STRIKER Njabulo “Tshiki” Ncube says he still has a contract with Highlanders that runs up to June, but is laying low since he suffered an ankle injury when the Bulawayo giants lost 1-4 to Dynamos in the TM Pick n Pay Challenge Cup tie in Harare last September.
Tshiki was replaced by Simba Sithole four minutes into the second half in that match.
In an interview yesterday, the burly striker said he respects his contract with the Bulawayo giants and is resting at the moment awaiting a team to approach him as he feels he still has more years to play.
“I have a contract with Highlanders that ends in June. But I was injured when we played Dynamos in the TM Cup and at the moment I am just resting and waiting for my contract to expire. No team has approached me, but I feel I can still play. I know there has been talk that I was offloaded at Highlanders, but I was never given any letter to that effect. I am just nursing my injury and resting,” Tshiki said.
Ncube dumped Highlanders for FC Platinum at the beginning of last season, but after a frustrating stay at the Zvishavane-based club where he impressed in pre-season, he returned to Bosso in mid-season, where he was welcomed.
He was handed a two-week suspension following incidents of indiscipline the Highlanders camp prior to the TM Pick n Pay Challenge Cup with other players Charles Sibanda and Joel “Josta” Ngodzo served with written warnings.
Sibanda has since joined How Mine while Ngodzo was given a chance to redeem himself by head coach Bongani Mafu, but appears to have fallen out of favour, again, with the Bosso technical team.
