Injury plagues Uri-KhobÔÇÖs future
Since his move from Civics in Namibia to Amazulu in South Africa’s top flight league, Brave Warriors’ striker, Sadney Uri-Khob, has only played 142 minutes of football.
This is mainly due to a right foot injury he sustained during an international training session in Windhoek two weeks ago. He has only played in three games for Amazulu, which is positioned seventh in the ABSA premiership, since his N$685 000 move to Durban in July.
Uri-Khob, the star of the Brave Warriors 2013 Cosafa Castle Cup in Zambia, is yet to find the net for Amazulu.
“I haven’t settled in well since August but this injury throws everything into the jungle. I don’t know for how long I will be out. I only started against Mpumalanga Black Aces, Maritzburg United and as a sub against Mamelodi Sundowns in the league,” says Uri-Khob, adding, the club has given him a warm welcome and allowed him to take his time to recover completely.
Amazulu is also home to other Namibian players including Willem Mwedihanga, Larry Horaeb and Pineas Jakob while Petrus Shitembi has just started training with the club.
Uri-khob’s contract runs out in 2015.
“My dream was never to play in South Africa but in Europe. I need to make enough money to finish off the renovations I am currently doing for my mom’s house, then everything else will hopefully fall into place.”
