SOCCER – GREEN Mamba are reportedly demanding E30 000 from capital city giants Mbabane Highlanders for the signature of veteran midfielder Phumlani Ngwenya.

Information gathered is to the effect that the pint-sized midfielder was on loan to the capital city giants and the deal between the two parties came to an end at the end of July.

Ngwenya has been conspicuously missing from the team in the 2019/20 season despite the fact that he played a pivotal role last season.

It has also been ascertained that the player has begun training with the capital city giants while his former team Green Mamba was still negotiations with the black and white ensemble.

“Green Mamba want E30 000 for them to release the player but if Highlanders want him on loan, they will have to pay E15 000,” said a source close to the matter.

Green Mamba Chief Executive Officer Thami Phakathi declined to comment about the matter, referring all queries to Mbabane Highlanders.

Mbabane Highlanders Communication Officer Bhekisisa Dlamini said negotiations between the two teams are in progress

“Registration is still open and negotiations between the two teams are in progress. For that reason, I’m not in a position to respond on your question because that can have a negative impact on our good relations with Green Mamba,” he said.

Meanwhile, another player whose contract has expired with the capital city giants is central defender, Simphiwe ‘Cheese’ Manana. The former Mbabane city player had  not participated in the team’s activities since the season has started.
