Highlanders Football Club has been criticised for demanding money to release young players when they want to go on loan to other Premiership teams.
Bosso 90 has a total of 13 players who have expressed their desire to leave Highlanders after they were overlooked for the senior squad, among them are Dominic Jaricha and Dalubuhle Dlodlo. An unnamed official told the Chronicle:
It’s really not fair to these boys, you discard them and when they look for teams on their own you then throw spanners and say that team must pay for their services.
If the team refuses it means the boys will have nowhere to go, why not let them go as free agents even if they have contracts so that they get the required game time and experience at Premiership level? This is what previous Highlanders executives used to do.
Bulawayo Chiefs are reported to be interested in signing Jaricha and Dlodlo while Brian Jaravaza could be joining Talen Vision.
Meanwhile, Highlander’s spokesperson Ronald Moyo said the club will not allow players to go out on loan without attaching a price tag.
