Official: Chawapiwa joins new club

Premiership

Sekhukhune United have confirmed their latest signing in former AmaZulu and Baroka winger Talent Chawapiwa.

Chawapiwa left AmaZulu and has now penned a two-year deal with the DStv Premiership newcomers.

"Babina Noko is delighted to announce the signing of Middlefield, Talent Chawapiwa from AmaZulu FC," read a statement from Sekhukhune on Wednesday.

According to the player's agent Michael Ngobeni, The Warriors international was not happy with the amount of game-time he received at Usuthu.

The 29-year-old Zimbabwean international featured just 20 times under Benni McCarthy last season and is hoping this new chapter will bring him more joy.

"Two [seasons]. He's happy there. There was nothing wrong with Usuthu, but you see the thing is Chawapiwa is a national team player. He didn't get enough game time," explains Ngobeni to KickOff.com.

"So, definitely he was happy at AmaZulu but at the end of the day, as a soccer player, you can't be happy staying without playing because the player's value is on playing.

"We kept on receiving phone calls from the national team, so we came up with a mutual agreement with AmaZulu that he can move on and find game time [elsewhere].

"So they were happy for him, he was happy to leave. And Sekhukhune were happy also to have him. It's exciting."
