Dax’s First Words After Amakhosi Arrival
Andriamirado 'Dax' Andrianarimanana arrived at the Kaizer Chiefs Village for the first time today and was impressed by what he saw on his arrival in South Africa.
The 27-year-old was confirmed by the Glamour Boys in June alongside Khama Billiat after he won the Player of the Tournament award at the COSAFA Cup, however, there were difficulties regarding his move from Fosa Juniors that meant his arrival was postponed.
Now though, with ‘Dax’ having touched down in South Africa this week, he will be looking forward to getting to know his new Amakhosi teammates before making his debut for the club in the not-so-distant future.
He told the club’s official website, “I am glad to be in South Africa”, praising the Amakhosi’s training base in Naturena, saying, “This is a truly amazing place.”
Chiefs’ social media page also quoted him as saying, “I am very happy to be here. I have been following Kaizer Chiefs closely on Facebook during the last few weeks.”
Meanwhile, the Glamour Boys’ football manager, Bobby Motaung, spoke of his delight at his arrival, telling kaizerchiefs.com, “We have been working hard to ensure that the player comes to South Africa. We now have to work on finalising all his paperwork and medicals but what’s important for us and the supporters is that he is here.”
It remains to be seen how long it will take the attacker to get his South African work permit, therefore he will face a wait before he can don the famous gold and black for the first time.
