MBABANE – Barely a week after former Vovovo FC starlet Leon Manyisa left the country to sign with FC Van in Armenia, another star from the National First Division outfit is set to join a European team.

Vovovo midfielder Mxolisi Tsabedze has earned himself a dream move to try his luck in Slovakia. Contrary to Manyisa’s move in which the former Vovovo striker penned a two-year contract, Tsabedze is going  to the European country for two weeks trials. Slovakia, officially the Slovak Republic, is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It is bordered by Poland to the north, Ukraine to the east, Hungary to the south, Austria to the west, and the Czech Republic to the northwest. Slovakia’s territory spans about 49 000 square kilometres and is mostly mountainous.

According to a source close to the matter, the player will leave tonight for Europe. “We have always known that it was part of the deal to give our players a chance to play in Europe. Manyisa was part of that deal and Mxolisi Tsabedze is the second player to join Manyisa for an overseas move. The Spanish agent, together with Victor McDonald, had promised the team that they would facilitate opportunities for local players to play in Europe,” the source said. When reached for comment Vovovo Director Sipho ‘Tsetla’ Bhembe confirmed that the player was leaving the country tonight.

“Yes it is true that Mxolisi Tsabedze is going to Europe. The person who might be privy to the name of the team and details to these proposed trials is the agent, Victor McDonald. I only facilitated with his guidance,” Bhembe said. His agent, Victor McDonald, could not be reached for comment last night. Efforts to get a comment from the player proved futile as his number rang unanswered when called several times last night. The last call was made at 7:15pm. Tsabedze has been with the team since promotion stage. He played an instrumental role in helping the team get promotion in the Super league, First Division and Premier league. Despite been relegated this past season, Tsabedze stuck with the team and somehow one would say he has been greatly rewarded.
