Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs star player, David Obua, has advised his countryman and new Amakhosi acquisition, Sula Matovu, to first acclimatise with the South African weather as well as playing regularly before thinking of being a hit in the PSL.

Chiefs announced yesterday that the winger has penned a three-year contract with them after impressing during the trials.

Obua, who had a successful career at Amakhosi, told Sport24 that Matovu has a big challenge on his hands and will first have to win a place in the Steve Khomphela’s side before he can think of having a successful spell with the Soweto giants.

“First of all, I’m very happy for Matovu for signing with Chiefs and I wish him a successful time there,” Obua said.

“Look, the first challenge for him is going to acclimatise to the South African weather, but he will also have to work hard to make the team because it will only be when he plays that he will settle easily,” Obua said.

The lanky utility player, who was mostly used as a left-back in his playing days, said that he has not watched Matovu recently, but is confident he will work hard to succeed at the Soweto side.

Obua joined Chiefs in 2005 and played for Amakhosi until 2008 before joining Scottish side, Heart of Midlothian.
