Former Super Eagles striker Obinna Victor Nsofor has joined South Africa Premier league side, Cape Town City on a one year deal.
The former West Ham striker left German Bundesliga to side SV Darmstadt during this summer on a mutual consent.
The PSL side announced his capture on Tuesday night and he will wear Jersey number 17.
Cape Town City will be Nsofor’s 8th team after he left Nigeria to sojourn abroad after he had played for Enyimba, Plateau United and Kwara united.
The 30-year-old has 12-years’ experience playing across Europe’s top leagues, having started at Italian side Chievo in 2005 before an unsuccessful stint at Inter Milan.
Loan spells followed at Malaga and West Ham United — where Obinna played alongside current Cape Town City manager Benni McCarthy – before a more stable four-year stay with top Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow.
An elated Nsofor said during his unveiling post on the club’s instagram page, “It’s a pleasure for me to join this club. I saw a club that has ambition to succeed. I’m here to contribute to the success of this team,” he said.
Nsofor has represented Nigeria at various level from Flying Eagles, Dream Team and Super Eagles.
He was part of Nigeria Dream team that won silver medal at Beijing Olympics in 2008.
