Canadian leaves Bosso


CANADA’S first Mobile Sports Academy goalkeeper Jean-Felix Lemieux left the country yesterday following his attachment to former league champions Highlanders for almost two months.


Lemieux joined Bosso together with Canadian counterparts Philippe Barriault and later Beychevel Bamana and were meant to be attached to the club for six months.

However, Lemieux is said to be returning to Canada to further his studies.

Lemieux said he had enjoyed his stint with the Bulawayo giants and would return to play for Bosso if the opportunity arose.
“It was nice training with the club. The physical trainer (Majaha Ndlovu) was amazing. All the players welcomed us well and we trained well as a team. I would definitely return if given the chance because I really felt welcome here,” the French speaking Canadian said.

Lemieux said at moment he had not made any plans in terms of his career.

“I am not sure what I will do next. I still have to talk to our managers and they will advise on the way forward. I am, however, pleased to have worked with the head coach (Kelvin Kaindu) I have trained with a number of clubs in Switzerland, France and in Britain but I have never met a coach like him. They are nowhere near this one,” he said.

His teammates at FMSA, Barriault and Bamana who had gone to the airport to see him off said they would be round for a while.

“If all goes well I will be here until July. The training has been going well. I played in yesterday’s (Sunday) against the juniors and they surprised me. They are too good for their age. They played very well,” Barriault said.

Bamana said: “We are gaining a lot from the coach and the physical training is really good for our fitness. I could also be here up to July. I played in the first match yesterday (Sunday) and we won 6-0,” he said.

Bamana joined Lemieux and Barriault late as he was on trials at Ipswich.
