Maritzburg United confirm reunion with former striker

Maritzburg United have confirmed the reunion with their former striker who has returned for his second stint at the club.

The Team of Choice, now competing in the Motsepe Foundation Championship, defeated Black Leopards in the Nedbank Cup qualifiers on Wednesday afternoon at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.

A 2-1 win saw them secure a spot in the round of 32 which is going to begin in the second round of the season after the Africa Cup of Nations.

In that match, Judas Moseamedi was in the stands along with the teammates who were sidelined. The 29-year-old resurfaced at the Midlands side last month but recently signed for the side, reviving his career in the second-tier. 

The club’s head coach Simo Dladla confirmed Moseamedi is officially part of the team. He signed with the club as a free agent after parting ways with the Tunisian outfit El Gawafel Sportives de Gasfa.

He made his second debut for Maritzburg in their previous game against Upington City with the KZN side losing 2-0 on the road.

Unfortunately, the Tzaneen-born forward suffered a knock and was unavailable for selection on Wednesday.

“He got the opportunity last week when on Saturday and had a very good 30 minutes,” said Dladla.

“But he got a knock and was unavailable today. He has signed.”

Moseamedi had his first spell with Maritzburg on loan from Cape Town City in 2019. He then joined the club permanently after six months, leaving the Citizens at the end of the 2018/19 season.

He had been with City since 2016 when they purchased Mpumalanga Black Aces where he graduated as a development player.

Moseamedi has also turned out for the now-defunct Free State Stars, Stellenbosch FC and Marumo Gallants.
