AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela has revealed that the club will decide tomorrow if they will sign former Kaizer Chiefs winger Ovidy Karuru.
This website revealed Zimbabwe international Karuru had started training with Usuthu on Monday in the hope of a return to the PSL after a failed stint with Amakhosi, who released him at the end of last season.
As AmaZulu coach Joey Antipas plots for the second half of the NFD season, looking to replicate their run of four successive wins prior to the festive break, he invited his compatriot for assessment in the effort to boost his options out wide.
And Sokhela says it’s so far, so good in terms of Karuru's impact in training, although he will first have to engage with the club’s directors to map a way forward.
“We have been impressed with him but one needs to look at certain aspects from the management point of view but in terms of the calibre of the player we’re very happy,” Sokhela tells KickOff.com during the club’s unveiling of Sugar Ray Xulu Legacy Programme in Durban’s ICC.
“I think we will decide tomorrow and I need to engage with directors on signing him and we will take it from there.”
Meanwhile, Usuthu have decided that the proceeds they will receive from the KZN Derby against Real Kings on February 26 will be donated to the Sugar Ray Xulu Legacy Programme, which was launched today.
Tickets for that game are already on sale, with adult prices at R20 and R10 for kids (from under 12) and early birds before February 20 will qualify for a discount of R15, while suite tickets (VIP) are R200 and include refreshments.
