South Sudanese national team central defender Bernard Agele has completed his move to Brunei Super League top flight club Kota Ranger FC from Malaysian club Universiti Teknologi Mara (Uitm) Football Club, based in Shah Alam in Selangor City.

Agele’s Kota Ranger FC move was done and dusted on Saturday 7th March 2020 after the expiration of his contract with the Malaysian based club UiTM FC since December 2019.

The Brunei Super League is a Bruneian professional league for association football. It is at the top flight of the Bruneian football league system and it is managed by the National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam.

The lanky defender previously played at Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU), Express FC, UPDF FC Uganda and Paidha Black Angels in Uganda, while in the Kenyan Premier League Agele featured for Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB FC) in 2015. 

Agele who signed a year deal was handed his club debut on Sunday 8th March 2020 when Kota Rangers beat IKLS FC by 2 goals to Zero, with Kota Ranger FC registering its second win of the season and are currently topping the table standing

The rock solid center back who joined Kota Ranger as a free agent was part of Cyprian Besong’s squad that played Malawi away and Burkina Faso at home in the 2021 Total Africa Cup of Nations group B matches. 

The move officially closes down all sorts of speculation that had linked the player to a number of clubs within Malaysia and other parts of Asia. He is looking forward to being part of the Bright Star squad to face Uganda on 28th and 31st in Namboole and Nyayo Stadium respectively in the Total Africa Cup of Nations group B double header against the Uganda Cranes. 

Agele is now capped 17 times for the South Sudan National Team, the Bright Stars after his first appearance in the CECAFA Senior Men’s competition in Ethiopia in 2015, his debut was against Djibouti, where South Sudan won by 2 goals to zero.
