Palmgren’s Exit To Affect Manqana?
29 November 2012
Roger Palmgren’s departure from AmaZulu could affect Njabulo Manqana’s chances of signing with the Durban-based side.
The former Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates midfielder has spent the past two weeks on trial with the KwaZulu-Natal club, as he aims to get his professional career back on track.
He had impressed Palmgren during his trial and a deal was expected to be imminent, however the Swede has since been shown the door with Craig Rosslee replacing him on the Usuthu bench.
AmaZulu team manager, Philani Mabaso, told the Siya crew that signing the player is no longer the team’s priority, following the departure of the former Thanda Royal Zulu coach.
“I don’t think it’s something that will be happening soon. The coach who was looking at him is no longer with us. I don’t think it’s an issue that is a priority for us at the moment,” said Mabaso.
Manqana is currently a free agent after leaving Pirates over two months ago. He is still training with Usuthu in the hope that the club will give him an opportunity to resurrect his career.
