Flames captain Limbikani ‘Pupa’ Mzava has signed a two-year contract with South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit Golden Arrows.
Mzava confirmed in a telephone interview yesterday from his new base in Durban that he has sealed the deal.
“The deal has already been finalised and I look forward to a new lease of life at Arrows,” he said.
Before finalising the deal, Mzava had been linked with possible moves to Orlando Pirates and French Ligue One side OGC Nice.
“There were prospects of attending a trial at Nice, but that has been shelved for now.
“As for Pirates, they also showed serious interest, but in the end I had to make a decision which was good for my career. Of course, they are a big team and joining them would have offered me a bigger challenge, but I had to look at the big picture,” he said.
Last month, the South African media reported that Pirates had snapped up the former Mpumalanga Black Aces versatile defender.
Mzava was one of Aces’ star players who helped the team secure a top four finish in the Absa Premiership this past season.
New Black Aces owner John Comitis had confirmed that the 22-year-old would be joining the Buccaneers for the 2016/17 campaign.
