Germany-based Young Warriors duo of Shama Bako and Seth Patrick are reportedly set to undergo a two-week trial stint at South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.
The two players are in the junior ranks of German fourth-tier club VfB Lubeck, which gave the England-bred Zimbabweans their first professional contracts.
According to The Standard, the players will travel to South Africa on June 12.
“We confirm that the above-mentioned youth soccer players have been invited by us to attend trials at our club for a period of approximately 14 days with immediate effect to travel to South Africa on the 12th of July 2019,” read the letter written by the club’s administration manager Belinda Ndlovu dated July 5, 2019 and seen by the newspaper.
“They will be responsible for their own flights/ bus and Sundowns FC will be responsible for their accommodation, transport and meals for the duration of their stay in South Africa.”
Patrick and Bako were part of the Tonderai Ndiraya-coached Zimbabwe Under-23 side that beat Mozambique 2-0 on aggregate in the 2019 Under-23 Afcon qualifiers in March to reach the final round of the qualifying campaign where they will face South Africa in September.
