SIMBA Nhivi believes only with God’s guidance can he be able to face challenges and achieve set objectives.

The striker, who is in the process of cutting ties with Tanzanian side Singida to return to CAPS United, says battles must always be fought in the spirit.

In a Sportszone interview on Star FM yesterday, Nhivi also called on all upcoming players to surround themselves with positive influence.

“We are urging celebrities and footballers to surround themselves with people who know God because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom.

“The well-known celebrities, these guys that are coming up they look up to the big players,” Nhivi said.

Nhivi started his career in the Premiership at Shooting Stars before announcing his arrival in green and white at CAPS United.

It was during that time that he made the big break to Mamelodi Sundowns, a move that was short-lived as he failed to make an impression.

He returned back to Zimbabwe and turned out for Dynamos before leaving for the ABSA Premiership again to join SuperSport United. It was a similar story.

He bounced back at Dynamos again before crossing the floor to rejoin CAPS United.

Last year he moved to Singida in what was believed to be a lucrative move, but it has also been short-lived.

“Issues are being discussed with my management team and the Tanzanian team and they are not yet finished and we are just waiting to see what is going to happen.

“There was some payment problems that was happening there so we just said okay and my management team and the Tanzanian team set down and they want to come up with the terms and whatever they are going to do,” said Nhivi.

The striker believes that despite all challenges a player faces, he has to remain focused.

“Youngsters have to learn one thing, they have to be disciplined. When you are disciplined you are able to go far as a footballer.

“When I grew up I saw the importance of staying around people who go to church and the effect that it has in our lives as footballers, so I think it helps a lot,” he said.
