Harare City in limbo?

HARARE - With the 2014 Premier Soccer League transfer window set to close on Wednesday, it has emerged that last year’s runners-up Harare City are yet to register even a single player for the upcoming season.

The Sunshine Boys have been busy in the transfer market bolstering their side after unveiling eight new players, but they are yet to register with the PSL amid revelations that some councillors in the City of Harare want the local authority to stop bankrolling the ambitions club.

City used over $1,2 million last season for its operations, a figure some councillors felt was too high when service delivery in the capital city not up to standard. 

It was however not clear if the delay to register players was linked with the councillors’ move.

Effort to get a comment from club chairman Leslie Gwindi was fruitless as his mobile went unanswered.

However, PSL chief executive Kenny Ndebele said:

“Harare City have not yet register their players. Unlike ZPC Kariba though, they have affiliated but they are yet register.

“We should have released the list of registered players by the start of March but we couldn’t because of these disturbances. The closing date for registration of players is Wednesday and we expect everything to be in place. 

“ZPC Kariba also couldn’t affiliate by Friday as they had requested and we are now waiting to hear from the association and the league tomorrow (today).”

Newly-promoted ZPC might fail to play in the top-flight after their sponsor, power company ZPC, were reportedly ordered by government to stop bankrolling the team.
