MADHANHANGA UP FOR GRABS
7 December 2017
FARAI Madhanhanga’s status could trigger a bidding war in the transfer market, with CAF Champions league representatives FC Platinum also expected to make an enquiry.
Madhananga still has a year with Harare City but the Sunshine Boys have since made it clear that they could loan out some high profile players who cannot go down to division one.
The highly-rated left back yesterday told H-Metro that he needed to talk to the club first before he can decide on the future, though indications are clubs are knocking on his door.
“I will need to talk to the club first. At the moment I cannot make a decision before I consult, so as soon as I talk to my club, I will then be in a position to state my position,” Madhanhanga said.
This week Harare City Secretary General Mathew Marara announced that they will be going down to division one while they have cancelled their CAF Confederation Cup ticket.
“We will approach the players as individuals to see the solution we can come up with. It is likely some will go on loan depending on the agreement. We are not really worried that we will lose a lot of players because we know we have enough players to use in division one because of our focus on players coming from our junior teams,” Marara told H-Metro.
A source close to the player said: “Clubs already know his situation and they are ready to pounce. It will only be upto the player on where he wants to go while Harare City could decide to loan him, with hope they will be back in the Premiership in 2019.”
Madhanhanga is disappointed they failed to help the team survive.
“It is does not make sense that a team good enough to win the Chibuku Super Cup can fail to avoid relegation.
“When you look at all the other games that we played, there is no one particular game you can say we were totally outclassed. We were just unlucky in the games that we played. We tried as much as we could but we still could not get the results that we wanted,” he said.
The left back, who has been in the Warriors set-up several times, will be expected to join a big team before the start of the 2018 season.
