No Gombami, Nyoni for Sundowns


SOUTH African Absa Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Mamelodi Sundowns manager Peter Ndlovu has dismissed media reports linking Belgium-based pair Honour Gombami and Vusa Nyoni to his club.


Ndlovu, who is in the country on vacation, said the two former Warriors and Highlanders men are great players, but the Brazilians have never approached them.


“I am not sure where those reports are coming from. The two are great players and any club would want to have them, but there has never been any approach from Sundowns. There is nothing like that. We at Sundowns, are open people and I can refer you to our communications department,” he said.

“The two have not been approached by Sundowns.”

Media reports last month suggested Gombami and Nyoni could be headed for South Africa this month, citing the legendary former Warriors, Highlanders and England side Coventry City striker as being behind the two’s move to Mamelodi Sundowns.


Gombami is at Antwerp in Belgium, but has been dogged by injury. He has played for Cercle Brugge in Belgium before moving to Antwerp.

Nyoni has been enjoying game time at second tier Belgian League side Mons and played for Cercle Brugge together with Gombani before moving to Beerschot and then to Mons.

Ndlovu dismissed reports that tear-way also left linkman Kudakwashe Mahachi, who joined Sundowns in July last year, is on his way back to Highlanders on loan.

Former Warriors skipper Esrom Nyandoro, who plays for Sundowns is set to hang his boots at the end of the 2014 to 2015 Absa PSL season, wrapping up a 15-year career, mostly spent at the Brazilians.

Nyandoro, like Ndlovu is expected to be roped in into the club’s technical structures.

Another former Warriors’ player, Method Mwanjali is set to leave Sundowns this month and could be returning to Zimbabwe to finish his career at former club Caps United, if he is cleared of match-fixing charges.

Mwanjali returned to Sundowns from a loan spell at Mpumalanga Black Aces, but his stay in South Africa is hanging in the balance.

But with Mbulelo Mabizela having been axed by Aces, Mwanjali could find himself back in Mpumalanga to fill the gap.
