DEFENDER Method Mwanjali, who is on the books of South African Premiership side Mamelodi Sundowns, remains in the dark about his future at Chloorkop, and has been pushed to train alone.

According to Kick Off, Mwanjali was pushed to train alone in the gym after failing to clinch a move away from the club prior to the closure of the previous transfer window after it became apparent that he was not in the club’s plans for this season.

The 31-year-old, a former Warriors captain, spent last season at Mpumalanga Black Aces, playing 21 games.

The veteran defender still has a contract with the Brazilians up to the end of the season but is keen on a move away in January which Sundowns should naturally be open to.

“Method is trying to remain positive in his situation by training hard alone in the gym,” said a source at the club.

“The instruction from the club is that he must train in the gym so he is pushing hard in that regard because he knows that he has to keep himself ready for a move away.

“It is a really frustrating situation because he is training alone but he is going the extra mile.”

Zekumbawira settles at Wits trials

South Africa chance … Francesco Zekumbawira

HARARE City striker Francesco Zekumbawira is settling well at Biest Wits where he started trials on Monday.

He will be there for two weeks and team secretary, Mathew Marara, said preliminary indications are the Wits are keen on the giant former Hwange and Dynamos striker.

“It’s too early to say but we are keeping an eye daily and we hear that he is doing well,” said Marara on the side-lines of the unveiling of their new coach Taurai Mangwiro on Wednesday.

“If he makes the grade, we will not stand in his way. He will definitely go. Remember, last season we had Silas Songani and he did well in Denmark and we released him.

“We are actually happy that we have, at least, a player per season who excels and is spotted by overseas clubs.

“Our aim is to have more players abroad because this helps Zimbabwean football when it comes to the national team.”

Wits, coached by Gavin Hunt, are second on the Absa standings after beating Ajax Cape Town 4-2 on Wednesday.

They are home to former Warriors left-back Onisimor Bhasera, once on the books of Kaizer Chiefs and Plymouth in England.
