Cape Town - Newly-signed Maritzburg United striker
Yannick Zakri is looking forward to a new challenge in KwaZulu-Natal
after his struggles at Chloorkop.

Cape Town, stated that his unsuccessful stay at Sundowns is a closed
book and is eager to get going for Fadlu Davids' side..
"I'm happy with the team. We can work together. We can do the job
together. I'm happy with the coach, with everyone, he told the club's
"On the training field, the coach is a very good person. We are
training very hard on and off the field. Fadlu is a very nice person.
"We must forget about Sundowns and Ajax and let's focus on
Maritzburg, let's focus on the team, let's help the team and we will see
what happens later.
"This is not about only me. It's about the team. That's why I say we
will work together, we will fight together to win games together.
Alone I can't do anything."
