The representative of former Kaizer Chiefs player Lethlogonolo Mirwa has explained why his client is still in South Africa and not at his supposed new club Botev Plotdiv of Bulgaria.
According to Collen Mashawa of BM Sports Consultancy, Mirwa together with the likes of Jeremiah Nkwana, Jacob Hlalele are supposed to undergo an assessment during Botev Vratsa and Plotdiv’s mini pre-season camp in Turkey.
“Uhm…you know they are supposed to be in Turkey for the mini pre-season but then the clubs from Bulgaria, there’s a bit of a delay in terms of their programme,” explains Mirwa’s agent Mashawa.
“My associate assured me he’s working on it…apparently in Bulgaria they could not secure the proper documents to travel to Turkey. That’s why the clubs opted they don’t travel until such matter is resolved.
“From here now we are just waiting for them to come back to us regarding the resolution. Whether we apply straight for the visas to Bulgaria, or we do proceed with Turkey. As it is the boys are still in South Africa at the moment, but the matter is being attended to,” said Mashawa.
The agent says despite the delays, the players will still move to Europe.
“It won’t affect them because everything is the same, it’s just a matter of resolving the matter. Either we go straight to Bulgaria or we travel to Turkey for the mini pre-season because the problem is not from our side, the problem comes from the other side,” concluded Mashawa.
