Twice the joy for former Warriors captain Mwanjali

FORMER Zimbabwe international defender Method Mwanjali begins the month as a free agent following the expiry of his contract at Mamelodi Sundowns.

At the same time he should be enjoying the relief of having his life ban from Zimbabwean football lifted by ZIFA.

Mwanjali was handed a lifetime ban in October 2012 by the Zimbabwe Football Association for his alleged involvement in the Asiagate match-fixing scandal but following a gruelling three-year battle he has now been cleared.

The sanctions were only restricted to football activities governed by ZIFA which is why Mwanjali was still able to continue with his career in South Africa as the ban was never endorsed by FIFA.

The Footballers Union of Zimbabwe has been handed Mwanjali’s letter confirming that the ban has been lifted.

The Asiagate scandal – which happened between 2007 and 2009 – involved players that went on tours to Asia where they were allegedly paid to ‘throw’ matches, and at the time when 15 officials and players were banned it made huge news across the world.

According to Kick Off, Mwanjali’s contract expired on June 30 and he will walk away from the pain of sitting on the side-lines for a year at Sundowns.

The veteran defender spent the past season stuck at Sundowns after the club decided not to register him.

However, he has been able to keep fit as he has been training with his former club Hwange for the past three months.

He has since returned to South Africa and is looking to seal a move to another club in the new season.
