But now that Gariseb has received the papers that enable him to become a naturalised South African, he will be eligible for re-registration enabling him to play as a non-foreigner.
The 27-year-old centre-back went back to his former club Orlando Pirates of Namibia to get game time after the Students had exhausted their foreign quota following the signing of Cameroonian Bienvenu Tipa.
_quoteGariseb played on a ‘loan-like’ arrangement in Namibia and will be returning to fight for an extension of his contract that is due to expire in June.
Derek Blanckensee, the Wits CEO confirms that they will be welcoming back the tough defender.
“He will be returning to the club because he has since received his papers that enable him to play as a non-foreigner. At the beginning of the season he requested that he be allowed to go home and play while his papers were being processed,” says Blanckensee.
Prior to his departure, the defender had played 17 games last season. He was a regular during the 2006/07 season when the Clever Boys campaigned in the First Division.
