De Reuck, who made a total of 94 appearances across all competition for Maritzburg, says he is relishing the chance to hit the ground running at his new club
‘This is something I’ve always wanted for myself. Sundowns has been the best club in South Africa for a long time and I want to be part of that. I am really really excited,’ De Reuck told his club’s official website.
