Mpumalanga Black Aces coach, Clive Barker believes veteran Zimbabwean midfielder, Tinashe Nengomasha, is still one of the best players in the Absa Premiership.

“Nengomasha is a great player whom any coach would appreciate having in his team,” said Barker, who has reunited with the gifted former national team star in his side.

The two worked together for a season at Bidvest Wits University, before the coach left for Mpumalanga early last season.

Conincidentally, fortunes changed for Nengomasha with the arrival of Gavin Hunt at Wits, as the two reportedly had a spat that resulted in the Zimbabwean being adjudged to be surplus to requirements at Wits at the end of last season.

“I am a big fan of Nengomasha. He loves the game, he is passionate and everyday he goes up there, he gives out his best. So I will take him into this club,” said Barker.

The veteran midfield kingpin was released by Wits after he made only six league starts for The Students last season. He is currently part of the Aces squad in the pre-season camp in Nelspruit.

“I have been working hard to get a better deal with Aces and I am happy with my performances so far,” Nengomasha said.

“I am happy that the coach is also impressed with my performances. I just hope everything goes well for me because I want to play and help the club win accolades. The club is run in a very professional manner and I would appreciate being part of their set-up. The support we are getting from the technical stuff is excellent what is left is for me to deliver on the pitch.”
