Thanda's new recruits 'ready for action'


The Durban-based outfit have signed Malian Jonas Okotela and Felix Obada from Nigerian side Kwara United, and are hoping to take the pair with them on the trip to the Free State at the weekend where they are due to play Ea La Koto at Goble Park on Saturday.

Thanda signed the two during the recent transfer window period but are still battling to get their papers sorted out so that they can resume their careers in South Africa.

Amabhubesi manager Thabang Gumede is confident that everything will be accomplished before the leave to tackle high-riding Free State Stars.

“Both players are working hard at training and are ready for action,” he says.

“Our players have promised to pull up their socks and from what I have seen at training this week, I am confident of the three points from Kinnah Phiri’s side on Saturday.”
