Roderick Mutuma’s decision to leave Bosso didn’t come as only a shock to fans who have shown mixed reactions, but to the coach Erol Akbay as well.

Akbay was a strong admirer of the player and recomended him to the club despite a huge backlash.

Mutuma signed a $4000 – 6 month contract that will see him play the remainder of the season at ambitious Yadah FC.

In an interview with the Chronicle, the Dutch tactician ackowledged that the player faced challenges at the club and contrary to popular beliefs he was a well disciplined player.

“I feel bad because he was a good player with good character. I am however happy that he has finally reunited with his wife because it was a difficult time for him here in Bulawayo while his wife was in Harare,” said Akbay.

He said although he could clearly see that the player was a troubled soul, which might have also affected his performance, he had hoped he could soldier on up to the end of the year.

“My honest hope was that he stayed with us up to the end of the year,” said Akbay
