Namibian internationals Larry Horaeb and midfielder Sadney Urikhob say they are looking forward to settling in at AmaZulu after joining the club ahead of the 2013/14 season.
Horaeb arrived from Namibian outfit Ramblers FC, while Urikhob joined from Civics FC but both players are looking forward to fitting into coach Craig Rosslee’s plan of moulding the squad into an attack-minded unit.
“I like to attack a lot so it’s in my system,” said Horaeb. “I’m a right-back who enjoys going up so it’s a good thing for me and we’ll see how it’s going to work.”
His words were echoed by Urikhob, who stated: “I’m an attacking player, from midfield going forward, so I think it’s the best thing that the coach also likes attacking football.
“I think I’ll gel well with the team and obviously we want to win things this season.”
The duo are currently with the Brave Warriors ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Kenya and they believe their international experience will help them to make a smooth transition in the Premier Soccer League.
“We started playing for the national team at Under-17 and all the experience we’ve picked up until we went to the big team is going to help a lot,” said Horaeb. “I think it’s a positive to play in the national team and it’s going to help a lot.”
Meanwhile, Urikhob believes the similarities between Namibian and South African football will help them to adapt quicker in their debut season for Usuthu.
“The national team is always the highest level so if you’re playing for your senior national team it means you have something,” said Urikhob.
“Our (Namibian) football and South African football is almost the same; it’s just the facilities and the money that is not the same. In terms of speed and all those things – it’s the same.”
Urikhob made his PSL debut during the 2-1 loss to Mpumalanga Black Aces, while Horaeb followed suit during the 2-1 win over Ajax Cape Town.
