Dynamos midfielder King Nadolo is excited after he finally secured a Georgian visa enabling him to join his new employer 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. He said:
I am so happy, as I’ve been waiting impatiently for my visa. I’m so relieved that I have finally received the document.
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.
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.
Nadolo 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.
He 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 spent three years at Bosso, 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 will not be the first Zimbabwean national to ply his trade in Georgia as Warriors defender Alec Mudimu currently plays for Georgian champions Torpedo Kutaisi.
