Time to move on: Amidu

Zimbabwe national team striker Brian Abbas Amidu says he has given up on moving a rung up the South African football ladder.

Amidu, who had a great game in the Absa Premiership last season, said he had resigned himself to a season in the National First Division, after he was relegated with Black Leopards at the end of last season.

The otherwise rising Warriors star had wanted to force a move out of the unfashionable league, but a combination of factors kept him there. Lack of interest from the topflight clubs and a denied move to Europe by Leopards have seen the striker give up on his search for the bigger stage.

“I have accepted that there are ups and downs in this game and this is one of those times when one has to accept that things have not gone as planned,” said the former Kaizer Chiefs player.

“My job is to play football and I will concentrate on that for now and let everything else follow. I will focus on doing my best here and hope that a better door opens for me. If a move does not come earlier, then I will have to help Leopards get promotion to the PSL.”

Amidu said the team has brought in 22 youthful players who are all eager to do well and give the club its much-needed promotion within a season.

“Our priority right now is to make sure that we got to Christmas occupying a better league position and then finish the job off in the coming year. We have players who can do that for us and it is very possible. I’m also in top form and still playing my best football.”
