Goodman to host local tournament


The Corporate Social Investment (CSI) is part of what Dlamini wants to give back to his community to thank them for their unwavering support they have shown since he was at Nongoma Citizens in the Vodacom League (now ABC Motsepe League).

The tournament will be held next month and the 26-year-old, who scored five League goals playing as a second striker last season, is still sketchy about the dates and the venue.

"I'm just waiting for my local municipality to give me feedback with regards to the dates and the venue and how many teams will take part," says Dlamini.

"No doubt that it will be great a occasion and it is something I'm looking forward to do just to give back, that they have someone who is playing at the highest level in the PSL.

"There will be a lot of clubs where I come from. Once they hear my name they will turn up, which I'm very happy about. Football in this region is big and we will see big clubs who I have played against in the past while I was still here playing," he adds.

Meanwhile his club Usuthu will lose his close friend Thamsanqa Teyise, who has signed a pre-contract with SuperSport United. Teyise was the club's Players' Player of the Season last season.

"It's football. He saw a move which he took it and he is joining a big club of SuperSport United's calibre. We have to move on as a club and it will be a massive blow to lose him of course as he has been a great servant," Dlamini says.

"He has been rock-solid at the back and in saying that, players like Thami are quite rare to find. To me I'm losing a close friend and I hope and wish him all the best."
