Bon Voyage Dennis Masina  

Print this page  | Email this article to a friend

Black Aces legend Dennis Masina has been released to end his career back in his native Swaziland.

The former Gold City Giants midfielder and assistant coach has officially joined ambitious MTN National First Division side Matsapha United. Masina spent a number of successful years in South Africa featuring for the likes of Orlando Pirates, Supersport United and many years at Black Aces.

'Yuki' as Masina is commonly known in football circles, made a name for himself in the colours of Aces, where he is held in high esteem. His contribution to the team’s success is hugely appreciated by the club’s management, coaches and fans. Masina is one of the hardest working players ever signed by Aces. He left a lasting impression and will never be forgotten by the Gold City Giants faithful fans.

During his time in the PSL, he won the league title and the MTN 8 cup while he featured prominently for his national team. The Mbabane born talisman is one of the finest talents to emerge from Swaziland in recent years and his return to his country of birth will definitely help unearth more raw talent. Masina is a good ambassador of Swaziland as he is a disciplined professional athlete and true gentleman.

The dreadlock midfielder’s decision to return to his country of birth will surely have a positive impact on the younger players, especially those coming through the ranks of Abafana BeStayela youth structures. The fans are excited to have their hero back and cannot wait to see him in action. Aces always knew that the day will come when Masina has to return home, while we understand and support his decision.

Our wish is that we had more time with him at the club as he was more than a player to us. Masina was also a good leader on and off the field as well. Aces are grateful to be associated with a true professional like Masina and we wish him all the best in his new role at Matsapha United. No matter where he goes, Aces will always be his home.

Matsapha Uniteds gain is in a small way credited to Alex Aces after Masina was brought out of retirement at the beginning of the season.

Club chairman Mario Morfou was sad to release Masina but understood that he wanted to end his career in Swaziland.

"All the best to one of my favourite Aces players of all-time!"

 Farewell Yuki.
