Tefu Mashamaite to NYCFC?

New York City Football Club held their first training session with Frank Lampard on Wednesday, but that was not the only news to come out of the training session. South African center back Tefu Mashamaite also trained with the squad. Mashamaite is reportedly undergoing a 10-day trial with the club.

Below you will find the picture of Mashamaite at training (he is the one sliding).

A backline of Angelino – Shay Facey – Mashamaite – Andoni Iraola could give NYCFC a completely revamped defense and change their team completely.

Mashamaite is currently free agent, and would be a free transfer for NYCFC. He has never played outside of South Africa, playing for two different South African clubs, Bidvest Vits and Kaizer Chiefs. He is currently 30-years-old.

In 164 appearances in the Premier Soccer League (not to be confused with the English Premier League), Mashamaite has 13 goals.

At the Premier Soccer League end of season awards, Mashamaite was awarded heavily winning Footballer of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season and Absa Premiership Defender of the Season.

Mashamaite would be a strong addition for NYCFC.
