Former Kaizer Chiefs player Hendrick 'Pule' Ekstein left Naturena earlier this year and many supporters were sad to see him go.

It then took many by surprise when he achieved his dream move to Europe when Sabah FC signed him - albeit in the Azerbaijan league.

The diminutive playmaker started the season well with some key contributions, but seemingly faded away, as he was slowly dropped out of the line-up.

However, Ekstein's fortunes changed after the former coach Elshad Ahmadov was sacked following a series of poor results.
