Simba Bhora president, Simba ‘Buju’ Ndoro, has refuted claims that they have signed three top players.
The miners are being commended for ‘signing’ FC Platinum’s Walter Musona, Junior Makunike of Dynamos and Bulawayo Chiefs’ Billy Veremu.
The team’s official Facebook page confirmed this development, leaving social media abuzz.
Ndoro told Zimpapers Sports that there is no truth in that Facebook post.
He said their official account was hacked two months ago and he is now fearing the worst.
“We have not signed anyone at the moment, it’s just unfortunate that there is someone who is spreading these lies using our Facebook page, which was hacked two months ago.
“We are still trying to figure out the best way to get our page back, but the public and our supporters have the right to know that we have not signed anyone.
“We reached out to Musona’s camp and they told us what they are expecting, and we are still negotiating, but they also called us after learning from social media that he has joined our team.
“We are now sounding unprofessional because Junior Makunike is still a Dynamos player and we have no power to unveil him as our new recruit, and this is likely going to ruin our negotiation process,” said Ndoro.
“We haven’t ended our relationship with any player, but in football, that’s normal, it happens every season.
“But we are still considering many things before making that decision, we have given our coach the freedom to assess those who are available on the market before parting ways with some of the players who helped us last season.
“We want our supporters to know the truth.”
Musona has also been linked with a move to Dynamos.
There is also the possibility of a return to South Africa where Kaizer Chiefs are said to be interested.
Makunike was given his Premiership debut by Ndiraya two seasons ago.
Dynamos are believed to have doubled what they had initially offered the highly-rated midfielder.
Tanaka Shandirwa’s season-long loan deal has expired and he is expected to return to his parent club, Yadah.
