Nengomasha is back training with the Soweto giants while his club awaits feedback from Al Ahli over why he was sent back after it seemed everything had been well set for the former Black Aces anchorman’s move.
“Nothing went wrong with his deal. He went for the medical tests as requested by the club.
“It is now up to them to come back to us if they want the player and if they don’t agree to what we proposed then he will stay,”club manager Bobby Motaung told KickOff magazine.
South African clubs, however, have been criticised for overpricing their players in the past week with World Cup stars Siphiwe Tshabalala and striker Katlego Mphela’s proposed moves to Europe hanging in the balance over transfer fees.
But even after the explanation by Chiefs, it is till not clear whether the Nengomasha deal fell through because of breakdown in negotiations or was it that the player might have failed to impress in his three week training camp with Doha. The latter is less likely.
“Nengomasha is back training with the team after joining Al Ahli for their pre-season camp. We are waiting for feedback,” revealed Motaung, speaking to kaizerchiefs.com on Tuesday afternoon.
After suffering that agony which he is yet to recover from, the talented player suffered another set back when he was omitted from the Warriors set up preparing for the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Liberia in Monrovia on September 4.
Coach Norman Mapeza defended his decision to leave out Nengomasha on the grounds that the player was club hunting, but contrary to that knowledge, the player has been preparing for the new season with the former champions.
The player was also involved in a three week pre season training camp in France with the Qatar team before he was sent back to South Africa with no contract offer.
While the club is still waiting for feedback from Al Ahli, the door for that move seems to have been shut and Nengomasha is aware of that,
“I am back and I am sure the fans missed me,” he told Chiefs’ website. “The Management will let me know the way forward with regards to the proposed move to Qatar. My focus now that I am back here is to return to my best and start playing as soon as I can,” he said.
