Ohilwe’s overseas move on hold
<p>The controversy surrounding BMC has affected Musa Ohilwe’s proposed overseas move. The defender had agreed personal terms with Slovakian club FC Nitra but the transfer has been temporarily shelved because of his current club’s ownership dispute. The Slovakian club was among other overseas teams that had shown interest in his services.<p> FC Nitra was ahead of the other interested clubs after making an official move for the Zebras defender. A dispute between the leadership of the Lobatse side has disrupted the move after the Slovakian side was unsure of the legitimate owners of the club when attempting to finalise the deal. Ohilwe was supposed to go for a medical in July to complete the transfer. <p>He told Gazette Sport that despite the frustrating situation, he is optimistic of securing a move in the next transfer window. <p><br data-mce-bogus=”1″><p>“FC Nitra has been patient and understanding. They have given me more time because of my club’s situation. If the matter is resolved soon, I could get the green light to move to Slovakia because they have been in regular contact with me. However, since the transfer window is currently closed, I can only move in the January transfer window. This has been a very difficult time for me but I will keep my fingers crossed for the situation to be resolved,” said the former Gaborone United defender. <p><br data-mce-bogus=”1″><p> According to the 27-year-old defender, both camps in conflict at BMC had given him their blessing to move abroad. Meanwhile, Ohilwe is adamant that he would have no difficulty in terms of adapting to a different environment.<p><br data-mce-bogus=”1″><p>“I have played in high profile games before for the national team and I am confident of adapting to the Slovakian league. I have even started training twice a day to prepare for the intensity of an overseas league. Doubling my efforts in training can help me maintain my shape; I train alone in the morning and join the rest of the team for the regular afternoon training sessions,” he concluded. <p><br data-mce-bogus=”1″><p> An insider has told this reporter that the divisions at BMC have resulted in a situation where two sets of teams train in separate locations. The new players signed by the club have been training in Gaborone at New Era College while the old guard of the club has remained in Lobatse at their usual training ground, according to the source.<p><br data-mce-bogus=”1″><p> “New players and the old group of players have not yet had a chance to train together and they are like strangers to each because each group conducts training in different areas,” said the source.
