Rollers axe top striker

Senegalese striker Pape Abdul Ndaw’s days at Township Rollers are numbered-his transfer documentation is expected to be finalized in the coming January transfer window, WeekendSport has been informed.


Ndaw failed to make an immediate impact with the defending champions, scoring only one goal after making less than 5 appearances in as many games. Although The Blues are believed to be treating the issue with ‘silence,’ it is said the team’s patience has finally wilted away for the tallest striker in BTC Premiership.


This publication has been informed that Ndaw was on a season long loan deal with Popa but the player has now lived his last days at Popa due to his dwindling performance. He was signed from an unnamed club in Senegal in June this year. Ndaw, whom reports suggest, is under famous FIFA accredited football agent Paul Mitchell’s stable, was first recruited by Mochudi Centre Chiefs, but protracted talks with the club saw their rivals Township Rollers countering the move, essentially winning him over.


Rollers have so far kept the move under wraps, but information gleaned from various sources at the club suggests that Ndaw is on the unwanted list with long serving defender, Oscar Ncenga. All the while, the club is reported to be in pursuit for a possible replacement. Even though Rollers are eager to fill Ndaw‘s place, the move gives another striker, Kekaetswe Moloi the opportunity to seek reassurance as a first choice. The club’s leading goal scorer Terrence Mandaza has already cemented his position as a first choice goal scorer. The striker is on form for a 2010-11 déjà vu when he became league top goal scorer. To this date, Mandaza tops the BTC scoring charts with 7 goals from 12 games.


The upward trajectory of Mandaza, who nearly fell from favour with his Rollers coach last season, meant that Ndaw faced a tough time and had a high mountain to climb. ‘‘They will not highly maintain it, but I can tell you the club has held a few meetings regarding his future, they are not impressed,’’ a source disclosed.


Rollers are currently looking to defend the premier league title and know all too well that a Mascom top 8 cup will also see restore them to their glory days.  The Mark Harrison side is trailing pretenders to the throne, Orapa United by 2 points albeit enjoying a better goal difference. As the year is wearing down, Rollers is said to be busy in the transfer market to prepare for the CAF competition. Harrison is fancying the chance to parade his troops with bigger and better opponents at the high stage. The search of a striker is expected to be given a first priority to increase the club’s prospect of reaching group stages. The team’s eyeing to break Notwane’s record.
