Struggling Mighty Be Forward Wanderers striker Jimmy Zakazaka has a chance to revive his football career abroad as he is set to undergo two-week trials at undisclosed Botswana club.
Wanderers general secretary, Mike Butao, confirmed in an interview on Sunday that Zakazaka would undergo trials starting this week, but did not give more details on the issue.
“I can confirm that Jimmy is going to Botswana this week for trials. The club wrote us expressing interest to assess Zakazaka for two weeks, so we have given him green light to undergo trials,” said Butao.
The former Big Bullets forward was expected to leave for Botswana yesterday.
Butao was confident that Zakazaka would be successful in Botswana despite struggling at Nomads this season.
“He is still a good player and he will pass the test. As Wanderers, we wish him well during trials,” added Butao.
Zakazaka spent over ten years playing for South African clubs such as Free State Stars and Bay United before returning to Bullets.
Last year, Zakazaka was a key striker for Bullets as the club won a double of TNM Super League and Carlsberg Cup.
At Wanderers, Zakazaka has struggled to hit top form this season.
Wanderers are also on the verge of losing top striker Mohammad Sulumba, who has been linked with a move to newly promoted South African club Jomo Cosmos.
Cameroonian forward Lionel Asu might also leave the club due to contractual disputes.
But Nomads have already confirmed the signing of Ishmael Thindwa on a six-month loan deal from Caps United.
