Sport 24 – CAPE TOWN, Former Bloemfontein Celtic and University of Pretoria striker Atusaye Nyondo has gone on trial with Iran’s Shakr Khodrou FC.
Nyondo was most recently being assessed by Black Leopards though he failed to win a deal with Lidoda Duvha after two weeks.
Nonetheless, the 28-year-old, who hit 14 goals over two seasons in 2013/14 and 2014/15 for University of Pretoria, says he is headed to the Persian Pro Gulf League club.
He told KickOff: “I stayed with them [Leopards] for two weeks and they didn’t say anything to me, so I left to go home because I was needed.
“I lost my grandmother, but then the team from Iran called me to come train with them.
“They have been following me for some time now. They have been watching some of my games.”
