TS Galaxy Football Club is thrilled to announce the signing of Vuyo Mere, the seasoned right-back who was previously in the books of Swallows FC.
Mere has penned an 18-month deal with the Rockets. He boasts a wealth of experience in the elite league having risen to prominence back in 2001.
TS Galaxy FC President Tim Sukazi explained the importance of the acquisition of Mere.
“We are quite delighted to have secured a player of Vuyo’s caliber. I have always regarded him as a ‘Dani Alves’ of South African football. He is a born leader who has a lot of knowledge to impart amongst our young crop of players. He certainly still has a lot to contribute in the field of play despite his many years in the game.”
Mere has enjoyed a glittering career having captured two league titles under his belt with Mamelodi Sundowns.
Over the years he has played for the likes of Hellenic, Sundowns, Platinum Stars, and Bidvest Wits.
The veteran right-back is synonymous with success. He propelled an unfashionable Platinum Stars side to greatness a few years back winning the MTN8 and the Telkom Knockout.
He is excited to join the Rockets and has set his sights on making an instant impact.
“I’m very delighted to have joined a young and ambitious team in TS Galaxy FC as they look at improving their position in the league. I’m aligning my goals with the team’s objectives. TS Galaxy FC wants to achieve better and I’m looking forward to contributing to the success of this young and exciting club,” Mere explained.
Mere has also amassed 10 international caps for Bafana Bafana.
“TS Galaxy FC goals and mine are the same. TS Galaxy FC is the new kid on the block but already the club has a rich history and I want to be part of that. This is a great team with a great chairman. I want to write my name in the history books of TS Galaxy FC,” he added.
Mere’s experience will be key in helping the club avoid relegation.
“Consistency is going to be the key in the second round of the season. We have 13 cup finals to play. The team showed major refinements in the later stage of the first-round matches. I want to contribute to turning things around with my experience.” Mere elaborated.
TS Galaxy head coach Sead Ramovic couldn’t hide his excitement about the arrival of Mere.
“Vuyo comes with experience. That is going to be the key if you look at improving our situation on the log. His guidance, leadership qualities, and experience will help us. He has been with us for one day but I can tell that he is a hard-working person.” Ramovic explained.
