Marere opts to stay at Platinum


Castle Lager Premier Soccer League outfit FC Platinum will re-register striker Benjamin Marere when the second Zifa transfer window period opens on July 1.

Marere was rejected by the cash-rich platinum miners and was dropped from the Orange Caf Champions League squad at the beginning of the season.

The forward, who is contracted to Northern Division One side Twalumba, formerly Highfield United, joined FC Platinum last season from champions Dynamos on a one-year loan deal.

FC Platinum secretary-general Philemon Muvengwa yesterday told NewsDay Sport that the flying winger is training with the club and will be cast back into the roll when the mid-season window opens.

We will register him when the window period opens in July. He is our player and he is training with the club at the moment, Muvengwa said.

After he was left out of the Champions League squad, Marere packed his bags for Harare and trained with Caps United in March amid reports that had linked him to Bulawayo football giants Highlanders or a return to Dynamos.

Ngoma sprained his ankle when Platinum lifted the Bob 88 Super Cup beating Hwange 2-0 at Rufaro Stadium on February 26.

Donald has been doing light training. He had been in plaster after he sustained a sprained ankle, but his coming back into the game will depend on the doctors that are assessing him, Muvengwa said.

The star-studded Platinum squad, who also have in their fold Allan Gahadzikwa and Mitchelle Katsvairo is also expecting to be joined by Botswana Zebras and Mochudi Centre Chiefs striker Joel Mogorosi in July.

Mogorosi, who missed out on the Zebras failed 2012 Equatorial Guinea-Gabon-hosted Afcon campaign after sustaining a fractured arm at a training camp in Cameroon, is reported to be joining Platinum on a record P400 000 three-year deal.
