MARK Harrison was missing on the bench as Harare City settled for a 1-1 draw against TelOne in a Premiership match at Luveve yesterday.
This has raised doubts over his future with the Sunshine Boys.
Harrison was not part of Harare City’s preparations ahead of yesterday’s encounter and was spotted by H-Metro at OR Tambo international airport in South Africa last week Thursday.
There has been unconfirmed reports that he travelled for negotiations with an unnamed Absa Premiership side for a possible move while the club’s position was that he had accompanied his wife to Joburg overnight.
However, his assistant Mark Mathe was in the dugout yesterday as Harare City striker Ishmael Wadi continued with his rich vein of form getting his fourth goal in the last three matches.
Emmanuel Mandiranga was on target for TelOne to ensure a share of spoils.
Harare City chief executive Tafadzwa Bhasera played down Harrison’s absence:
“The club gave the Briton some time off to attend to some pressing family commitments.”
“He went to see his father in law who is not well in England. He took some days off to go and attend as the situation is critical. We expect him back this week,” said Bhasera.
