Sithole.
