SuperSport United have signed defender Ayabulela Magqwaka from Ajax Cape Town on a six-month loan deal. The young defender will be with the club until the end of the current season. Mainly a centre back, Magqwaka can also play at right back.
Last season the 19-year-old was ever present in the National Under-20 squad where he captained the side to the COSAFA Cup in Lesotho. “I am joining a big club that has a proven record when it comes winning trophies,” says Magqwaka. “The team and fans can expect a player that has a great will to win and compete at the highest level. I see this as a great opportunity for me to revive my career and contributing positively to the success of the team.”
“He’s a very young and highly-rated defender, and to get him from under the noses of some top clubs is amazing. He’ll create further competition for places in our defence.” said SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews.
