Esrom Nyandoro and Elias Pelembe silently quit Mamelodi Sundowns

Esrom Nyandoro and Elias Pelembe silently quit Mamelodi Sundowns, ,

IT SEEMS veteran Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Esrom Nyandoro has hung up his boots, SunSport has learnt.

The Zimbabwean, along with Mozambican Elias Pelembe, didn't report for pre-season camp, which started at the club's headquarters in Chloorkop last week.

A source close to Sundowns said Nyandoro and Pelembe were nowhere to be found.

"They didn't report for pre-season. The players are now in camp in Mpumalanga and Nyandoro and Pelembe are not with them," said the source.

If Nyandoro has officially hung up his boots, it will bring to an end what was a stellar football career at Sundowns.

The 35-year-old Nyandoro arrived at Sundowns during the 2004-05 season while Gordon Igesund was still head coach.

A year after winning the league title with AmaZulu, Nyandoro was named PSL Rookie of the Year in his debut season with Downs.

He would add two more league titles with the club in the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons – additions to various personal accolades, notably the President's Award for commendable behaviour on and off the field of play.

With current head coach Pitso Mosimane preferring up-and-coming players like Bongani Zungu in the defensive midfield slot, Nyandoro was gradually sidelined.

Indications are, however, that like other retired players at Sundowns, Nyandoro could be offered a job at development or managerial level.

The likes of Peter Ndlovu, Godfrey Sapula and Mike Manzini hold junior coaching and team manager jobs at Sundowns.
