Tanzania’s Young Africans are looking for their Zimbabwean player in Donald Ngoma who has reportedly gone AWOL.
The Warriors striker is in trouble with his Tanzanian club as he left the side without consent and media reports suggest he is facing disciplinary action after he didn’t report for duty.
Ngoma is out of action after picking up an injury and has missed five matches since the Premier League season kicked off.
The News Day website in Zimbabwe reports that he returned home in Zimbabwe last week without informing his club.
According to YANGA’s information officer, Dismas Ten, he said the club is surprised by reports that Ngoma left the country without permission.
“We have heard that he has left, to go to Zimbabwe but we have no information because he did not communicate with us. If the reports are true, then we will be disappointed and we will obviously take action,” Dismas said.
Meanwhile, an unnamed source within the club’s hierarchy added that they are ready to axe the player for indiscipline.
“He thinks he is bigger than the club. He feels like God in the club and can do what he wants,” adds the News Day’s source.
“For example right now he is in Zimbabwe, he left without informing us but he will want to get paid at the end of the month. Who would want to keep a player like that?.”
Ngoma joined YANGA in 2015, where he became an instant hero after his goals helped the team to win the league.
