Gome hopes to revive career
27 January 2020 | Sports
Brave Warriors midfielder and former Cape Umoya United player Wangu Gome is eager to find a club.
The midfielder has been without a club since his contract with the South African first division side ended in December.
Gome is currently in Windhoek and has been training on his own to remain fit. The player is however confident that he will make a big move as soon as possible.
“I have big plans but it is definitely premature to say much about it at the moment.
“All I can tell you is that I have been in talks with a few clubs.
“The move will certainly be out of Namibia but I can't tell whether it will be back to South Africa or another country,” Gome said.
He is known to cause all kinds of problems for the opposition with his on-the-ball skills.
However, he has been suffering from a knee injury, which has seen him miss crucial tournaments involving the country, as well as his former club Umoya United.
Gome entered the PSL following his heroic performances at the 2015 Cosafa Cup, which saw Namibia winning the tournament for the first time. He was voted player of the tournament. He attracted the attention of Bidvest Wits and joined them in the 2015/16 season, but was underutilised by the club during his spell with the South African giants.
He got his first taste of cup success in South Africa when Bidvest Wits powered to an emphatic 3-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 final. Wits, however, released the player after an injury-prone campaign. “I do miss playing regular football because it is indeed something I love with all my heart.
“The most important thing is to remain optimistic that something big could come up,” he added.
