Sodomba joins Libya's Ahly

HARARE - Zimbabwe international forward Edward Sadomba signed for Libyan side Ahly Benghazi on Tuesday.

Sadomba, who was a free agent since July 1, jetted into the Libyan capital yesterday before proceeding to Benghazi to sign for Ahly.

Details of Sadomba’s deal with the Libyan club were still sketchy by the time of going to press last night.

Ahly is the most supported club in Benghazi and is famous in Libya for its passionate, loyal and sometimes violent crowds, who stood by the club through frustrating times.

The 30-year-old former Harare United and Dynamos forward, who was on the books of Sudanese club Al-Hilal, spent the last six months on loan at Al Ittihad Kalba in the United Arab Emirates.

Sadomba’s contract with Al-Hilal ran out on June 30 and he was free to join any club of his choice.

It is a surprise that the Sudanese club let the Zimbabwean’s contract ran out without trying to renew it and cash in on him.

Sadomba scored 90 goals for Al-Hilal in 98 appearances between 2009 and 2013.

The Zimbabwean was prolific in front of goal especially in African inter-club competitions.

Sadomba won the Caf Champions League Golden Boot in 2011 and Caf Confederations Cup Golden Boot the following year.
