Nyoni finding comfort in Belgian second tier

Former Highlanders star, Vusa Nyoni, has found life in the Belgian second division with Mons a little to his liking, having started all of his the team’s five matches so far as they look to make a quick return to the top flight.

Mons were relegated at the end of last season in a development which ended Nyoni’s six-year stint in the Belgian top flight. The 30-year-old joined the club in 2012 from Beerschot.

His first two years at Moms were anything but glamorous however, with the former Zimbabwe international struggling for a foothold in the team, managing a total of just 24 appearances.

Compatriot Honour Gombami meanwhile is settling in just fine in the Belgian third division with struggling KFC Izegem, who already find themselves in a desperate relegation battle with the season just a few matches old.

Izegem are yet to register a single victory in four matches, with Gombami having featured in two of the matches.

But the 31-year-old midfielder at least has a base in Europe. Former Motor Action forward Musa Mguni is a little less fortunate as he remains a free agent nearly a year after being released by Russian side Metalur Donetsk.

The same fate has befallen Tinotenda Chibharo, once considered one of the country’s finest prospects after he impressed with the Manchester City Under-21 side.

Chibharo recently claimed to have quit the English champions in search of regular first team football, an adventure yet to bear fruit as he remains unattached a few weeks into the new European season.
