News Release

Pittsburgh, PA-The Riverhounds welcome the return of Thabiso `Boyzzz' Khumalo for the 2011 season, pending USL and USSF approval. Boyzzz returns to Pittsburgh after two year stint with DC United.

Boyzzz played for the Riverhounds in 2008 as an outside attacker and gained the interest of DC United's General Manager, Dave Kasper. Following the Riverhounds season, Boyzzz went on loan to DC and his performance landed him a contract to play for one of Major League Soccer's most respected Clubs for the 2009 and 2010 seasons.

The Riverhounds are excited to bring Boyzzz back to Pittsburgh for the inaugural USL PRO season. His exposure to the highest level of soccer in America will bring the experience and training mentality of a true professional to every training session.

"Boyzzz's experience, pace and creativity on the field will add a different dynamic to our philosophy," comments Head Coach Justin Evans. "His ability to attack one-on-one and get behind the defense should create problems for opposing defenders."
