Tracing back to the roots when a player goes abroad and comes back home has been a common norm on the domestic scene, especially with returnees from the ABSA premiership, but that is not the case with Wisdom Mutasa who is in the country after coming back from Slovakia
Mutasa’s hopes of rejoining FC Platinum appear to have hit a brick wall after the club shut the door on the Young Warriors captain, citing him as out of coach’s plans.
He left the club last season together with Walter Musona after attracting interest from Slovakian side FK Senica, but after failing to command first team places, the players requested to be released by the Slovakians and returned to Zimbabwe.
Musona however immediately expressed desire to re-join FC Platinum, which he eventually did last month, but Mutasa had the club failing to accommodate him after dragging his feet in deciding to re-join the Zvishavane side, a move that has seen the doors being shut for the young star.
FC platinum spokesperson Chido Chizondo confirmed that Mutasa will not be part of them this season.
“Wisdom is not coming back to us. He will not be our player this season. The coach has built his team around other players,” Chizondo said.
Mutasa has however been linked with a move to giants Dynamos where his father Lloyd is an assistant coach to Portuguese gaffer Paulo Jorge Silva.
The Young Warriors captain’s return to FC Platinum has further been complicated after coach Norman Mapeza secured the services of midfielders Nqobizitha Masuku and Hillary Bakacheza from Highlanders FC and Triangle United respectively, covering up possible loopholes that were to be covered by the return of Mutasa.
Meanwhile, Tichaona Mabvura and zivanai Mhanda are reportedly on their way to newly promoted side, Ngezi Platinum. The duo is only left with acquiring a clearance letter from their former paymasters, Dynamos FC.
