Be Forward Wanderers’ attacking midfielder Jabulani Linje and striker Precious Msosa have been earmarked for trials at an unnamed club in Japan, home of the Nomads’ sponsors, Be Forward Limited.
Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, on Saturday confirmed the trip but said details about the identity of the Japanese team would be released later.
“These two young talented boys will leave the country on November 14 2017. The trials have been facilitated by our sponsors, Be Forward, in a continuous bid to give our players a chance to realise their dreams.
“We are sure [that] Jabulani and Precious will grab this chance with both hands and make themselves, the club and the country proud. Most of all, their success will be the ideal way to thank our sponsors for their endless efforts in making Be Forward Wanderers’ players realise their dreams in football.”
Butao said more Wanderers’ players stand a chance of attending such trials.
While the basis for picking the duo for the trials is unclear, but what is certain is that they are not regulars in the squad that is fighting for the league championship.
In January, striker Peter Wadabwa and midfielder Joseph Kamwendo were unsuccessful during trials with another Japanese side, Yokohama FC.
However, the players claimed that they did not undergo the trials but just trained with amateur sides because the season, at that time, was on break.
