B-Warriors' captain clubless

ARGUABLY the most exciting player on the Brave Warriors team, Petrus Shitembi is still without a club, despite being the captain of the national team since he was appointed to that role by former Brave Warriors coach Ricardo Mannetti in July, following the retirement of Ronald Ketjijere from international football. Shitembi is a product of Rundu Chiefs Football Club in Rundu and is back in Namibia after attending a training session with a second division football club in Germany, SpVgg Greuther Fürth, after impressing the club’s management while on duty with Namibia at the Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt. An attacking midfielder, Shitembi previously played professional football in South Africa for AmaZulu, for the University of Pretoria team (AmaTuks) and Stellenbosch FC before he went on to play in Ghana for Ashanti Gold FC, and in Zambia for Lusaka Dynamos. Locally, he had a stint with Tura Magic in the Namibia Premier League (NPL). Speaking to Confidente Sport this week, Shitembi said he expects to sign up with a foreign club soon, although he could not reveal the name of the club at this stage. “In Germany it was not like a trial but it was just an invitation by the club after they said that they were impressed with my performances at the AFCON. I was in Germany for a few weeks... Everything went well for me in Germany. I’m still sorting out some things here. I have contacts outside Namibia but I cannot reveal the information. I’m currently without a club.”
