HIGHLANDERS captain Ariel Sibanda and vice-captain Nqobizitha Masuku say they remain loyal to the Bosso cause despite reports that they wanted to leave the club.

The duo was reported to be on its way out of the club, as Bosso struggled to pay salaries for about three months.

Bosso players staged a sit-in in a bid to force management to pay them, and it was reported that there'd be an exodus on search of greener pastures.

However, Bosso's fortunes turned around when the club sealed massive deals with Utande and Sakunda Holdings.

Sibanda received a brand-new car from Sakunda Holdings as part of the deal.

Sibanda distanced himself from a Facebook post on his timeline that announced his departure from Bosso, saying his Facebook account was hacked.

"When my account was hacked, l quickly got in touch with the club. As you know l never officially wrote to the club announcing my departure. So, when l realised my account had been hacked, l got in touch with the club and we handled the matter internally," said Sibanda without elaborating.

Masuku, however, admitted writing to the club expressing his desire to leave.

"I would say you know the difficult circumstances that we were facing at that time. So, it's true l wrote to the club wanting to leave, but it was an internal issue which has now been sorted. There is no friction in camp because of that move. We take it in a professional manner. Now that we have sponsorship from Utande and Sakunda, it's football as usual. We are focusing on the next match," said Masuku.

They said the team was training hard and is ready for the clash against Bulawayo Chiefs on Thursday.
