Cape Town City announce Masoud Juma signing
Kariobangi Sharks and Kenyan Premier League (KPL) top scorer Masoud Juma has completed a move to South African club Cape Town City FC.
The Absa Premiership outfit announced the signing on Tuesday via their social media pages on an undisclosed fee.
Cape Town beat bids from European, Egyptian and other South African clubs to land their man who has four caps with the national team.
Juma who scored 17 KPL goals and 26 in total across all club competitions this season will provide much needed attacking threat for his new club with his new Coach Benni McCarthy expressing faith on the 21-year-old old.
“We’ve had to rely on our possessional dominance to win games. Most of our goals come from midfielders. We’re building a team for the future so it’s nice to start putting together a group of young promising strikers who can score goals for the club going forward.
“At just 21, Juma has proven to be Africa’s most prolific goalscorer. His quality is evident, as is the interest for him in Europe. He is still young and needs to be nurtured. But once he adapts and settles in, he has all the makings of a lethal out and out nine,” McCarthy said.
Juma will receive his work permit this week and fly to Cape Town on JAN8 where he will meet his new teammates and begin preparing for CTCFC’s domestic and CAF campaigns.
