Zhuwawo, Nyadombo signed by Amazulu

The Reigning Zimbabwean Footballer of the year Ramson Zhuwawo has finally realised his dream of playing soccer outside the borders of his motherland. Zhuwawo, together with young defender Carlington Nyadombo were signed by Amazulu before the weekend.

The two former Gunners players were instrumental in the Zimbabwe champions' shock 1-0 victory of Africa's club of the milleminum Al Ahly at Rufaro in the second round of the CAF Champions League this year.

Zhuwawo in particular has been seriously searching for a club that fits his profile. His club-hunting mission took him to Parow area in Cape Town, where he trained with Vasco da Gama before reportedly stalling on a contract offer. He was reported to have moved to Gauteng province in search of a club with a bigger profile than Premier Soccer League debutants  Vasco. The midfielder suprised all and sundry when he surfaced at the Durban-based Amazulu.

Former Gunners' captain Zhuwawo and Nyadombo featured in the Telkom Charity Cup on Saturday for Amazulu and Zhuwawo played brilliantly for the KZN side, albeit in an unfamiliar right back position. He managed to shut out completely the speedy Daine Klate of Orlando Pirates. Nyadombo also did well in the heart of defence.

It was after the match that new Amazulu coach Manqoba Mngqithi announced the capture of the two Zimbabweans.

"We have already signed both players", confirmed Mngqithi.

"We signed Ramson as an offensive midfielder but we played him as a right back because of the injuries that we have in the team", Mngqithi clarified Zhuwawo's unfamiliar role on Saturday.

The signing of Nyadombo will be particularly exciting news for Norman Mapeza, who does not have a trusted young central defender in the Warriors' set-up. Most of the Warriors central defenders such as Zvenyika Makonese, Method Mwanjali, Dickson Choto and Thomas Sweswe are approaching 30, with the in-form Makonese having gone beyond 30 already.

Nyadombo and Zhuwawo are expected to play a key role in the team's PSL campaign this season. Even though his team started on a 0-1 losing note to Pirates in the Charity Cup, Mngqithi's boys showed that they will mount a strong challenge on the PSL title this season.
