Un­ter­see on loan to Em­poli

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - CLASSIS - Nick Said

BAFANA Bafana tar­get Joel Un­ter­see has fi­nally found a new home for this cam­paign af­ter sign­ing a sea­son-long loan with Ital­ian Serie B side Em­poli.

Un­ter­see had seen his first team prospects at gi­ants Ju­ven­tus di­min­ished and will be out on loan again for the fifth sea­son in a row af­ter previous stints at Swiss league side Vaduz and Bres­cia in Serie B last sea­son.

Bafana coach Stu­art Bax­ter has con­firmed he had opened the door for Un­ter­see‚ born in Rood­e­port but raised in Switzer­land‚ to rep­re­sent Bafana Bafana with an eye on the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia next year.

Un­ter­see is mostly a right-back‚ but can also fea­ture on the right-wing and made a huge im­pres­sion at Bres­cia last sea­son‚ where he made 39 ap­pear­ances.

Em­poli‚ based in Florence‚ were rel­e­gated from Serie A last sea­son af­ter fin­ish­ing 18th and are coached by Vin­cenzo Vi­varini.

Go­ing into the fi­nal day of last sea­son‚ Em­poli were out­side the rel­e­ga­tion zone‚ but failed to beat Palermo and were over­taken by Cro­tone‚ who se­cured an un­likely vic­tory over Lazio.– TimesLIVE
