Moyo misses out on Zambian title


ZIMISELENI Moyo’s Zesco United missed out on the MTN/FAZ Super League title at the weekend despite a 1-0 win over Nchanga Rangers on Sunday as Nkana Red Devils powered to their 12th title.


Nkana finished with 59 points and Zesco with 57 points, but at least Moyo will get an opportunity to play in the Caf Confederation Cup next season.

Moyo is a former Railstars player and has been hunted by former Zambian coach Herve Renard for a place in the Chipolopolo senior national team. Despite being a consistent performer in the Zambian Premiership he has been ignored by successive Warriors coaches.

There was little action over the weekend due to an international break, but Zimbabwean players plying their trade for Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa were in Gaborone, Botswana over the weekend for a clash with Mochudi Centre Chiefs.

Kaizer won the match 3-0 with Kingston Nkhatha, Mathew Rusike and Willard Katsande making the trip while Elvis Meleka starred for the Botswana side. Rusike was involved in the third goal as his cross set up Lehlohonolo Majoro for his second of the match.

Rusike is yet to play in the league this season and with his return to the team and the injury to Lucky Baloyi, he is set to be recalled after the international break.

Still in the same country, former Warriors coach Madinda Ndlovu has snared South African international Manqoba Ngwenya to his Township Rollers side. Ngwenya has signed a two year deal.

Although Rollers’ executive manager Phuthego Setete said the club had not signed the player, sources claimed Ngwenya was now a Popa after penning a two-year deal.

“We have exhausted our foreign quota and therefore cannot sign him,” Setete told local daily Mmegi.

But the sources said one of the foreign players, likely William Kupera, will be allowed to leave the club to open space for Ngwenya. Before the Rollers move, Ngwenya was being courted by Premier League’s new boys, Orapa United.

Kupera is a former Black Rhinos player and could soon be heading home if he does not get another team to play for in the Botswana league.

In South Africa, Tafadzwa Rusike and Lionel Mtizwa are still waiting for the January transfer window as they continue their search for clubs. Tafadzwa was offloaded by Ajax Cape Town while there was no place for Mtizwa at Mamelodi Sundowns who made 16 signings in August.
