Durban Stars sign Chad Botha


Botha, who last played his soccer in Finland, is expected to make his official debut in Stars’ colours on Saturday when the KwaZulu\Natal based outfit take on Ikapa Sporting at King Zwelithini Stadium.

Durban Stars boss Phindani Nene also revealed the possibility of extending Botha’s contract at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Nene has also praised new coach Sammy Troughton and his players for their commitment which they have shown in the field of play in their recent league games.

“It’s the same players I had last season. I don’t want to single out anyone behind the team’s performance in the league but both the coach and the players deserve praise for their commitment to win.

“At the moment I have not set my sights on qualifying for promotion because I think that we will only be fully equipped and ready to challenge for the Premiership next season.”
