Man in Black striker off to New Zealand

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

BA striker Abbu Zahid has landed a lucrative playing contract in New Zealand and will not feature for the Men in Black for the rest of the season.

Ba team manager Arvin Singh said Zahid was scouted by the Waitakere United officials during the Oceania Champions League playoffs in April.

Arvin said Zahid departed for New Zealand yesterday.

"We wish Abbu all the best in his future endeavours," he said.

"Abbu is a dedicated player. He will learn a lot in New Zealand.

"Surely his departure will create a vacuum in our attack. However, we have the likes of Samuela Nabenia and Saula Waqa from the Fiji U20 squad who are capable replacements."

Jonetani Ralulu, Alvin Singh and Malakai Tiwa are the other Ba players who are plying their trade overseas.

Meanwhile, Singh says that Ba will bounce back in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League after finishing fourth at the Vodafone Fiji FACT last weekend.
