Windhoek – Tura Magic Football Club (FC) captain and Brave Warriors central defender, Charles ‘Chalo’ Hambira, has signed for South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Baroka FC.

The 28-year-old penned a two-year deal on 6 July.

Hambira, who has been with Tura Magic for the past four seasons, said this was a dream come true for him as he has been waiting for a professional contract all his life.

“I am very happy that I have finally got a professional contract. I will work hard to prove my worth in the team,” the defender said.

He said he would be leaving for South Africa on Tuesday, where he hoped his work permit would be sorted out so that he could start training with his new teammates.

Meanwhile, Tura Magic chairperson, Peter Nakurua, declined to comment on the issue, saying he is not aware of any deal and referred all questions to fellow club board member, Jacks Amaning.

Amaning also said he was not aware that the player has signed with any club outside the country, as he had travelled out of town over the weekend.

“Chalo called me on Friday requesting for a meeting, but I did not meet him as I was travelling. I will get to the office and find out more information before making any comment,” he said.

Amaning added that as a club, they will wait for Baroka to approach them and they will not stand in the way of any player who wishes to further his career outside Namibia borders. Hambira becomes the third Namibian player to play for ‘Bagaga’, as Baroka is famously known by their fans after recent Kaizer Chiefs FC signee, Virgil Vries, plied his trade there during the 2017/18 PSL season. Fellow Namibian, Ananias Gebhardt, also signed for the club last month. - Nampa
