Former Zimbabwe U20 youth striker, Mkhokheli Dube, has joined Usuthu on a three year deal that will see him help the KZN side improve their goal scoring record.
The experienced 29 year old forward, who has impressed the technical team after less than a week of training, says he is pleased with his new home.
“It seems like a good move, and I’m happy to join AmaZulu. The PSL has improved a lot looking at the World Cup infrastructure and how competitive South African football has become,” said the Bulawayo born man.
Dube has spent most of his football career playing in the USA and has spent five seasons playing for New England Revolution where he was twice the leading goal scorer.
Prior to making the trip to KZN to join the 80 year old club, Dube had spent six months with Chicago Fire.
“I’ve played with Tapuwa Kapini before at Highlanders FC in Zimbabwe and at U20 level, so I think I should have a good stay,” Dube added.
The player will rejoin head coach Roger Palmgren’s team on Thursday after having gathered all his belongings ahead of the Durban relocation.
AmaZulu have also signed promising Durban Warriors midfielder Shaun Cramer on a three year deal.
According to General Manager Peter O’Connor the 19 year old will be loaned back to the feeder team (Warriors) for a year where he can gain more experience.
