CONFIRMED DEAL: UNITED SIGN ZIMBABWEAN WINGER NYONI
     
   
 

Maritzburg United have further boosted their squad with the signing of left winger Gabriel Nyoni from Zimbabwean giants CAPS United.
     
 

 

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder impressed while on trial with the Team of Choice and can now look forward to testing himself in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

 

“Coach Eric Tinkler was very impressed with what he saw from Gabriel and we believe the player will be a very good addition to our squad for next season,” said chairman Farook Kadodia.

 

“He has penned a three-year deal and we would like to welcome him to our club and to the city of Pietermaritzburg.

 

“A player’s character is also very important when considering a new signing, and apart from his soccer talents, Gabriel is a well-rounded individual with a Bachelor of Commerce Honours degree in Marketing, as well as a motivational speaker and a writer,” Kadodia added.

 

Nyoni, who was amongst the goals and assists last season for CAPS after joining from Highlanders, is focussed on the new job at hand and is determined to make the most of the opportunity.

 

“I’m very excited to join such a professional club like Maritzburg United. I am raring to pay back the trust they have put in me by helping the club to end in a good position this season.

 

“I’m here to work hard and want to make sure the club gets good value from me.

 

“I know the standards and professionalism in the PSL are higher than where I’m coming from. But I’m ready to embrace the challenge, because in South Africa you have a good opportunity to make a name for yourself and can potentially earn a move abroad,” he continued.

 

“I respect South African football and believe the PSL is one of the best leagues in Africa - it gives me a great platform to showcase my talent.

 

“I also respect my new coach Eric Tinkler, he’s a great coach, he’s seen potential in me and I have to make sure I deliver on that.

 

“The club has treated me very well and I’ve been well received by the players and by people in the city. Now I’m looking forward to getting down to work and with God’s help, I will reach greater heights in South Africa.”

 

The Team of Choice’s other new arrivals include Phumlani Ntshangase, Kwanda Mngonyama and Yusuf Jappie, while Judas Moseamedi’s loan spell from Cape Town City has been turned into a permanent stay.
