2017 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) top scorer Masoud Juma Choka has landed in South Africa ready for the next chapter in his career following his recent three-year deal move to Premeir Soccer League (PSL) side Cape Town City from Kariobangi Sharks.
The top rated striker who won the KPL golden boot last year with 17 goals, was snapped up by the Benni McCarthy coached side in mid-December last year though the official announcement was made known in early January.
He arrives in time as the team prepares to face-off against Free State Stars in a league clash on Saturday 17 at the Goble Park stadium from 9:15 PM EAT.
"Masoud Juma has arrived in CT and was officially inducted into the #CTCFC family today!" posted the club in their official twitter handle.
City are currently on a three game winning streak all on similar 1-0 scorelines against Amazulu, Mamelodi Sundowns and Platinum Stars.
Aside from Masoud's arrival, City were boosted by the return to training of three players; Judas Moseamedi, Mpho Matsi and Ayanda Patosi, all of whom will be eyeing a role in Benni's line up for the upcoming duel.
Prior to his departure, two of his former coaches spoke highly of the 'bully-in-the-box' who set the Kenyan scene alight with 25 goals in all competitions last year
Wished the best
"Masoud has matured and I feel he is ripe to go professional. I have watched him grow and I believe he is now mature and can make it big anywhere. We wish him all the best in South Africa and in his future endeavors," said Salim Babu, his former coach at Sony Sugar, the club he played for in between Bandari and Sharks.
"When he turned out for my club (Kambakia Christian College in Meru) he was a little raw, but you could always see he had great potential. Am glad at his quick leap to pro football and believe he will blossom at the Cape." added another former coach George Maina
City is currently placed second in the 16-team log after 16 rounds with 27 points,four points short of leaders Sundowns.
