Former Chiefs Winger Finds New PSL Club

Former Kaizer Chiefs winger Edmore Chirambadare is one of five new signings of Motsepe Foundation Championship side Magesi FC, with head coach Clinton Larsen excited about the new additions.

The club announced the arrival of five new players, including former Amakhosi winger Chirambadare on Monday morning. They have also brought in the experience of Rhulani Manzini and Deolin Mekoa, balancing it with youngsters Karabo Seroto and Ntuthuko Mlotshwa in their quest to get promotion.

Dikwena tṧa meetse went into the AFCON break sitting in sixth position on the log with 27 points, just three points behind Orbit College in pole position.

Chirambadare and Manzini were without clubs in the last six months after their contracts at Venda Football Club (VFC) ended, while former South African junior international Mekoa was with Larsen’s former side Summerfield Dynamos in the ABC Motsepe League in KZN. Seroto is from Army Rockets in the North West, while former Jomo Cosmos man Mlotshwa was recently at Mpumalanga Football Academy.

Larsen hopes that the new players will strengthen depth in the side, while also helping the team perform better in the second round of the Motsepe Foundation Championship campaign.

“Yeah we’ve tried to look at areas in the team to strengthen before starting the second round,” said Larsen after the announcement.

“And we’ve brought five new players on board, two under 23 players – Seroto as well as Mlotshwa both young strikers. We believe they’ve got the potential to really do well in the first division and maybe improve to take their careers to further heights.

“And then we brought in three old heads, three experienced players: Deolin Mekoa, an attacking midfielder, we brought in Rhulani Manzini, everybody knows he is a striker with lots of experience and lastly Edmore Chirambadare. So those are the three experienced players with the two young boys we‘ve  brought in.”

“We really believe that they’re going to be a breath of fresh air to the team. They’re going to add quality in the different departments we’ve looked to reinforce and we hope that you know, the inclusion in the squad now strengthens the depth in our squad and we can be a little bit more competitive than we were in the first round.”
