Banyana Banyana striker Jermaine Seoposenwe will ply her trade in Portugal following her unveiling by Sporting Braga this week.
The 26-year-old has signed a two-year deal with Braga after seeing out her six-month contract at Spanish side Real Betis.
Seoposenwe joined Betis in February, but her stay there was reduced to just three appearances in all competitions after the season was called off due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Now the Cape Town-born player has found herself a home alongside fellow Banyana team-mate Thembi Kgatlana, who is on the books of Benfica in the Campeonato Nacional Feminino, a semiprofessional league for women’s association football clubs.
“I definitely hope to start well, be in touch with the team and fight for all the trophies. That is the focus – working hard to achieve these goals. Liga BPI [the Portuguese women’s league] is a championship with players with a lot of skill and technique. I am excited to be on the pitch and to start training and playing with my team-mates,” Seoposenwe told the Braga website.
The former JVW FC striker also had a stint with Gintra Universitetas in Luthuania, where she tasted action in this season’s Uefa Women’s Champions League with two appearances, while she also helped her side to the league and cup triumph last year.
Braga finished third in the abandoned season. She joined when the club had just released 17 players. Seoposenwe is with Braga for their pre-season training, which started last week. – Safa.net
