Zimbabwean media reports suggest that FC Platinum’s duo in Kevin Moyo and Nigel Makumbe are set to train with South African Premier Soccer giants SuperSport United.
The two players have been invited for a two-week trial with United as they hope to bolster their squad for the 2018/19 season.
According to the club’s spokesperson, Chido Chizondo, he has confirmed the duo will be at Mantsantsantsa in Pretoria from July 3-16 to be assessed by caretaker coach Kaitano Tembo who took over after Eric Tinkler quit the club in March.
“Kevin Moyo, who is one of our key players and Nigel Makumbe, who is on loan to Highlanders, have been invited for trials at SuperSport United. They will be in South Africa from July 3 to July 16,” Chizondo said.
Speculation was rife that Moyo had attracted the interest of a number of clubs in South Africa including Baroka FC following a stellar showing at the 2018 COSAFA Cup tournament earlier this month in Polokwane.
On the other hand, the Tshwane giants are yet to announce a permanent coach as they are linked with Free State Stars’ Luc Eymael, but Tembo also has a chance of landing the job.
