The two soccer star of the year finalists have not been reporting for training since the Mighty Bulls regrouped for their January 29 Caf Champions League preliminary round match against Snap Sports of Madagascar in Harare.
Sibanda and Ncube who were very influential in Motor Action’s 2010 league title challenge have been registered in the Mighty Bulls 23 member squad for the Champions League.
It is suspected the players may be seeking a move to newly promoted Mimosa Club which is offering good renumeration.
Mighty Bulls is hoping to emulate the 1998 achievements of Dynamos who reached the final of the continental club
competition. Or at least they want to reach the mini league stage.
However, Motor Action assistant coach David George downplayed the crisis, saying his club was focusing attention on the players in training ‘Everything is going on well. The guys in training know our goal and that is what they are focusing on.’
He said the absence of the players was not a distraction to Motor Action’s preparations for the continental safari adding that Motor Action had enough resources after recruiting the likes of Ocean Mushure, Tawanda Nyamandwe, and Edmore Chitato.
Motor Action are the third low profile side after Monomotapa in 2008, and Gunners in 2009 to represent Zimbabwe in the Champions League.
