According to latest reports in South African football, Maritzburg United signed one of the best strikers in Africa. The striker they brought on board at the team of choice is said to be the topscorer this season in the Zambian Premier League, which should be a plus for Maritzburg United as they are struggling this season in the DStv Premiership.
Maritzburg United are currently sitting deep down in the 13th place spot just outside of the relegation section of the Premier League log. The team of choice although they not in the relegation zone, still faces an uncertainty to whether they'll move away up the log into safety as the club has not been in their most promising form.
Maritzburg United lack quality in their attack and in their defence while they are doing their best work in the midfield. Maritzburg United will need both defenders and strikers to be a better version of themselves and fight against being relegated.
However, the team of choice completed a new deal in the January transfer window as they signed a new striker to their squad. Maritzburg United brought on board, Friday Samu from Green Buffaloes, on a two-year deal. Buffaloes is a Zambian Premier League side who are a very strong competitive club.
Friday Samu is not only a great Zambian striker, but he's also the topscorer in the Zambian Premier League this season with 14 goals to his name. Maritzburg United made the right choice signing a striker who is a natural goal poacher as they need goals to move up the log.
Orlando Pirates player Kwame Peprah was also a topscorer in the Ghanaian Premier League, but when he completed a move to Pirates, he struggled to find the back of the net until most recently in December of 2021 scoring 4 goals in 2 matches. Friday Samu might struggle the same way to adjust in the Premier Soccer League [PSL] or he could kick off with a bang and be an instant striking sensation.
Either way, scoring early or after a few matches, Friday Samu is a good fit for Maritzburg United and a prolific striker.
