Zimbabwe based professional Gerard Phiri Jnr left Harare for South Africa on Tuesday to undergo trails at SuperSport United.
Caps United director Twine Phiri confirmed that the Phiri Junior left for the trails after the South Africa’s top (PSL) league side SuperSport were impressed with the video clips.
“They were requested to have a look at it,” said Twine Phiri, who has Malawian roots.
In a related development, Silver Strikers striker Green Harawa also left for Botswana for trails at the country’s top league side Township Rollers.
Silver General Secretary Fred Kalonga confirmed that the team had received offers from four teams in Botswana but Township Rollers had invited the diminutive forward.
“We have received four offers from top flight league clubs in Botswana but it is Township Rollers who have financed his trip and would be the first to assess him,” Kalonga said.
He said they advised the player to be focused because Botswana unlike Malawi runs their league professionally.
“It is good for him a she has been outstanding. Of course it is a big blow for us as he was one of our key players,” he said.
Silver coach Stain Chirwa he had reliable options to step in Harawa’s shoes should he clinch the deal in Botswana.
“His absence will not affect our performance although we would have loved to have him in the squad,” Chirwa said.
Chirwa said he was happy for Harawa as it would help help to seek greener pastures in the Diamond rich nation.
“Football is a short term career and one has to make the best of it. We wish him the best as he seeks green pastures.”
He was confident that the TNM Super League last season Player of the Season would make it because of his hardworking spirit.
Harawa was spotted by Township Rollers after watching him playing for Flames against Tanzania in a friendly match.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
