Chippa turn to Namibia for new striker



Chippa United are to sign the Namibian international striker Wilko Risser on a contract for the rest of the season, depending on whether he can get local papers.

Risser, whose elder brother also played for the Brave Warriors, is a old-fashioned centre forward with a burly presence and has played in Europe, albeit at a low level.

He played against Bafana Bafana when Namibia provided warm-up opposition in Durban ahead of the 2010 World Cup finals.

He can qualify to play as a South African in the PSL because he was born in Namibia before its independence from South Africa in 1990.

The 30-year-old from Windhoek had spent several weeks on trial at Chippa, having been at Bloemfontein Celtic before that.

He has played at several German amateur clubs and was on the books at Bundesliga club Schalke 04 but did not get a professional contract.

Last year he spent a few months playing in Malta and then joined Aldershot Town in League Two, the fourth tier of English football, where he scored three goals last season but did not have his contract renewed.

Chippa coach Farouk Abrahams said he was excited by the prospect of signing Risser, who he predicted might prove a sensation in the second half of the season.
