Kambindu’s decision will benefit Warriors – Kahiriri
Football agent Olsen Kahiriri said the transfer of Elmo Kambindu to the South African Premier League would open doors for more Namibian players.
Kambindu, who is heading to Sekhukhune United, became the latest Namibian player to sign for a DStv Premiership club from South Africa, joining Mamelodi Sundowns forward Peter Shalulile, Deon Hotto of the Orlando Pirates and Ananias Gebhardt of Baroka United.
According to Kahiriri, the term of the deal is two and a half years, which will see the lanky striker at the club until the 2024 season.
âThe duration of the contract is two and a half years, subject to renewal, depending on his performance at the club. Everything will be in his power to extend his stay, âhe declared.
The agent noted that signing a contract in one of the best leagues on the continent is very exciting, given that his previous contract with the Mozambican club (Costa do Sol) has ended. He added that the move would also benefit the national team.
âIt’s exciting for the player. He is happy to have signed for a Premier Soccer League (PSL) club where he hopes to stand out among fellow national team members such as Shalulile, Hotto and Vries. This decision will also be very beneficial for the national team.
Kahiriri noted that the move has now proven that PSL teams are now paying attention to Namibia.
âWe believe this will also help enable more PSL clubs to seek more talent in Namibia. “
Kambindu, nicknamed “Wazza”, was instrumental in Namibia’s victory over Togo in September last year in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, which saw him score the only goal Match.
He has played for the national team 20 times, scoring eight goals.
The DStv Premiership is only due to return in February due to the Africa Cup of Nations being played in Cameroon in January.
