Benni McCarthy's AmaZulu set to announce big name signing

Amazulu could soon be set to unveil Abbubaker Mobara as a new signing, according to a reliable source.

Usuthu coach Benni McCarthy has made no secret of his desire to add more players to his squad ahead of the second half of the DStv Premiership season.

The Durbanbased club enter the second half of the season in fifth place on the standings with 27 points after 20 games. They are three points adrift of secondplaced Orlando Pirates.

They will also be hoping to deliver a good showing in the CAF Champions League, where they have been drawn in Group B alongside Raja Casablanca, Horoya and ES


Mobara has been struggling to earn regular playing time in the Western Cape this season, with

Cape Town City coach Eric Tinkler preferring to utilise Nathan Fasika and Taariq Fielies as centre-backs.

Meanwhile, the agent of SuperSport United midfielder Teboho Mokoena has confirmed that the player will soon be joining neighbours Mamelodi Sundowns.

The 25-year-old has been a bright spark in central midfield for SuperSport in recent seasons and looks set to be an important component of the Bafana Bafana team under coach Hugo Broos.

“I can confirm that the player agreed terms last week and subsequently put pen to paper. This is subject to the two clubs agreeing. I believe an announcement is imminent,” the player’s agent Glyn Binkin was quoted as saying.

Should the deal go ahead, Mokoena will be expected to add depth to Sundowns and strengthen their chances of defending the league title and launch a challenge for the Champions League crown.
