FORMER Zanaco FC Midfielder Aubrey Funga has joined South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Ajax Cape Town FC on a five-year deal.

The Midfielder was officially unveiled by the club on yesterday as the urban warriors continue to bolster their attacking prowess.

Funga told that signing for Ajax Cape Town was a stepping stone for greater things in his career.

“This is a good place, a good thing to have on my CV and the perfect stepping stone for great things to follow because there are great players here, that have played here [at Ajax Cape Town], which serves as great motivation to take my football to the highest level,” said Funga.

“I want to be myself, play like I did at Zanaco, I am a goal scorer and goal creator; that [attribute] has helped all the teams I have played for and I think that will also help here. Those are qualities that can get you into any team.”
And club CEO Ari Efstathiou said he was excited by the arrival of the 26-year-old midfielder, whose versatility was impressive.

“Aubrey was scouted at the same time as Rodrick [Kabwe], between them they scored 24 goals for Zanaco when they won the league last year. They both have goals in them and we are definitely bringing an attacking flair to the team which is what we have been looking for,” said Efstathiou.

Funga is hoping to make his Ajax Cape Town debut against Bidvest Wits on February 7.
