Ramatlhakwane finally finds new home



Former Santos and Vasco da Gama striker Jerome Ramatlhakwane is poised to rejoin Mochudi Centre Chiefs in his homeland for the second half of the 2012/13 season.

Ramatlhakwane netted five goals for Botswana in qualifying for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, helping The Flames to their maiden continental finals.

But despite this success at international level, his club career has been a shambles. A series of contract disputes, injuries and failed trials mean the player has made just eight league starts for his various clubs since leaving Chiefs five years ago.

The 27-year-old is now hoping to put himself back in the shop window with a good second half of the season in his homeland, though he has not played a club game since June 2011.

He has been on trial at various PSL clubs over the past 12 months in the hope of earning a contract, including SuperSport United.

Chiefs are just waiting on the paperwork from Safa to complete his signing, with the Botswana league set to resume tomorrow after the festive season break.

Chiefs lead the table with 12 wins and three draws from their 15 matches to date, six points ahead of second-placed Gaborone United.
