Mhone, who has been beckon of hope for the team earning himself a transfer to Jomo Cosmos relegated from South Africa top league returned home from Zimbabwe where the team lost 2-1 in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

He  just played 15 minutes and was replaced by Bullets burly striker Muhammad Sulumba.

However,  the former Blue Eagles winger did not approve of his substitution when he did not embrace a traditional handshake as a fair play.

He told the local media on his return that he was equally surprised because the coach Ernest Mtawali did not explain his early substitution or his failure to make the Cosafa Tournament trip to South Africa.

This is a double blow for the player who attracted scouts for possible deals overseas.

A soccer analyst blamed Mtawali’s hard line stance over players selection including the dropping of Robert Ng’ambi.

“What he is doing is wrong because he keeps on changing his team. Micium has been loyal and toughened by South Africa PSL as compared to budding Isaac Kaliati who has replaced him,” he said.

The Cosafa will run from 14 June to 28 in Namibia.

IT LOOKS LIKE ENERST HAS TOO MANY PERSONNAL ISSUES AGAINST FOREIGN PLAYERS AND I THINK HE STILL DOESN’T HAVE ANY PLAYER SELECTING SKILLS AS EVIDENCED BY THE WAY HE CHANGES HIS SQUAD, FOR INSTANCE YOU WILL NOTE THAT SINCE THE BIGGINING OF THE AFCON CAMPAIGN THERE HAS NOT BEEN A GOALKEEPER WHO HAS PLAYED IN TWO OR THREE GAMES.
