Mushangazhike, who was on loan to Mpumalanga Black Aces, was recommended to Sundowns by former AmaZayoni coach Kenny Ndlazi who helped the Swazi side gain promotion to the elite league next season. ‘Kappa Kappa’ director Alberto Samuels confirms to the Zimbabwean about his clubs interest to lure the former Manning Rangers striker to the club next season.

“He is very interested and our negotiations are now at an advanced stage. We are hoping to finalise everything when he comes here on June 14,” says Samuels. Manzini Sundowns have also roped in former Durban City and Moroka Swallows defender Rodney Charles as assistant coach at the club next season.

‘Gidza’ as Mushangazhike is prominently known started his proffesional football carrer in Zimbabwe with the now defunct side Fire Batteries and Blackpool before joining the also defunct Manning Rangers in South Africa where he became player of the year and top goalscorer. He has also featured for the Warriors of Zimbabwe side in 2006 Africa Cup of Nations where they were knocked in the first round under the guidance of the controversial Charles Mhlauri.
