Cape Town - Dynamos striker
Christian Ntouba Epoupa's hopes of joining South African champions Wits
have been dashed through injury.
Epoupa had been set to undergo a two-week
trial with the Clever Boys, but injured his ankle in his first session.
The Cameroon-born marksman will
now be out for a month and will leave Wits to re-join Zimbabwean giants Dynamos
for the time being.
Epoupa's manager Gilbert Sengwe
confirmed the news.
"It's unfortunate that
Christian got injured on his first day of training with Bidvest Wits. He is
already on his way to Harare. According to the club, he needs almost four weeks
to recover," he told NewsDay.
"We will just wait and see
what happens because I am still receiving inquiries from a number of clubs, but
then again he can't go while in that condition. There is nothing we can do for
now, it's very unfortunate."
Epoupa scored 12 league goals for
Dynamos last season, his first in the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League.
He was voted one of the
Premiership's 11 best players of the 2017 season.
