Zimbabwean defender to cut ties with Simba without kicking a ball 


Zimbabwe national team defender Peter Muduhwa is on his way back to Zimbabwe without kicking a ball after Tanzania giants Simba SC reportedly terminated his loan deal.

The Highlanders FC defender moved to Dar es Salaam in January on a six month loan deal, but the player is yet to feature in a competitive match for the club. The two parties have since terminated the agreement with three months to go.

Since his arrival at Simba, the club has played five Caf Champions League group matches, booking a place in the quarter-finals of the tournament and top group A with 13 points, five clear of reigning African champions Al Ahly, who are second.

The 27-year-old, who was eligible to play in the Caf competition for Simba, confirmed to a Zimbabwe daily The Chronicle that he was heading back home. “For more details, you can talk to the agent, but it’s true, I’m coming back home.

“You know as a player it’s frustrating to do everything in training and fail to make it into the match day squad. I know the coaches have the final decision, but I guess it’s better to look for fresh challenges.

“There are a few things that are being tied up before I return, but I’m grateful for the opportunity that I had while here at Simba,” said Muduhwa.

With football nearing a return in Zimbabwe, Highlanders will be happy to have the star defender back.
