Downs sign Amajita star Twala


Twala, who played for Benoni Premier United and then Western Province United, has been hailed as an exciting prospect for the Brazilians this coming season.

Sundowns are also expected to sit down former Kaizer Chiefs striker Collins Mbesuma this week. The Zambian striker has been training with the Brazilians last Friday.

Club communications manager Mahlatse Mphahlele has confirmed the signing of Twala, but could not give details of the Sebokeng-born star’s contract.

“I am not sure of the number of years that he has signed for, but I can confirm that the technical team has been very impressed, hence their decision to instruct the management to sign him.

Mphahlele said another trialist, midfielder Vusi Madimane from Malanti Chiefs in Swaziland, will not be signed whilst the future of David Kannemeyer and Elias Ngwepe remains undecided.
