Ghanaian enforcer James Kotei is elated with his move to South African giants Kaizer Chiefs.

Kotei, 26, officially signed a three-year deal with Amakhosi two weeks ago after ending his 24-month stay with Tanzanian Premier League champions Simba FC where he rose to become the fulcrum of the team.

The one-time Liberty Professionals player mentioned that it is a great move for him as he continues to up his game.

“I am very glad for this move to Kaizer Chiefs as I continue to get to the top of my career,” Kotei told

“My motive for joining this beautiful club is to be part of their success and to make the team achieve what they wishing for. This club has a great history and it is one of the best on the African continent.”

The tireless anchor man who was voted as the best midfielder in the Tanzanian League for the 2018/2019 season also thanked his former club for the opportunity they gave him and wished them success in their endeavours.

“Simba will still be in my heart; just wish them well in the upcoming season and I’m praying they retain the title.”

Kotei was groomed at Mohammed Polo’s Soccer Academy in Accra before joining Liberty Professionals. He later played for BA United on loan after which he signed for Omani side Al Oroubah before moving to Simba SC in 2017.

He is managed by former Asante Kotoko and Ghana Black Meteors skipper Yussif Chibsah.
