Highlands Park confirm Mbesuma exit
Chipolopolo striker Collins Mbesuma has left relegated Highlands Park, the club has confirmed.
Kickoff reports that the Zambian hit-man parted company with the club by mutual consent.
“With Collins Mbesuma, we agreed to terminate his contract,” Highlands Park director Brad Kaftel tells KickOff.com.
“There was a mutual agreement and the mutual agreement is that we have parted ways.
“Collins is a legend and he’s a fantastic goal scorer. I can only say that he’s a good guy, great player, a gentleman, and I’ve only got good things to say about Collins. I think also his age has caught up with him and he’s not a youngster anymore.
“I think the NFD requires a lot of speed and I don’t think the NFD is for Collins. Collins can do the job for a top team and is a goal poacher. But we are looking for hard running players now and we don’t have that luxury.”
Regarding Moriri, Kaftel adds: “He has retired and I have had discussions with Larry Brookstone [club director] that he has retired.
“But as far I’m concerned he has retired. We haven’t negotiated with him and my understanding with Surprise is he came to help us for a couple of months and he has retired.
“Having said that, there’s no doubt that he’s a legend and don’t get me wrong, he’s one of South Africa’s best ever players. A special player and special man. He’s really a good guy but from a playing career he has retired.
“But Larry Brookstone handles that and he’s the technical director but he said to me that Surprise has retired.”
