“We are not saying we are the richest team but we don’t have financial problems and the team is looking very well after the players so please just back off.”
Of the big four‚ Da Gama only mentioned SuperSport United.
“We are not mentioning names but when the team got relegated (at the end of the 2016/17 season) SuperSport United was one of the teams who openly wanted to sign Mvala.
“The boy refused and said he wanted to stay and help Highlands Park back to the PSL. He’s been loyal to the club.”
Da Gama will have his hands full trying to hold onto his most prized asset as the big-money offers from Europe and locally continue to trickle in.
But the coach said the indication he is getting from Mvala is that he wants to stay.
“Most definitely yes‚” said Da Gama when asked if Mvala is happy to stay with Highlands.
“I think Mvala wants to get into the national team.
“He has very big ambitions. He doesn’t just want to move to one of the bigger teams locally but wants to go play overseas.”
