Mu­tizwa stays put at Bid­vest

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Noel Mun­z­abwa, re­cently in Jo­han­nes­burg, South Africa

FOR­MER High­landers striker Knox Mu­tizwa has been reg­is­tered by Bid­vest Wits for the new sea­son quash­ing ru­mours of a loan move to a Tan­za­nian club.

The 2015 Cas­tle Lager Premier Soc­cer League golden boot win­ner re­vealed that he will be don­ning jersey num­ber 14 at his new home.

Speak­ing af­ter a 3-0 pre-sea­son friendly match win over Na­tional First Divi­sion side Black Leop­ards played on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, Mu­tizwa said he was glad he would be stay­ing at Wits.

“I am glad I have been reg­is­tered for the new sea­son and will be don­ning Jersey num­ber 14. This gives me the con­fi­dence I needed so much and I am glad I have a brother in Cuth­bert Mala­jila who has been guid­ing me through this jour­ney,” said Mu­tizwa.

In re­cent days there have been grow­ing ru­mours link­ing Mu­tizwa with a loan deal to an un­named Tan­za­nian club.

Mu­tizwa also ap­pealed to re­main­ing High­landers play­ers to rise to the oc­ca­sion and min­imise the im­pact cre­ated by the de­par­ture of key play­ers.

“I am wor­ried my club (Bosso) has not been do­ing well in re­cent matches since my de­par­ture which was fol­lowed by Bruce Kangwa’s move to Tan­za­nia. Bruce was a key fig­ure who could guide us through our ca­reers but in­evitably he has left and the chal­lenge is on those re­main­ing to rise to the oc­ca­sion.

“The next key player will come from the re­main­ing play­ers and it will take be­lief from some of them to rise which I be­lieve it will be soon.

“I also urge the High­landers play­ers and fans to be pa­tient un­til such a mo­ment the club turns the cor­ner,” said Mu­tizwa.

Mean­while, Mala­jila has de­scribed Mu­tizwa as “a young player full of po­ten­tial.”

“In the few months I have been with Knox I have seen a young player full of po­ten­tial. I am even con­fi­dent he will scale new heights in foot­ball con­sid­er­ing the en­ergy he puts through,” said Mala­jila.

The South Africa soc­cer cal­en­dar gets un­der­way on Tues­day.
