A Bulawayo lad — Enrique Ricardo Ndlovu — has signed a six-month contract with Libyan side Rafeeq FC and is awaiting a visa to travel to the North African country, B-Metro Sport has learnt.
Ndlovu signed a six months contract with an option to extend by two years if he impresses at Rafeeq FC.
The Young Warriors player signed a contract with Harare City in March last year after leaving Slovakian club AS Trencin, a top flight side that he joined as an 18-year-old back in 2017.
The player’s agent, Abdul Mohamed, confirmed in a WhatsApp interview with B-Metro Sport that Rafeeq FC first showed interest in the player when he presented video clips of Ndlovu during his stay at AS Trencin.
“He signed a six months contract and the club have an option to extend it for two more years if he does well in the first season at Rafeeq FC. He is a young player who can still learn a lot about Libyan football and I hope he will work hard and do well at his new club,” said Mohamed.
Ndlovu said he was excited at the prospect of playing in Libya and was awaiting his visa, which should be issued by next week.
“I have played in Slovakia before so the idea of playing in a foreign country doesn’t really scare me. I look forward to playing in Libya and should be leaving next week when I get my visa,” said Ndlovu.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Ndlovu did not have a chance to play for Harare City under coach Lloyd Chitembwe.
