Amazulu has signed, Taariq Fielies, from Cape Town City on a two-year contract with an option to renew for a further season.
Usuthu president, Sandile Zungu confirmed the capture of the 31-year-old defender. “We’re pleased to announce the signing of Taariq Fielies from Cape Town City. He has completed his medicals and will join his teammates with immediate effect,” Zungu said.
“He has been one of the Citizen’s pillars at the heart of defence for over 4 seasons. We welcome him to the team.”
The Cape Town-born joins two days after the signing of Ben Motshwari from Orlando Pirates. “I am looking forward to many challenges, great ones obviously. I know a few guys, and I played with a few guys before and we’re obviously used to seeing one another at the tunnel. Now we’re teammates,” Fielies said.
“I think from what I’ve seen, the coach [Pablo Franco Martin] is putting in more of a footballing side. I know AmaZulu likes having the ball, and possession football and I can see the coach is helping them improve on that. I am looking forward to working with him and my new teammates,” he concluded.
