    Shabani FC captain Mupasiri leaving for greener pastures


    ZVISHAVANE – After a stellar performance throughout the 2017 season which ensured that the former asbestos miners remain in the top flight league Shabani FC captain Farai Mupasiri is set to leave the club for greener pastures.
    Although the 25 year-old striker did not reveal where he was headed to saying it was a private matter. However the rumour mill is abuzz with information that he is joining Yadah FC in Harare.
     "I cannot say anything about that because that is too personal. What is important now is for us to celebrate our survival," he said.
     Farai Mupasiri was spotted talking to unidentified Yadah FC officials for a long time where verbal terms were agreed to and the striker is set to leave for Harare to seal the deal which is likely to leave the Zvishavane community in tears. Ironically Farai Mupasiri AKA FM7 scored one of the goals against Yadah FC last week on Saturday to seal the Chinda Boys' survival in the top flight league.
     "Although I pointed out at the beginning of the season that Shabani is my home I cannot say that anymore as my future is quite uncertain at the club. Anything can come up anytime," said the free scoring hitman without elaborating.
    Efforts to get a comment form Yadah FC were fruitless as their phones were not being answered until the time of going to Press.
     "Shabanie Mine is a big institution that most players wish to play for. Even the fan base is a clear testimony of the size of the Club hence I will not  turn down another opportunity to play for them," added FM7.
    It is understood that FM7's contract ends on December 31 this year and when the Shabani FC gaffer Takesure Chiragwi was contacted for a comment on the impending departure of his trusted captain he said the decision was up to the player to make and he cannot stand in his way.
    Meanwhile, Chiragwi was in cloud nine after surviving the dreaded chop from the Premiership on the last day of action lifting pressure off his shoulders at least for now.
     "We are happy as we have survived relegation. I don't have many words to say but to congratulate the boys for a job well done. We exactly did what we were supposed to do, win the match and survive relegation. We deserve to play in the Premier League because we went through very difficult circumstances throughout the season," said Chiragwi.
     Since Shabanie's first promotion into the Premier League in 2001 the club has never been relegated the same year they gained promotion.
