Despite joining up with his new teammates in time to get up to speed ahead of Saturday’s first game of the DSTV Premiership, Anye Derick Fru of Maritzburg United FC will be unable to make his first Premiership appearance for the Club due to administrative reasons.
The player can’t feature in Saturday’s clash against Sekhukhuna United at the Harry Gwalya Stadium due to issues related to acquisition off his work permit.
The goalkeeper signed from Cotonsport has been in South Africa for two weeks while the club officials invest time to facilitate the establishment of the permit.
The club’s efforts have secured a work permit for new signings; Bongani Sam (Orlando Pirates, loan), Given Mashikinya (Royal AM), Bonginkosi Makume (Baroka FC), Karim Kimvuidi (Motema Pempe, DR Congo), Brian Hlongwa (Uthongathi), Siboniso Conco (Golden Arrows), Tshidiso Monamodi (Royal AM), Isaac Masia (Black Leopards) and Thabo Moloisane (Cape Town All Stars).
The ex Panthere’s keeper has paperwork issue means he will watch from the stands as coach John Maduka’s team go for a strong start.
Anye, who played a pivotal role to secure second consecutive domestic championship in Cameroon last season, is waiting for his work permit to be issued.
Goalkeeper King Ndlovu, who is also a new recruit from Marumo Gallants, is set to start between the sticks this weekend and again next Tuesday against Kaizer Chiefs in Johannesburg.
Once Anye is cleared, coach John Maduka will have more options in goal and likely to give the Cameroon international his chance.
