Jooste Follows Human To Complete AmaZulu Move

Former Orlando Pirates winger Wayde Jooste has followed Rowan Human to join AmaZulu.

According to the iDiski Times sources, Jooste was supposed to feature in the final of the KZN Premier’s Cup against Richards Bay but was ruled out due to a bout of flu.

As previously reported by this website, the former Pirates wing-back joined Usuthu for pre-season training and impressed new head coach Pablo Franco Martin.

Jooste was without a club after leaving Maritzburg United, with the KwaZulu-Natal club having suffered relegation via the play-offs last term.

The 31-year-old was signed by the Team of Choice following the arrival of coach Fadlu Davids to replace John Maduka in November last year.   

Before he joined Maritzburg, Jooste had trained with SuperSport United under the watchful eyes of coach Gavin Hunt, but the Tshwane giants couldn’t agree on the financial terms with the former Pirates right-back.

Jooste, in the career that started at Bloemfontein Celtic in the 2013/14 season under Ernst Middendorp, has featured in 157 matches in all competitions, scoring seven goals in the process, winning the MTN8 with Pirates in the 2020/21 season. 

He joins Celimpilo Ngema, Mfanafuthi Mkhize, Mondli Mbanjwa and Human as new players ahead of the 2023/24 season under Spanish coach Martin.          

It will be the third time Jooste is playing in KwaZulu-Natal province, having spent three years at Golden Arrows between 2016 and 2019.
