Maritzburg United completed the signing of Mxolisi Kunene to add him to the roster for the 2017/18 season.

Following the exit of Kurt Lentjies from the club, who left the KwaZulu-Natal outfit to join Chippa United, the Team of Choice signed Kunene to increase the midfield options for Fadlu Davids’ side.

Kunene, 25, was surprisingly released from Baroka FC at the end of the past season, despite being one of the star performers for the Limpopo outfit. The midfielder’s goal, which he scored against Kaizer Chiefs, earned him the PSL gong for Goal of the Month for March.

The goal has also made it into the final list for the 2016/17 Absa-lutely Goal of the Season award to be voted for by the members of the public.

“Mxolisi Kunene has been signed by Maritzburg United. He has been signed on a two-year deal with an option for another two years. He is a Maritzburg United player now,” said the source.

The Siya crew has it on good authority that Bloemfontein Celtic was also keen on the player's signature but was beaten by Maritzburg.
