AFTER his move to South Africa’s Motsepe Foundation Championship side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) fell through, ex-Warriors goalkeeper Donovan Bernard believes it will be wise for him to be patient and wait for a perfect opportunity to make a meaningful transfer to foreign lands.

TTM is based in the town of Thohoyandou in the Limpopo province.

The team plays its home matches at the Thohoyandou Stadium.

The club purchased the National First Division status of Milano United FC in July 2017after they had previously played in the ABC Motsepe League.

Under owner Lawrence Mulaudzi, the outfit continued to spend its way to the top when in 2020 it purchased the Premier League status of Bidvest Wits.

Over two weeks ago, we reported that Bernard (27) and TTM had agreed on a two-year contract and the goalminder had to travel to Limpopo after the South African side had agreed on a transfer fee with Castle Lager Premier Soccer League side Chicken Inn.

However, the player and TTM reportedly disagreed on personal terms when it was time to sign a contract, hence his retracing back to Gamecocks.

The Limpopo side reportedly changed the terms of the contract at the eleventh hour.

“Unfortunately, all did not work according to plan. It’s everyone’s wish to move and play in foreign lands but I must say, there will be a need for one to be patient.

At times, you need not to hurry things.

God’s time is the best and I believe the rightful deal that I deserve will come my way,” said Donovan who was between the sticks when Chicken Inn played a 0-0 draw against ZPC Kariba last Saturday.

Bernard is expected to play an important role as the Gamecocks look to wrestle the league title from FC Platinum.

Joey Antipas will be happy to welcome back his first-choice goalkeeper as they approach the business end of the season.

With nine games before the curtain comes down on the Zimbabwe League, Antipas’ Gamecocks trail Norman Mapeza’s FC Platinum by eight points.

At Chicken Inn, Bernard had equally talented replacements in Pride Zendera and Sam Mafukidze.

Gamecocks’ goalkeepers manager Energy Murambadoro recently heaped praise on their goalies saying: “The attitude from our goalkeepers and the entire team has been impressive.

It’s good team work and it was more pleasing to see Bernard getting some individual man of the match accolades.

It’s not easy and we will not put him under pressure. I must say we have had three best goalkeepers in the league.”
