Chi­nani at­tracts for­eign in­ter­est

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - SPORT -

gi­ants ahead of the 2019 term.

Only a hand­ful of play­ers, in­clud­ing im­pres­sive goalie Chi­nani, de­fender Pakhamani Dube and cen­tral mid­fielder Gift Saun­yama, are be­lieved to be in Chigowe’s plans.

How­ever, Chigowe might lose the 22-year-old Chi­nani, whose stock has risen mas­sively since he wres­tled the DeMbare No.1 jer­sey from Ton­derai Mateyaunga last June.

Chi­nani, who was a so­cial player just over a year ago, be­fore try­ing his luck at Yadah Stars, kept seven clean sheets in the 17 games he fea­tured in as rel­e­ga­tion threat­ened Dy­namos.

Those per­for­mances have at­tracted in­ter­est from some clubs in South Africa and Tan­za­nia.

Ac­cord­ing to a source at DeMbare, South African gi­ants Or­lando Pi­rates are one of the ABSA Premier­ship clubs that have shown a keen in­ter­est, with a plan to play Chi­nani in the Mul­ti­choice Diski Chal­lenge — South African PSL’s re­serve league.

There’s stiff com­pe­ti­tion for the No. 1 jer­sey at the Buc­ca­neers’ who have the ex­pe­ri­enced duo of Bril­liant Khuzwayo and Wayne Sandi­lands on their books.

Azam of Tan­za­nia, who are home to Zim­bab­wean in­ter­na­tional Tafadzwa Kutinyu, are also amongst the teams show­ing in­ter­est in the Chegutu bred goal­keeper.

Chi­nani’s man­ager Brighton Ushendibaba did not give much away when he was con­tacted for a com­ment.

“We have re­ceived a num­ber of en­quiries from South Africa, Tan­za­nia and some from as far as Saudi Ara­bia and Dubai but we are not talk­ing about that as yet be­cause noth­ing concrete has ma­te­ri­al­ized.
