DYNAMOS midfielder King Nadolo is a happy man after finally securing a Georgian visa enabling him to join his new employers FC Marani Tbilisi.
Nadolo signed for the Ligue 2 side a month ago, but had not moved to the former Soviet Republic, as his visa was still being processed.
“I am so happy, as I’ve been waiting impatiently for my visa. I’m so relieved that I have finally received the document,” said Nadolo.
He said he would soon be flying out to join his new team.
“As soon as all paperwork required is in place like travel insurance and some documents sent to my manager from the embassy, I will be on my way to Georgia. I can’t wait to link up with my new teammates,” said the 2019 Castle Lager Soccer Star of the Year finalist.
Nadolo first made his name at Highlanders where he spent three years from 2014 to 2017 before leaving as a free agent to join South African First Division side Witbank Spurs for the 2018 season.
But he did not last long across the Limpopo and returned home to join then Premier Soccer League debutants TelOne in Gweru.
When the team was relegated from the topflight league in its maiden season in 2019, he moved to Dynamos.
Nadolo started his football career at Circle Cement before moving to Tafara Rangers in Harare.
He joined the Dynamos juniors on the advice of former midfielder and coach Elvis “Chuchu” Chiweshe.
He was then spotted by a scout while playing for the Zimbabwe Copa Coca-Cola team in South Africa in a curtain raiser match during a 2010 World Cup game and snapped up by FC Alex in the South African Vodacom League.
Nadolo was introduced to Highlanders by former Zambian coach Kelvin Kaindu towards the end of the 2014 season and he quickly became a darling of the Bosso faithful.
He developed into one of the team’s outstanding players, with his dribbling skills and pace proving a handful for defenders, but recurring injuries prevented him from holding down a regular place in the team.
In Georgia, Nadolo is set to join his countryman and Warriors defender Alec Mudimu, who plays for Georgian champions Torpedo Kutaisi.
