After two irregular and largely under-achieving years at Luzira, Rashid Agau may be moving on from Maroons in the upcoming transfer window.
There have been lots of concerns over the striker’s work ethic, commitment, and attitude towards the game right from his Onduparaka days to Maroons prompting pundits to label him ‘lazy’.
In two seasons, Agau has scored 12 goals in 20 games for Maroons, in-spite of being part of a failing team which eventually was relegated to the FUFA Big League and playing under rough conditions of delayed salaries.
At the time of his arrival, George Best Nsimbe was in-charge and over the two years, Agau has played under Robert Sekwayama, Douglas Bamweyana, and Charles Ayiekoh.
To put up a record of 12 goals as changes in managerial and payment schedule takes place is interesting indeed.
A series of prolonged disagreement or heated discussion over the same, however, have brought the star’s continuity in Maroons appear under threat.
And there will be no shortage of possible destinations for a complete forward who apparently is full of potential.
The following, in order of most to least likely, is a selection of the places Agau could be popping up to play in 2020/21.
Speculation linking the striker with former side Onduparaka have been all over in the streets of Arua.
Agau admitted to Football256 that he is familiar with the reports placing him at the Greenlight Stadium for the coming season.
“Just like you, I also hear the rumours in the streets and papers but Onduparaka has not made an official contact with me or my agent,” he said.
With all the talk surrounding Agau and his next home, it is unwise to rule out the possibility of the goal poacher staying put.
He has had his troubles in Luzira, but the club doesn’t look ready to let the lad go.
Meanwhile he spoke to this writer about how he believed the discontinued season could have turned up to be great given the freedom he had from injury.
“I was going to have a great season because I didn’t have injury interruption,” he mentioned before adding aspects that frustrated him
“You know playing with delayed payment affects concentration on the field because you have worries about rent and food instead of how to score.”
Biashara United FC
Although last year the business between the Tanzanian side Biashara FC and Agau turned out bad after Maroons’ refusal to sanction the transfer of the player who already pocketed three million Tanzanian shillings, Biashara FC was still open for another chance.
If the meeting slated to take place between Agau and his bosses next week will lead to partying ways smoothly, Biashara FC might be enticed to make the second move.
Kinondoni Municipal Council FC (KMC FC)
Agau is a known name in Tanzania and thus the reason the club based in Kinondoni district in Dar-es-Salaam is second to Biashara FC to have interest in him.
Sources close to the player mentioned due to a previous unsuccessful deal between player and Biashara, the relegation threatened side will only talk business on condition the striker’s representative is in Tanzania.
Given the travel restriction, chances of Agau shifting to cross borders has been limited.
With the player planning to meet his bosses next week, if assurance is given and payment methods are practically revised besides clearance of debt, what would force him out?
The striker is still under contract until 2021, and any club who wishes to purchase his talents will have to put in a bid tempting enough to force the hands of Maroons hierarchy.
