Warriors team manager Wellington Mpandare says there has been some progress in securing Macauley Bonne a Zimbabwean passport after receiving support from Minister of Sport Kirsty Coventry.

The process has dragged for too long due to new laws which require him to renounce his UK citizenship first before getting a local passport.

Bonne, 24, was born in the UK to Zimbabwean parents but chose to play for Zimbabwe at international level.

In an interview with the Herald, Mpandare said they are confident ‘something’ will happen in the coming days.

‘’We have received support from the Minister of Sport (Kirsty Coventry), and we have taken the documents where they are supposed to be, and we are confident that something will happen in the coming days,’’ said the manager.

Bonne, meanwhile, has been in top form at Championship side Charlton Athletic and he scored his fifth goal in six matches on Saturday.

The striker was included in the preliminary selection for Warriors’ upcoming Afcon qualifiers next month.
