Ex-Buccaneer Off To Enjoy Football Abroad

A former Orlando Pirates defender is on course to revive his career abroad after ending his seven-year stay in Mzansi.

After being linked with several clubs in Mzansi, including Kaizer Chiefs and Highlands Park since his exit from Chippa United, Nigerian defender James Okwuosa is on course to revive his career with Al Qadsia SC in Kuwait, having recently joined the side on a two-year deal. 

“James has left for overseas. He is in Kuwait and will be playing for Al Qadsia this season. It’s the top team there in Kuwait. It’s the club that Rashid Sumaila – the former Mamelodi Sundowns defender from Ghana – that used to play for. The club features regularly in the Champions League. James has signed a two-year contract with the club. He will enjoy his football there,” confirmed the player’s representative.
