Mushekwi’s form has SA side eating humble pie
by SAVIOUS KWINIKA
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SOUTH African Premiership side, Mamelodi Sundowns, is eating humble pie at the form of out-of-favour striker, Nyasha Mushekwi, who is enjoying a rich vein of form in Sweden.
Deemed surplus to requirements at Sundowns, the Zimbabwean international has been an instant hit at Djurgardens IF in the Scandinavian country where he has emerged the frontrunner to win the Golden Boot.
He has netted an impressive nine goals in ten matches to catapult the side to fifth on the 16-team table.
The 27-year-old has provided three assists, meaning he has not been involved in only one of the side’s 13 goals thus far.
In comparison, Sundowns’ leading scorer in the recently-ended campaign, consisting of 30 matches in the league, notched 10 goals.
It is not clear whether the Pretoria-based side will take Mushekwi back in June as that is when his contract with Sundowns expires but they have an option of another year.
Downs Media Manager, Thulani Thuswa, was tightlipped while pressed for comment.
For a fortnight, he sent this news agency from pillar to post.
He did not provide feedback despite assurances he had compiled Sundowns’ responses.
“Yes chief, I have answered your questions and will be sending them immediately. You asked tough questions about Mushekwi,” Thuswa could only manage to say as CAJ News waited in vain.
Despite his proven record as a goal poacher, Mushekwi has largely not been considered for a berth at a club that is said to have a reputation of wrecking players’ careers.
Last season, he was offloaded to Belgian club K.V Oostende but halfway through the season, he suffered an injury which he did not recover from until November last year.
He has a trial at Danish club Hobro IK but Djurgaderns snatched him from under their nose and offered him a six-month loan stint.
