Heartland resigns former FC Cape Town striker


Former FC Cape Town and Jomo Cosmos striker, Peter Okechukwu Nwadike, has rejoined former club, Heartland FC of Owerri.

Heartland FC signed the striker who became a free agent after his contract with Club Ethopien ran out, in a bid to bolster their striking options and become more potent in front of goal.

“​I am back to Heartland with lots of experience from South Africa.” Nwadike said.

He first joined the Naze Millionaires in the 2009/2010 season and went ahead to score the winner in the first leg of the CAF Champions League final which Heartland won 2-1 against TP Mazembe but went in to lose the return leg 1-0 and miss out on the title.

Nwadike left the next season and had one season stints with Royal Zulu, FC Cape Town and Jomo Cosmos all of South Africa before moving to Ethiopia where he featured for EEPCO FC Addis Ababa for three season before joining Club Ethopien where he has been released after playing out his one year contract.

Heartland will hope his wealth of experience will help them avoid relegation and target a continental finish this season.
