The defender was roped in after he impressed the side’s technical team during recent pre-season training. Banda spent some time on trials at the side, before he was signed, after he had played just a few games for Bosso.
United commercial manager, Younus Kadodia, said the player did not take long to convince the club that he was the kind of player they were looking for, with his pedigree proving he was a top-class star.
He has been training with the club at the start of the league, although his challenge now has been getting a work visa that would enable him to start playing competitive games for the side.
“We are very happy about the Zimbabwean defender. He is a top class defender who we believe will bring some value and stability to the team,” said Kadodia. “All we need to do now is give him a chance to play and express his himself in our official games, which will be as soon as he gets his work documents.”
Banda played a vital role in Bosso’s defence, although he came in as a substitute in a number of games. He joined Highlanders at the beginning of the season from, crosstown rivals How Mine and now joins his countrymen Terrence Mandaza, who is also in the books of Maritzburg United.Post published in: Football
