MUNETSI EYES AFCON
8 August 2018
ORLANDO Pirates utility player Marshall Munetsi has his eyes on the AFCON qualifiers.
Munetsi is favourite of coach Sunday Chidzambwa but he has only played in an invitational tournament in Zambia and Cosafa Cup in South Africa.
“Hopefully by the grace of God I will get another call-up to the national team. It’s always a dream playing for my beloved country,” he told H-Metro.
“I have been trying to work hard for many years to try to improve myself but I want to thank the coach for having confidence in me and that has been shown through the few call ups I have had from him.
“I also want to thank God for this and everything he has done for me and my career because talent alone is nothing without him.”
Munetsi will however need to work hard to be guaranteed a place at his club first.
“My goals for this year is to help my team finish in a better position than last season and to also work hard to get more game time. But all of that will only count with the team winning some silverware.
“And I think people should expect a better player than the one they saw before. With the kind of training sessions and analysis we have with the team it is helping us to play good football.
“There is no pressure because I have been playing for a big club and there is always pressure in every game, you have to improve and win.
“For me as a midfielder, I need to distribute, make interceptions, help the team the same as much as l can and I hope on doing more for my club.
Munetsi has been joined by another Zimbabwean Kuda Mahachi who made a move from Golden Arrows.
“It’s always good to have someone from your home country and he is a top player who has shown his talent already. He is also a good guy who is working hard to help the team win more games.
“It’s always nice because we talk more about how we can improve each other’s game. Want to thank God because talent alone is nothing without him,” he said.
