A Mamelodi Sundowns target has put pen to paper for another PSL side, FARPost has learnt.
This publication has it in good authority that teenage sensation Andile Zuma has found a new home in the Motsepe Foundation Championship.
As reported by FARPost three weeks ago, the 19-year-old footballer underwent an assessment at the SA second-tier side with the hope of securing a deal.
ANDILE ZUMA SIGNS FOR A PSL SIDE
This publication can now confirm that Zuma has signed a short-term contract with KwaZulu-Natal outfit, Milford FC.
The youngster, previously underwent assessment at Mamelodi Sundowns’ feeder club M-Tigers before he went to Spain for trials.
M Tigers competes in the SAFA Gauteng ABC Motsepe League. The side is currently placed 6th in the SA third tier with 19 points from 11 outings.
Zuma previously won the Bayhill Premier Cup with Grassy Park United.
MILFORD FC FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES
At the moment, things aren’t looking good for Milford as they are languishing at the bottom [16th place] of the Motsepe Foundation Championship log standings.
So far, the side only managed to amass 10 points after 13 games.
This is Milford’s first season in the Motsepe Foundation Championship, having purchased Uthongathi FC status at the beginning of the campaign.
In fact, the team’s poor performance saw them firing their head coach Asanda Mvalo.
Following Mvalo’s departure from the club, Xanti Pupuma took over the coaching reins at Milford.
Milford’s next assignment will be against Platinum City Rovers at home on Saturday, 2 December 2023. The match will start at 15:30.
Pupuma’s charges haven’t won a game in their last five league matches.
Therefore, Milford will be hoping to turn around their misfortunes on Saturday.
With all being said, Zuma will be expected to add much-needed value to the struggling KZN-based side and help them to survive the chop.
