Christian Ntouba: Desperate or Misguided?

Harare - Desperate or misguided. After a horrible outing at the hands of DeMbare, Cameroon import Christian Ntouba is rumoured to be willing to return to the country if his personal demands are met.

After a bitter divorce in April, many would have thought Ntouba had learnt a few lessons, with his involvement with the fading Harare soccer giants - going for months without a salary.

At the last count, the player was owed $16 000, that the club’s sponsor NetOne later tried to settle, but he made up his mind and packed his bags. 

But with a running contract tying him to Dynamos, flew back to his country after he fell out with the club over their failure to pay his salaries and allowances.

His imminent return posses a lot of questions: van he not locate a suitable team or his talents. However, his manager Gilbert Sengwe yesterday confirmed they have been approached formally, and his client is ready to return.

“There have been negotiations, but it’s too early to give details because there is nothing concrete on the table at the moment. I have also spoken to him (Ntouba) and he says if everything is sorted, he is ready to return,” Sengwe said.

The West African played a big role in Dynamos’ campaign last year when his 12 goals helped the side finish second in the title race when many people had written them off.

Without his goals, DeMbare has been dismal this season, hovering just above the relegation zone after 18 rounds of matches. Club coach Lloyd Mutasa has made it clear that his team’s problems this term are down to a lack of a proper gunman in the mould of Ntouba.

“I wouldn’t want to get much into that because those are administrative issues, but Epoupa has Dynamos at heart and it won’t be a surprise if he comes back home,” Mutasa said.

“Valentine Kadonzvo had a chance, with the keeper to beat, but he fluffed it over. Cleopas (Kapupurika) also had a chance in the second half, so we had two clear cut chances and if we had put them away, we could have come out victorious. 

“I wasn’t happy with the conversion rate, we created a few chances, but we only managed to score one. If they had scored another one, it could have been better,” Mutasa bemoaned.
