Banyana star makes overseas move

Banyana Banyana forward Rhoda Mulaudzi has secured herself a deal with an overseas based club.

Mulaudzi, who was at the FIFA Women’s World Cup with Banyana recently, has signed for Apollon Ladies FC in Cyprus and she will wear the number 12.

The forward was on the books of Australian outfit Canberra United, but her contract came to an end before the World Cup.

“I am so excited about this move, and I am almost certain it will open doors for other players to come this side. What makes me even happier is that I will be playing in the UEFA Women Champions League – in terms of levels this is the second highest in the game after the World Cup, and now it is a dream come true,” Mulaudzi is quoted as saying on the SAFA website. 

“I still don’t believe how it happened. The vice president of the club in-boxed me on Facebook, asking if I was available to join their team – and at first I thought it was a scam. But my faith pushed me to go ahead and probe further, and here I am today seeing another dream come true,” added Mulaudzi.

“I am so happy I don’t even know what to say – this is just a good indication that when God says yes no one can say no. He has been really amazing to me – first taking me to Australia, then getting a chance again in the national team, playing in the World Cup and now this, what more can I ask for?”
