A Zimbabwean midfielder has landed in Mzansi, with the announcement of his signing at his new club imminent.
After being linked with a move to Portugal, having also attracted interested from no less than three clubs in Mzansi, Blessing Sarupinda has been signed by ambitious club, Sekhukhune United.
Earlier this year, the 22-year-old midfielder was linked with a move to Portuguese third-tier club, Sporting Clube.
Following his impressive performances during the recent COSAFA Cup in the Eastern Cape, Sarupinda has been snapped up by Babina Noko, who had talent scout Themba Sithole among those in attendance during the games in Gqeberha.
“Blessing Sarupinda has landed in South Africa to officially join his new club. He has started training with his new teammates at Sekhukhune United this morning at the Greek Sporting Club in Linksfield,” confirmed the source.
“Sekhukhune bought the player from CAPS United. It is a done deal, and an announcement is expected to be made by the club anytime from now. SuperSport United and Chippa United were very keen on the player but Sekhukhune beat all the interested clubs to his signature. This is the most talked about and highly-rated Zimbabwean player at the moment,” the source added.
Sarupinda is a product of the Aces Youth Soccer Academy, which is the Zimbabwean football academy that produced the country’s top exports over the years such as Khama Billiat and Knowledge Musona, among others.
