Maritzburg United turn down ex-Kaizer Chiefs winger Edmore Chirambadare

The former Amakhosi winger is still searching for a club after he failed to land a contract with the Team of Choice

After parting ways with Kaizer Chiefs a few weeks ago, Zimbabwean winger Edmore Chirambadare has stopped training with Maritzburg United.

Media reports emerged last week that the former Chicken Inn player was training with the Team of Choice with an aim to impress coach Fadlu Davids.

However, it has now been revealed that Davids has already filled his foreign quota and won't be signing the left-footed winger.

It has also been reported that the club is still assessing ex-Chiramabadare’s Amakhosi teammate, Keagan Buchanan and former Bidvest Wits midfielder Jabulani Shongwe.

Nonetheless, Chirambadare will now have to continue his search to find a new football home in the South African Premier Soccer League (PSL). 

The Warriors international is a free agent after leaving the Soweto giants after just two seasons at the club. 

Last season, he failed to command a regular spot in the starting XI and was subsequently deemed surplus to requirements at Naturena.

"Ed (Edmore) has left Maritzburg United. The coach was very polite and honest. The club has already exhausted the foreign quota,” Ngobeni told IOL.

“He told us that he likes the boy but doesn't want to sign him and loan him out," Ngobeni explained.

"We are still assessing few options and we will take it from there," continued the agent.

Having the likes of Richard Ofori (Ghana), Brian Onyango (Kenya), Andrea Fileccia (Belgium), and Australia’s Liam Youlley as well as Yazid Atouba of Cameroon on their books, the side from the KwaZulu-Natal midlands could not find a space for Chirambadare.
