Brave Warrior Larry Horaeb has signed a two year contract with newly promoted PSL side AmaTuks from the University of Pretoria.
The 20-year-old right back flew into South Africa on Monday afternoon and is looking forward to the new challenge ahead of him.
“This is a big opportunity for me and I will give my best to succeed over there.”
The deal materialised although Horaeb still had a contract with Ramblers FC in the Namibian Premier League until the end of next season.
“No club here in Namibia can offer Larry what he is getting now in South Africa, so we didn`t want to stand in his way”, said Ramblers executive member Jorgé da Purificaҫáo, who had coached the team in the second part of last season.
“This boy has the potential to make a big impact in the PSL and who knows, maybe we will see him play in Europe in a few years time”, added da Purificaҫáo.
Asked about the transfer money, the Ramblers manager didn`t want to reveal any figures, but stated that his club got “a small compensation.”
Horaeb is thankful that Jorgé and his brother Nelson da Purificaҫáo made the move possible. “They got in contact with the agent, who eventually sealed the deal.”
During the last season Horaeb was one of the outstanding players in a Ramblers side that was far too inconsistent to compete for the league title and finished in seventh spot at the end.
In the 2010/2011 campaign, Horaeb had a great first season in the NPL when he showed some top performances as a right wing for Sportklub Windhoek (SKW).
Under new national coach Bernard Kaanjuka, the youngster has developed into a regular starter in the Brave Warriors line-up.
