FORMER Zimbabwe Saints central midfielder Thomas Nkomo has joined Namibian outfit Sporting Julihno on a one- year deal.
The 25-year-old former Falakhe FC midfielder joins the Namibian outfit on an undisclosed fee as he looks to boost his chances of getting more game time.A� The now defunct Falakhe was in the Zifa Southern Region Division Two league.
a�?I am delighted to have signed to such a club and it will give me a platform to prove myself so that I can be able to play in more competitive leagues in Africa or even Europe,a�? said Nkomo.
Sero,A� as Nkomo is warmly known in the local football circles,A� said a number of local clubs had expressed interest in him, but he chose the Namibian side because it offered him more than what other clubs were offering.
a�?A number of other clubs back home expressed interest in me but Julihno managed to persuade me and agreed to my termsa�?.
The short and boastful midfielder says that Europe is where he is going and maybe one day he will get a call to play for the national team, despite the age of 25 which is the prime time in a footballera��s career.
a�?I just hope that one day I will get a chance to represent my national team and play in Europe, especially in Englanda�?, said Nkomo.
