Makaab speaks on Mushekwi’s future
MIKE Makaab of Prosport International has clarified Nyasha Mushekwi’s future and taken issue with an agent who has been speaking on behalf of the player.
The 29-year-old Mushekwi, whose club season with Chinese club Dalien Yifang has recently ended, has been training with Bidvest Wits in a bid to keep fit ahead of Zimbabwe’s African Nations Cup campaign in January.
Football agent Ralph Nkomo indicated as much to this website earlier yesterday.
However, Makaab says Nkomo should not be talking about Mushekwi as the striker is represented by Prosport.
“As Nyasha Mushekwi’s official representative, I am surprised that a man of Ralph Nkomo’s stature, and a person for whom I have great respect, would make comments about a footballer he does not represent and go on to discuss the future plans of Nyasha,” Makaab told KickOff.com.
“Nyasha has a good relationship with Bidvest Wits and had a run-out at the ground to keep himself in good shape for the upcoming Afcon. The Chinese season ended a few weeks ago and only resumes next year. He is very happy at Dalien and was extremely successful in his first season.
“He ended up as his team’s leading marksman, scoring 20 goals in 30 games, only two behind the league’s leading scorer.
“We are looking to improve his contract at the club and hope to start negotiations with them when he returns for the new season.
“I suggest that Mr Nkomo reserves his comments about footballers he represents.” — Kickoff
