TAKESURE Chinyama’s future at FC Platinum remains unclear after the club excluded him in the squad for the 2018 CAF Champions league.
Chinyama joined FC Platinum mid-season as coach Norman Mapeza tried to bring experience to a squad that eventually won the league title.
He however did not have many appearances for the champions due to varying reasons.
Club spokesperson Chido Chizondo said they were still finalising their squad and therefore a bit early to conclude the striker no longer had a role in their set-up.
“We need to remember that 2018 will be very tough for FC Platinum. We will be competing in two intensive competitions.
“His exclusion in the CAF squad is not finality. The coach is still at work with regard to completing the 2018 squad,” she said.
Former champions CAPS United found the going tough competing on two fronts in 2017 and later concluded that they needed depth.
“He (Mapeza) needs a balanced squad that will work continentally and locally,” Chizondo added.
