Former Zimbabwe Internationals Tinashe Nengomasha and Butler Masango have confirmed that they were behind Ronald Pfumbidzai’s move to Bloemfontein Celtic.

The former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder is said to have spoke with the ABSA Premiership side’s assistant coach during the COSAFA Castle Cup. Masango then later met with player’s manager who agreed the terms.

In an interview with the Herald Nengomasha said he recommended the player to Celtic after watching him playing in the Champions League.

“I watched Ronald Pfumbidzai playing for CAPS United in this year’s Champions League and I saw something special in him. And that’s when I decided to recommend him to Bleomfontein Celtic,” he said

“And I’m glad to say that we were successful in bringing him down here to South Africa and I’m quite confident that he will do well, but he needs all the support we can give him because we already know how it is to play in a foreign country like South Africa.”

Nengomasha also added that their big interest is on player’s welfare so that he settles perfectly.

“What we are basically interested in is the welfare of the player not the monetary side of the deal because a number of so-called football agents tend to dump players when things don’t go well for them and they (the players) end up being frustrated and homesick.”

Nengomasha was also behind the signing of fellow Zimbabwean players Knowledge Musona, Willard Katsande and Thomas Sweswe at Chiefs while Masango has produced some talented young South African players such as Emmanuel Lethlotho (Kaizer Chiefs), Nana Akosah (Cape Town City), Tholang Lwana (Free State Stars) and many more who are now playing in that country’s Premiership reserve sides and academies.
