Vheremu unsure of Platinum future

HARARE - FC Platinum captain Daniel Vheremu has added to the uncertainty surrounding a number of the club’s senior players by admitting he is not sure whether he will stay in Zvishavane next season.

The former Zimbabwe defender joined Platinum in 2011 when the club was promoted into the Castle Premiership, losing the league title to Dynamos on goal difference.

Vheremu’s contract with Platinum expired at the end of the 2013 season, and the defender says he is yet to be offered a new deal by the platinum miners.

“Should I stay or go, I don’t know what to do. God help me to decide,” Vheremu said yesterday.

“My first preference is to sign a new contract with FC Platinum and hopefully we can work something out, but if this fail, I will look to sign for another big club.

“It will be a step backwards if I leave Platinum and join a small team. I want a team which is bigger than my current club.”

The former Gunners man, however, reserved special praise for the club, saying he has thoroughly enjoyed his three seasons with them.

“My three year stay at FC Platinum was fantastic. This team has been really good to me and I think I have been really good to them,” added Vheremu.

Vheremu has been one the most consistent players at Platinum over the years, managing to stay on when other players were being offloaded by the ambitious club.
