Former Dynamos winger Valentine Kadonzvo said he left the club “unceremoniously” last season because he wanted to apply for a scholarship in the United States but failed to beat the deadline.
Kadonzvo told the Daily News that the reason he opted to sign for Chicken Inn was that the club offered to take him to the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) to fulfil his academic dream. He said:
I wanted to go for a scholarship in the United States but unfortunately, I failed to beat the deadline of the registration so in the end, I could not make it.
It’s not like I misrepresented to Dynamos. Realising that my scholarship for the United States had hit a brick wall, I then came to Chicken Inn, who offered me a better deal than I had at Dynamos.
As someone who is still keen to extend my education, Chicken Inn offered to take me to the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) as part of the deal.
Kadonzvo, who is yet to enrol at NUST, left Dynamos fuming following his “defection” to the Gamecocks.
Dembare felt that the United States scholarship story was just a smokescreen to hide his true intentions and at one point, the Glamour Boys asked the Premier Soccer League to intervene as they demanded a US$8 000 transfer fee for the winger.
