When a player is nearing the age of 30, many would consider playing at home or the furthest a player would go can only be a neighboring country. That may soon change as Oscar has been a long-time friend in business. Machapa was a team-mate of our player Bernard Morrison at Vita FC. Bernard himself was a long-time target of Delhi Dynamos in India. It was the same season that Roberto Carlos dared to form a 3 man striking partnership of Bernard, Memo and Frank Malouda where youth was expected to blend with experience. Unfortunately to the disappointment of the Indian side the player and his club settled for Vita FC before a subsequent move to Orlando Pirates.
Malaysia is popularly known as a holiday resort for most affluent Zimbabweans, but that may soon change as we have got an all daring call for the diminutive midfielder to try his luck in the South East Asian country. We (Joe Mart Sports and Events) have a long history of placing players in this region dating back to the time when the now Limerick city FC based Brazilian striker Rodrigo Tossi was a player at DPMM playing under Steve Kean the ex-Blackburn Rovers Coach. “We are looking at 25 November as the day that we need him to be in the country” said Mr Myo Win the ex – Ayeyawady FC Head Coach in Myanmar now heading to a new team in Malaysia.
Joe Mhondiwa has been tasked to arrange his travel arrangements and if that option doesn’t really suit Oscar, then there is already option for him to join Tafadzwa Rusike that we just moved to Zambia.
