Domingo Breaks Silence On Blockbuster Raja Move

Former Mamelodi Sundowns attacking midfielder Haashim Domingo has spoken for the first time since signing for Moroccan giants, Raja Club Athletic, saying he is eyeing a successful stay at the Botola Pro League side.

Domingo was unveiled the by Moroccan side on Wednesday after joining the club on a free transfer following his departure from Mamelodi Sundowns, as first reported by iDiski Times.

The 27-year-old, who spent three seasons with Sundowns after joining them from Bidvest Wits in 2020, left the Tshwane giants after both parties could not agree on new terms for the upcoming season.

But Domingo was on the hunt for a new club for long after the Moroccans quickly tabled an offer, and snapping him up for free to become Josef Zinnbauer’s first signing.   

“I’m very happy to join Raja Casablanca. I’m looking forward to a very successful time at the club. Hopefully we can bring lots of titles and be successful,” said Domingo in a short video message after his arrival.

Domingo, who also spent some time in Portugal with Vitoria Guimaraes where he played alongside his former teammate Bongani Zungu, won five major trophies with Sundowns, including three league titles. He featured in 63 matches in all competitions, scoring six goals in the process.  

The former Bidvest Wits attacker arrives at the team that lie fifth in the Botola Pro League with one game to spare. That game will be against Difaa El Jadida, which will be played at 21:00 on Friday night.  

But Raja also still have the Arab Club Champions Cup to look forward to, where they will face Algerian side CR Belouizdad (27 July), Kuwait SC (31 July) from Kuwait and Pitso Mosimane’s Al Wahda on 3 August.
