Kadewere, Nakamba face the axe with their clubs in Europe

FOUR Zimbabwe national team players – Marvelous Nakamba, Tino Kadewere, Jordan Zemura and Teenage Hadebe – are likely to see their European clubs relegated.


Luton Town occupy the third and final relegation slot with 25 points from 35 games, a point behind Nottingham Forest who are 17th

Brentford, in 16th place, is 10 points ahead, a tally that cannot be overhauled in three remaining games.

Luton will visit West Ham and then conclude at home to Fulham and these are three matches that are winnable for the Haters.

Nakamba will not have a say on how the season concludes for Luton as he is out with a long-term injury.


Jordan Zemura made history when he became the first Zimbabwean to play in the Italian Serie A when he moved from Bournemouth to join Udinese, who were making a return to the top-flight league.

A recent run of four defeats and two draws, yielding two points from a possible 18, has left them two points from safety going into the final four matches, starting with a home match against former champions and ninth-placed Napoli on Monday night.

After that, Udinese will play 13th placed Lecce (away), 17th placed Empoli in a massive six-pointer at home and 16th placed Frosinone in another six-pointer away on the final day.


When Zimbabwe international striker Tino Kadewere left Olympique Lyon for Nantes on loan during the January transfer window, his parent club was deep in the French Ligue 1 drop zone while Nantes were seemingly comfortable although in the bottom half.

However, with Kadewere now at Nantes, Lyon have already secured their status for next season and sit comfortably in eighth place with 44 points from 31 matches, 15 points ahead of 16th placed Metz who occupy the final relegation place.

Nantes are just three points from safety and have the French Ligue 1’s third WORST goal difference of minus 20.

Nantes have a very tough conclusion to the season – they face three of the French Ligue 1 Top 4.


Teenage Hadebe moved back to Turkey in January after ending his stint in the United States and joined Konyaspor in the 20-team Super Lig.

They have lost successive matches and collected eight points from a possible 21 since the beginning of March to leave them in 16th place just six points above 19th placed Pendik
