Bulawayo City have expressed concern over the absence of their striker Wisdom Mutasa who has reportedly gone absent without official leave (AWOL) at his club.
The club’s spokesperson Thandiwe Moyo said:
As far as we are concerned Wisdom Mutasa is AWOL. We don’t even know that he is in Mozambique and we don’t know the club where he is said to be. We have not had any communication regarding Mutasa from any club. It’s news to us. Mutasa is a Bulawayo City player and is still registered with us.
Speculative reports suggest that Mutasa travelled to Mozambique for trials with top side Costa do Sol. NewsDay Sport was told:
Mutasa is on trials in Mozambique but will be back on Thursday. He missed the game against Tenax and he is not here today. The club in Mozambique wants to sign him in the next transfer window and I gather when he comes back he wants to buy out his contract and join the Mozambican club as a free agent.
He has a contract with Bulawayo City that ends in December.
Mutasa, who once captained the Young Warriors, is not new to controversy at the local authority side after going AWOL twice last year
He has played for a number of clubs locally that include champions FC Platinum, ZPC Kariba, Dynamos, Caps United, Manica Diamonds and Black Rhinos.
Together with fellow Aces Youth Soccer Academy graduate Walter Musona, he had a brief and unsuccessful stint at FK Senica in Slovakia and also played for Singida in Tanzania.
