Clubs after Augustine Mbara

HARARE - A number of local clubs are inquiring about the availability of former Dynamos captain Augustine Mbara during this off season transfer window.

The Daily News understands that the centre back, who can also play at left back, might retrace his footsteps to his former club Dynamos.

There has also been interest from ZPC Kariba, who are now under new coach Godfrey Tamirepi after the departure of Sunday Chidzambwa at the end of last season.

The other clubs that have shown an interest in the defender are Black Rhinos and CAPS United.

The former Glamour Boys skipper and defender has been unattached ever since terminating his contract with former Absa Premiership side Highlands Park last May.

Mbara had moved to the Johannesburg-based side in mid 2015 after his contract with the Glamour Boys had expired.

However, his stay at Highlands Park was not fruitful as the club recruited a new coach in Gordon Igesund as they tried to survive relegation.

Mbara did not fit into Igesund’s plans and returned home after the club agreed to terminate his contract by mutual consent.

After a brief stay back in Zimbabwe, Mbara tried his luck in Malaysia where he was training with PKNS.

“After leaving Highlands Park, I returned home for a few months and I was supposed to go to Tanzania at Simba but the move fell through,” Mbara told the Daily News.

“Then in mid October last year, travelled to Malaysia where I was training with PKNS and played in some friendly matches.

“At the moment I’m back home because I had to come back for the holidays. I had also not signed a contract with them because their foreign quota slots are already filled at the moment.

“If they are to sign me, it would be at the end of the current season when they are allowed to register new foreign players ahead of the 2018/19 season.”

Mbara added: “At the moment there a number of local teams that are interested in my services and I’m weighing the offers. Whether I should wait for my move to Malaysia to finally sail through or I should sign for a local team.”
