Striker Tangeni Shipahu last featured for the Brave Warriors about four years ago when they faced Nigeria.

On several occasions after that, former gaffer Ricardo Mannetti called him a couple of times to be part of his plans for matches, “however plans didn't materialise, but I never retired or denied a chance to play for my country,” says Shipahu.



Club level

As much as he is keen and open to making a return to the national side, the 33-year-old Shipahu, who has played for more than five clubs in Thailand, is also looking for a club.

He is currently a free agent after he recently parted ways with Thai club Phitsanulok where he played five matches and scored three goals, having featured late for the club due to permit delays.

He says he left the club in April this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic with the hope of returning to the club if things get better.

“Things however didn't get better and in the process my contract also ended in June. I then returned to Namibia and then set my sights on other clubs. I travelled to South Africa to train with a certain club that is interested in signing me. I can't disclose the club at the moment because we are still negotiating.

“I couldn't sign when I was there due to complications with my work permit. But things look promising and I can't wait to return and put pen to paper and then only can I reveal the club,” added Shipahu.



Move to SA

Shipahu, who previously played for Amazulu, is rumoured to be keen on a return to SA to play for one of the clubs, either in the Absa Premiership, or an ambitious National First Division side.

While in the process of working on securing a deal, Shipahu had some wise words to share with local players, saying that they should have discipline.

“Attitude counts. You should also be ready to change environments. Many local players are afraid of relocating. But if you are serous and have passion and know what you want, then playing professional football isn't that hard,” he said.

In addition, he cautioned footballers to be wary of who they pick to represent them.
