‘The General’ our backbone: Ferreira

Bidvest Wits CEO Jose Ferreira has praised veteran Zimbabwean midfielder, Tinashe Nengomasha, whom he described as the Clever Boys’ “backbone”.

“Nengomasha is an engine of our club and is not for sale,” Ferreira said recently, of the midfielder who was at some time rumoured to be having bad blood with coach, Gavin Hunt, who kept him on the bench.

“He is very much a part of Bidvest Wits. We want to achieve a lot with him. He has been around in the PSL and with his experience, our team is heading the right direction. We don’t want to lose a player of his calibre.”

Nengomasha and fellow Zimbabwean Thomas Sweswe had been linked with moves away from the club, with the likes of AmaZulu and Bloemfontein Celtic credited with interest. Sweswe recently failed a medical examination at Mpumalanga Black Aces and could be on his way out of Wits, owing to an injury that has kept him on the side lines for some time.

Nengomasha started 27 Absa Premiership games for the Clever Boys last season for joint most league starts at the club with captain, Sibusiso Vilakazi. He has however, played a few games after the arrival of Hunt from Pretoria-based SuperSport United.
