IT’S all going from bad to worse for Lincoln Zvasiya.
Zimbabweans Abroad with Wellington Toni
After being dumped by Kaizer Chiefs and Greek side Crete, Zvasiya seemed to be on his way to National Division One side Royal Eagles until this weekend.
New coach of the South African side Duncan Lechesa has categorically stated he will not be signing the Warriors defender.
“I’m not signing Zvasiya,” the former FC Cape Town coach told Laduma.
He has been previously linked with Harare City at home, but that deal fell through as he pursued a move overseas, but now he might have to retrace his steps back to FC Platinum and start all over again.
Warriors midfielder Kuda Mahachi is still waiting for word from AS Monaco where he had a two-week trial, but in the meantime, he has featured in two matches for his South African club Mamelodi Sundowns as they concluded preparations for the 2014-2015 season.
Mahachi was in the starting XI in the 3-2 win over Ajax Cape Town over the weekend.
The former Chicken Inn and Highlanders star was involved in the Brazilians’ second goal when he exchanged passes with Punch Masenamela, resulting in Asavela Mbekile scrambling the ball home.
Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim told the club’s official website that they would strengthen their squad, but was not mentioning their names.
“We’ll need to strengthen if we’re going to meet our objectives. That’s a certainty. We’d like to put a full squad together as soon as possible. I know the board is doing everything necessary to ensure we have an even more competitive team,” he said.
“I understand the supporters’ concern about the arrival of new signings. We’re looking for the best solutions at the moment. The board is fully aware of this and is working on it.”
Milton Ncube also made his debut for Ajax last Friday.
Knowledge Musona’s long drawn move back to Kaizer Chiefs is still on track and could be concluded by Friday if the Warriors international fails to get a team in Europe.
Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter is desperate for the player after Kingston Nkhatha was injured against Orlando Pirates in the Carline Black Label final.
Musona also holds the key to Ovidy Karuru’s deal to Naturena as they have one space for a foreigner left.
Should Musona go to Europe, Karuru will be signed. But if Musona returns, Karuru could still be signed and loaned out.
In the Caf Champions League, Ali Sadiki’s TP Mazembe drew 0-0 with Zamalek to leave them in second place in Group A with seven points after two wins, a loss and a draw.
Sadiki arrived at TP two months ago, and in the build up to the match, he played 149 minutes, scoring once and providing two assists as the DRC giants completed a six-game tour of Tunisia.
