Former national team and Ajax Cape Town forward Simba Sithole is now fit and ready for another elite showdown.
The 32 year Bulawayo based gun man last played professional football for ZPC Munyati Fc in 2019 under the watchful eyes of Rutherford Matondo where he helped the power utility tigers to a third place finish behind Whawha Fc and Sheashum Fc.
Sithole said he has been shaping fitness and gaining momentum during football hold in the lockdown era.
“Well for now l have been training with Arenel Fc here in Bulawayo and they really helped a lot in terms of shaping and having that relationship with the ball.
“I have also been working with professional homeboys Xolisani ‘Scara’ Moyo, Moses Majika and Winston Mango. Before covid 19 most players were busy hustling for survival but l managed to train on a personal level to gain fitness.”
Sithole, who has a two year drought believe he will ply his trade soon.
“I am now ready for action after two year absent and with football anything can happen.
It’s not about age but it’s all about performance.”
The former Tafic Fc (Botswana) frontman confirmed that there are teams already eyeing for his services both in the local football vicinity and regional proximity though he did not dispatch their names.
Post on Sunday got in touch with Highlanders main man Winston Mango, friend to Simba Sithole. He believes that a lot of defining experience with a big life span ahead is yet to be harnessed by the former Shooting Stars striker.
“Simba is an experinced player who has great striking instincts. He is very good in the air. Given a chance to make another run into professional football he cannot disappoint because he has seen it all.”
Sithole boasts of a beefed up professional career having played for How mine (2013), Ajax Cape Town (2014/2015), Highlanders (2016), Tafic (2018), Sharps Shooting Stars (2018), Yadah (2019) and ZPC Munyati (2019).
