WANDERERS NEED E0.5M TO SIGN NEW PLAYERS

By Melusi Mlotsa | 2020-10-18

SOCCER- HUB giants Manzini Wanderers are reportedly suffering from a serious headache, as they need E500 000 to sign 12 new players ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Information gathered from a source close to the team is that the Weslians are expected to have a massive clear-out in order to give way for the 12 new players.

Some of the new players earmarked to join the Weslians are former Mbabane Highlanders captain Jimoh Moses, ex-Green Mamba’s Nigerian-born striker Solomon Oladele, Milling Hotspurs central defender Linda Mbuli, Hawane Shooting Stars attacking midfielder Philani Mkhontfo and Moneni Pirates defender Thabo Vilakati to mention but only a few.

The money will cover signing-on fees, as most of the mentioned players are believed to be out of contracts.

“The team wants to beef up its squad by signing 12 new players. As a result, we are in a half a million headache, because as you know we are still without a director.

“However, we are keeping our fingers crossed that the new boss will take over soon as our elders have promised,” said the source.

Manzini Wanderers communications officer Sandile ‘Ntofo’ Dlamini said they won’t divulge information in relation to figures.

“Once we are done with whatever we are doing, we will call a press conference to inform the public. Having said that, we won't divulge figures since it’s private,” he said. Dlamini further urged the supporters to remain patient.

Meanwhile, the maroon and white outfit are still without a director for close to a year now.

This was after the unceremonious departure of South Africa based businessman Mehluli Nhlengetfwa which has left the Manzini based outfit struggling financially.
