Gustavo Paez says he jumped at the opportunity to continue his career in South Africa by joining Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM).
The 30-year-old Venezuelan striker spent two years in the Premiership with Kaizer Chiefs, having joined the club in 2017 from Estudiantes.
His time at Chiefs was cut short ahead of two brief spells with Atletico Venezuela and Mineros back in his home country.
He has now been snapped up by the newly formed top-flight side and is eager to prove he still has something to offer.
Speaking to FARPost, Paez said: "They (TTM) are giving me a nice opportunity to restart in South Africa. I was always happy here and loved the South African people, so I said why not when there was a chance to come.
"I know Tshakhuma is a new club but I accepted the challenge. When I went to Venezuela I was playing for a good club, we played in Copa Libertadores, but we stopped the whole year due to Covid-19.
"But for me I am taking this as a big opportunity to play and stay for a long time in South Africa."
