Mabizela work permit granted

Posted on 21 August 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The club has succeeded in gaining a work permit for Mbulelo Mabizela.

Meanwhile club officials were working hard to finalise the paperwork with 22-year-old Mbulelo and Orlando Pirates in order that he should be available to play for us against Leeds United at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

The South African international captain was back in training at Spurs Lodge this afternoon.

Mbulelo is known as ‘Old John’ at home in South Africa but has been nicknamed ‘OJ’ by the Spurs players.

Bobby Convey, the USA international hoping to join us from DC United, will have his application for a work permit heard next week.
