Teenage Hadabe’s club Yeni Malatyaspor is reportedly not happy after the defender failed to travel back to Turkey on time.

The 24-year old is still holed up in Bulawayo waiting for a new passport after his old travel document ran out of pages. He had returned to Zimbabwe to play in the 2021 Afcon Qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia during last week’s FIFA international break.

Hadebe faced problems when the national team travelled to Zambia and was almost denied entry into that country because of the state of his passport. He applied for a new one and was expecting the document could be issued today so that he flies back to his Turkish base.

In an interview with the Herald, Warriors manager Wellington Mpandare confirmed that Yeni Malatyaspor have complained about the player’s absence.

He said: “We have received messages that his employers are very unhappy with the situation, and it’s something that you don’t want to see because relations between an employer and an employee should always be good.

“Obviously, the team wants their player back because all the international players who were on duty for their countries, around the world, have already returned to their clubs.

“Remember Teenage is a very key player for his club, and they want his services all the time, but he can’t fly because the passport is yet to be issued.

“He has already missed today’s (yesterday) big game against Fenerbahce, and it would be a disaster if he misses another match, and that’s why his employers are now unhappy with the whole situation.”
