Ubuntu Cape Town striker Ranga Chivaviro joins Baroka FC
The transfer was confirmed by the National First Division club on Tuesday and comes after the 25-year-old netted 13 goals in all competitions last season‚ despite missing the final two months of the season with an ankle sprain.
“I’m really excited for Ranga’s move‚” said Ubuntu Cape Town coach Casey Prince.
“Ranga was a big part of our success last year and we’re thankful for his efforts.
“Ranga was interested in improving and growing his game so that he could go to the next level. I personally enjoyed spending time with Ranga off the field.
“He’s a man of character‚ faith‚ and integrity which will make him a valuable member of the team at Baroka.”
