Soccer – Hub giants Manzini Wanderers have suffered a huge blow ahead of the new season after they lost the services of Ghanaian born forward Johnson Mensah.

Information gathered from a source close to the matter revealed that the speedy forward has already informed the maroon and white new management that he will be not be part of the club in the 2020/21 season.   It has been learnt that the player is now waiting to sort out some issues with the club before he vacates the club house situated at Ngwane Park. Manzini Wanderers Communications Officer Mlungisi Ndzinisa said there is nothing to say for now regarding this matter.

“Currently, we don’t have an official statement in relation to players who are leaving.  However, I can confirm that there are some players leaving the club. Once the coaches are finished compiling the squad we will release it to the media,” he said.

Sought for comment, the player was first reluctant but later confirmed that he longer belongs to Wanderers. “Yes, I can confirm that I’m now a free agent after parting ways with Wanderers.

I can’t mention in the media what forced me out in respect of the team,” he said. The former Matsapha United player refused to state his next destination.

Meanwhile, the hub giants have reportedly to have concluded talks with DR Congo striker Fabrice Mopina. 

Other players who are heavily linked with the team are Mbabane Swallows trio Richard McCreesh, Mncedisi ‘Mphotho’ Dlamini and Paito Dube.

Former Mbabane Highlanders captain Jimoh Moses is also on his way to join the club together with lanky South Africa central defender Thami Zulu.

 Players who have been released are Sicelo ‘Junior’ Simelane, Jose Machado and Menzi Gamedze, amongst others.
