TWO Premier League Soccer League strikers have reportedly reached out to Division One side Bulawayo City “begging” for a chance to join the club to resuscitate their faltering careers, B-Metro Sport has established.
Caps United striker Newman Sianchali, who joined the Harare giants from Highlanders last year, and Chicken Inn veteran Obadiah Tarumbwa are said to have made overtures to high ranking Bulawayo City officials to join the club, possibly in the upcoming window transfer period.
Bulawayo City are enjoying a purple patch in the Zifa Southern Region league and are top favourites to win the sole ticket for a quick return to the Castle Lager Premiership next year.
Both Sianchali and Tarumbwa have not been having the best season at their respective clubs Caps United and Chicken Inn under Joey Antipas and Lloyd Chitembwe respectively.
“We have had serious inquiries from two top players in the Premier Soccer League to be considered in our squad but our response as the executive is that they should try their luck with the coaches just like all the players who are interested in playing for us,” said a Bulawayo City FC official.
The official opined that for a First Division club to court the interest of Premier Soccer League players speaks volumes about the professionalism at the Bulawayo City Council-owned side.
“We pay well and take care of our players despite playing in Division One so it’s not surprising that we have top players interested in joining us,” he said.
Bulawayo City are coached by Try Ncube, a seasoned coach in First Division football.
