Tuks clear the air on Mulenga


Tuks’ manager Graham Oosthuis says he is surprised at reports claiming Mulenga is on loan at the club from Swedish side Orgryte IS, but admits there has been contact with Israeli club Maccabi Petach Tikva.

The talented Zambian is currently in Ghana with the Chipolopolo Boys and came on as a substitute on Tuesday in the 3-0 demolition of Sudan.

“There hasn’t been any agreement reached with regards to Clifford moving to Israel, but I can confirm that we are busy with talks at the moment with regards to the boy leaving the club,” Oosthuis tells snl24.com/kickoff.

“Clifford is not on loan with us but has a one-year contract that he signed at the beginning of the season. His previous contract expired at the end of last season and his new deal runs up to the end of the season. So, whoever is interested goes through us as his club. In any case, we are fully behind the boy making a move that suits him,” he adds.

There have been reports in recent weeks maintaining that Mulenga’s move is still subject to a medical test that he failed to attend on January 14 as he was in camp with the Zambia national team preparing for the Nations Cup finals.

It was also reported that Mulenga recently clinched a three-year deal in Israel worth R2, 5-million.
