United: Look to Ghanaian to beef up striking department

2013-07-19 00:00

MARITZBURG United are making serious strides in their attempt to beef up their striking department after their top goal scorer last season, Cuthbert Malajila, packed his bags for Mamelodi Sundowns.

Yakubu Mohammad, a 23-year-old Ghanaian striker who played for Ashanti Gold in his native country last season, is currently on trial at the club, commercial manager Younus Kadodia told The Witness yesterday.

Ernst Middendorp’s troops have already strengthened their midfield and defence with the signings of Robyn

Johannes, Ashley Hartog, Thokozani Sekotlong and

Nhlanhla Vilakazi.
