Boxall secures MLS move

Former SuperSport United defender Michael Boxall has returned to the MLS in America after signing for Minnesota United, his new club has confirmed.

New Zealand international Boxall left SuperSport at the end of last month after failing to agree terms on a new deal. He has quickly found a new home in the MLS though, where he previously played for Canadian club Vancouver Whitecaps in 2011 and 2012.

“We are really pleased to have added a player of his quality. He is a versatile player, can play right-back, can play centre-back,” said Minnesota coach Adrian Heath, a former Everton striker. “He’s got experience on the international stage with New Zealand and he’s gotten better as his career has progressed.

“We think he is a player who is going to push everybody for a starting role on this team moving forward, we know he is chomping at the bit to get going.”

Boxall enjoyed a successful two-year stay at SuperSport, during which time he scored in the winner in the Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates in 2016.

He missed out on featuring in the 2017 decider against the same opposition as he was competing for New Zealand in the Fifa Confederations Cup in Russia.
