Be Forward Wanderers budding midfielder Isaac ‘Tcheya’ Kaliati yesterday flew to South Africa where he is expected to undergo trials at Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Cape Town City FC.
Kaliati, who is expected back on March 21, said he was excited to undergo professional football trials for the first time.
“It’s a big step. I hope to impress the club’s technical panel,” he said.
Wanderers vice-general secretary Gift Mkandawire said the player, who has a month on his contract, left with the club’s blessings.
“We wish him all the best,” said Mkandawire.
If successful, Kaliati may be registered as a free agent despite the transfer window having closed.
The club has not yet exhausted its foreign quota after it registered four out of the five required foreigners.
They have Austrian Roland Putsche, Ghanain Joseph Adjei, Mozambican Edmilson Dove and Zimbabwean Tatenda Mkuruva.
Cape Town City FC is based in Cape Town and was formed in 2016 following the relocation of PSL’s Mpumalanga Black Aces franchise.
But the original club Cape Town City FC dates back to the 1960s.
They currently top the Absa Premiership standings with 38 points from 20 games following their latest 1-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns at Athlone Stadium last Friday. n
