Former Warriors Team Manager Wellington Mpandare, has provided an update on the hopes of recruiting Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson for a Zimbabwean international career.
Nelson, who has three goals and three appearances for Arsenal this season, is the son of a Zimbabwean father and British mom.
“I was using Alex Iwobi as means to get in touch with Nelson but since his move to Everton I had to use other people but it’s now up to the new coach if he wants him,” Mpandare told Soccer24.
“For now the interviews for national team manager have not been concluded and I can’t be chasing for players when I’m not the manager and at the same time I don’t know if the new coach wants him. If he is wanted by the coach then there can be progress,” he added.
Meanwhile the 20-year-old Nelson and Arsenal have a huge FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City this weekend.
