Bloemfontein Celtic supporters will be delighted to know that defender Ronald Pfumbidzai is finally back in the country after three months of trying.
The Zimbabwean international has been stuck in his native country since July and was finding it difficult to return to South Africa due to lockdown travel restrictions.
The 25-year-old missed his team’s last six remaining league matches as well as the Nedbank Cup final against Mamelodi Sundowns after arriving in Bloemfontein on Sunday.
“Ronald joined the team on Monday, he was back in Bloemfontein after taking a flight from Zimbabwe, OR Tambo to Bram Fischer (International Airport),” Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco confirmed to FARPost.
“Obviously the application through the department (Home Affairs) was done and actually confirmation to fly back into the country.
“Remember he was injured most of the time so that’s the first reason why the club allowed him to go home. The programmes were sent and he requested to rehabilitate at home so basically he was kind of out for the bubble as well.” Said Konco.
Pfumbidzai has only played 12 matches for Siwelele this season and missed most games due to an injury set back.
