Yagan Sasman, who penned a three-year deal with the Glamour Boys this week, will be itching to force his way into Ernst Middendorp’s plans after making his return to the Absa Premiership, and he has been given the number 20 jersey that was recently vacated by Teenage Hadebe.
While the 23-year-old has primarily played as a left back, he spent the latter part of the 2018/19 season with Ajax Cape Town playing as a left centre back, a role that he may well be utilised in at Naturena.
Sean Roberts, of Mede8 Sports, spoke of the player’s excitement at joining the Amakhosi, telling the Siya crew, “This is a dream come true for Yagan… We are all ecstatic for him. He needed a change, and we are thankful for Chiefs making this move such an easy transition. It’s awesome to see how the current players have welcomed Yagan as one of their own, and we believe that big things are coming for Yagan. I have no doubt he will cement himself into the starting XI soon.”
Sasman played all 30 of the Urban Warriors’ games last time out as they narrowly missed out on promotion from the National First Division, and the defender will be eager to add to his 12 top-flight appearances as soon as possible.
