“He progressed all the way through the club structures until making the move to Portugal last year after a very good season in the ABC Motsepe League. Despite suffering an injury which kept him out for four months, he was still voted in the Sonic Team of the season 2018-19. Nakedi is one of the most gifted players to come from our development and we wish him all the best. He is also the second player to sign in Europe after Kgaogelo Sekgota (now on loan at Bidvest Wits from Vitória Setubal) signed with FC Stumbras in March 2017,” the club confirmed.
