Sulumba, Maunde to undergo trials in Vietnam


The two veteran players, Mighty Mukuru Wanderers’ prolific striker, Muhammad Sulumba and Civil Service United’s experienced defender-cum-midfielder, Bashir Maunde are expected to fly to Vietnam for a week of trials with Vietnamese top flight Club Hoang Anh Gia Lai.

The two are expected to leave for Vietnam after wrapping up the first round of TNM Super League subject to Visa protocols.

Bashir Maunde who played for Bullets for years substantiated the development saying he has received invitation for the trails.

He said, “I feel humbled. This is an opportunity for me to play professional football abroad and I will try my best to impress the Club.”.

Bashir regained his form since completing a move from Nyasa Big Bullets two seasons ago and he has been the most important player in Civil’s team.

However, the 29-year-old defender has six months left on his current deal with Civil which puts Civil at risk of losing another player for free after Lawrence Chaziya who joined Jordan’s side Al Hussein Irbid FC.

Civil Service United’s general secretary said the club will be ready to let him if the Club is satisfied with his services.

He told the daily times, ” He is a good player and will go with our blessings. We believe he will advance in his football career in Vietnam.”

Meanwhile, in a letter from Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, the Mukuru-sponsored team has asked for clarification before letting the player go for prosecution.

Reads the letter, “Sulumba has a contract with Wanderers until 13 February 2024, as such, we would to know the duration of the trials because we need to replace the player.”

Muhammad Sulumba who rejoined Nomads after spells at Nyasa Big Bullets, Polokwane City and Civil Service United is in red hot in the super league having scored 7 goals and he is just 2 goals away from the leading goal-scorer, Babatunde Adepoju.

It is reported that Sulumba will be reaping $10,000 which is about k11m at Hoang who are currently second in their league this season should he completes the move while Maunde will be earning $5000 which is about K5.5m after sealing the deal.
