Maritzburg's new signing 'a motivational speaker and writer'
Maritzburg United chairman Farook Kadodia says new signing Gabriel Nyoni is a top player on the pitch as well as an educated motivational speaker and a writer off it.
Nyoni impressed coach Eric Tinkler during a recent trial period and was handed a three-year contract by the Pietermaritzburg-based outfit.
The 27-year-old is set to follow in the footsteps of other Zimbabweans such as Cuthbert Malajila and Evans Rusike who also made their name at the Team of Choice.
Kadodia told his team's official website: "Coach Eric Tinkler was very impressed with what he saw from Gabriel and we believe the player will be a very good addition to our squad for next season.
"He has penned a three-year deal and we would like to welcome him to our club and to the City of Pietermaritzburg.
"A player's character is also very important when considering a new signing, and apart from his soccer talents, Gabriel is a well-rounded individual with a Bachelor of Commerce Honours degree in Marketing, as well as a motivational speaker and a writer."
