Nigerian And Tanzanian Sign SA Deals
New Players Have Been Signed By Mzansi Club
A Nigerian and Tanzanian player have both signed deals with a South African club.
Jomo Cosmos have confirmed signing the duo of Kizito Chinonye Obi and Ismail Mohamed Mgunda. The two players have been added to Jomo Sono’s side to help them in their push for promotion to the PSL.
“Determined to strengthen its engine room and provide more options up front, Jomo Cosmos have signed up Nigerian midfielder Kizito Chinonye Obi and Tanzanian striker Ismail Mohamed Mgunda.
“Apparently, both players impressed the technical team during trials in the past couple of weeks and were duly rewarded with contracts,” Cosmos confirmed on their official website.
“Obi, who turns 27 in July, penned a 16 months deal with Ezenkosi with an option to renew.
The hard-tackling holding midfielder, who can also be deployed in attacking positions, last played for South African Vodacom League side Leruma United FC after a stint with Tucanes FC in Venezuela’s Premier League.
“Tanzanian front man Mgunda also comes with a bag of experience having starred in his country’s Premier League with RUVU Shooting FC, as well as in Botswana with Gilport Lions.
“Mgunda sealed a 12-month contract with an option to renew. His acquisition is seen as a move to help resolve Ezenkosi’s goalscoring issues following the midseason exits of Mxolisi Macuphu and Linda Mntambo,” the club confirmed.
