Robin Ngalande Junior[1] (born 2 November 1992) is a Malawian international footballer who plays as a striker.[2]

Club career[edit]

Born in Dedza,[1] Ngalande began his career with Civo United.[1] He later joined the youth team of Spanish club Atlético Madrid in September 2010, joining from the youth ranks of South African club Mamelodi Sundowns.[3][4] Ngalande had been offered contracts by sixteen other European clubs.[5]

Ngalande returned to South Africa in 2012 signing a two-year contract with Bidvest Wits.[6]

On 10 July 2014, Ngalande signed a season-long loan deal with Ajax Cape Town.[7] In July 2015 he moved on loan again, this time to Platinum Stars.[8] In December 2015 his performances for the club were criticised.[9] After returning from his loan at the end of the season, he was said to be considering his options.[10]

Ngalande was released by Bidvest in September 2016.[11]
