Maritzburg sign French striker


Maritzburg United have bolstered their attack with the signature of French striker Amadou Soukouna.

The 29-year-old has penned a two-year deal at the club.

Capped at Under-19 level by France, he spent his formative years at Toulouse in his homeland, before later playing in Bulgaria and most recently Israel.

“I feel good to be playing for this team and hope that it’s good for everyone – the chairman, the club, the coach and for my teammates,” said Soukouna.

“Now I’m here to experience another challenge, another football culture, so I’m excited for it and ready. I have a good feeling with the coach and training has been going well, I hope to keep it like this.”

Soukouna will compete with Richard Zumah, Leletu Skelem and Bongokuhle Hlongwane for a place in the United attack.

“We are pleased to welcome Amadou to the Team of Choice,” club Chairman Farook Kadodia said. “He is a player with vast experience and pedigree. We are looking forward to what he brings to the club.”
