Elias Pelembe Age
He was born on the 13th of November 1983 in Maputo, Mozambique. As of 2020, he is 37 years old.
Domingues, as he is nicknamed, has been a revelation since coming to South Africa in 2007 from Desportivo Maputo. He was undoubtedly Supersport United’s most influential player when they won the 2007–08 Premier Soccer League and was subsequently voted PSL Player of the Season.
During the summer of 2009, he was rumoured to be closing in on a move to one of Europe’s bigger leagues as he had caught the eye of Tottenham Hotspur scouts following a string of impressive performers for club and the national team. Eventually, he was bought by big-spenders Mamelodi Sundowns where he was handed a substantial wage.
On 17 May 2017, Bidvest Wits were crowned 2016-17 Premier Soccer League Champions, following a 2-0 win over Polokwane City, beating his former club (Mamelodi Sundowns) in the title race.
According to his coach, Gavin Hunt, Domingues was instrumental in that game. The win also meant he is now one of the very few players to have won the Premier Soccer League title 4 times (with 3 different clubs), having also won 2 with Supersport United in 2007–08 Premier Soccer League and 2008–09 Premier Soccer League and 1 with Mamelodi Sundowns) in 2013–14 Premier Soccer League.
Furthermore, the win also meant he successfully completed a League and Cup double, since Bidvest Wits also won the MTN 8 title earlier in the season, with a 3-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns at the Mbombela Stadium, on 1 October 2016.
He is also an influential member of his country’s national team, the Black Mambas. He is currently their top scorer between players that are still actively playing.
He has an estimated net worth of $500,000 which he has earned as a footballer.
