I’m here on business: Tarumbwa

Zimbabwean striker Obadia Tarumbwa said he was adjusting fast to the South African Premiership, where he recently joined Pretoria University.

The former Highlanders star player said he was happy at his new base, where he vowed to make a mark for himself as he did back home when he was still in the books of Bulawayo-based Bosso.

Tarumbwa told The Zimbabwean, “I feel great here and this league is one of the best, if not the best in the continent. The training facilities, stadia and management are all world-class and allowing for a player to flourish.

“There will be no room for me to fail here. I am not here on holiday and that will show for me as the season progresses. It will not be long before I rediscover my form and start banging-in the goals.”

The sharp-shooter has signed a three-year contract with the AmaTuks, which will keep him in the Absa PSL until 2016, by which time he hopes to have accomplished his mission of becoming one of the best players in the SA league.

“I believe I did quite well in my first official game for the club, which we played against Moroka Swallows, even though we lost 1-0. Everyone else in the team did well against a better side of the day. I still expect to do even more because I am still adjusting to a new league. Competition is very high, but I’m ready for any challenges that will come my way,” he said.

The former Highlanders striker said he was targeting 15 goals this season, adding that anything more would be a bonus. Tarumbwa will be working with fellow Zimbabweans at the club, which already has former Bosso teammates Tendai Tanyanyiwa as goalkeepers’ coach and first choice goalkeeper Washington Arubi.
