FORMER Warriors and FC Platinum ‘keeper, Petros Mhari, is set to come out of retirement to play for Hwange for the remainder of the season. 

Mhari called it quits at the end of last season after serving the former champions for a decade. 

Recently, he hinted on his Facebook account about his wish to play the last half of the season. Others pleaded with him to make that U-turn. Some encouraged him to enjoy his retirement and new role at FC Platinum’s developmental side where he is currently working as a goalkeepers’ coach. 

But, Rodwell Dhlakama, the man who is in charge of Chipangano, appears to have responded to Mhari’s request. 

Dhlakama claimed their second win of the season when they floored his former employers, Green Fuel 1-0, last weekend at the Colliery. 

This was Dhlakama’s first win in three attempts since his appointment having managed a draw and a loss.

Dhlakama told Zimpapers Sport that his team was in dire need of experienced players. 

He also revealed that he has been trying to convince Mhari to help him improve Chipangano’s cause.  And, Mhari is believed to be negotiating with FC Platinum to afford him the chance to end his career where it all started. 

Mhari joined FC Platinum from Hwange as a 24-year-old and retired at 34. 

“We have youngsters with a lot of potential in our team but we also lack experience, which has been a big letdown for us because there are games you need the big boys. 

“Mhari has always been a fine goalkeeper and I have confidence in his ability and he is one player I think can make a difference in our team.  Our challenge is we are not going to find the best players during the break but it’s my wish to add more better and experienced players for us to survive relegation,” said Dhlakama. 

He added: 

“Mhari is also familiar with this environment and I know this will be key in our bid to survive the chop because he is not someone who needs to be told what it means to play for Hwange. 

“We just hope that our leadership will convince him to join the team as he has shown a desire to join this group of players.”
