Songani finally rewarded: Mawiwi

HARARE - Harare City coach Bigboy Mawiwi believes Silas Songani’s move to Danish top-flight side Sonderjyske furnishes ample proof of the winger’s rank as the finest player in the country for last year.

Songani, who was pipped – controversially so in the eyes of many neutrals – to the 2013 Soccer Stars award by Dynamos’ Tawanda Muparati, is set to become the latest Zimbabwean player to break into a European league following his inspirational performances for the Sunshine Boys and the Zimbabwe national team last year.

The former Laliga player was one of the reasons City challenged for the Castle Premiership title, only losing the championship on goal difference to Dynamos.

Songani also announced his arrival on the international stage by putting in a number of splendid performances for the Warriors after he was given his debut by former Warriors coach Klaus-Dieter Pagels.

Songani was expected to pen a two-and-half year deal Sonderjyske after impressing during a trial stint at the weekend.

The Zimbabwe international’s manager, More Moyo flew out to Denmark on Friday evening to finalise the deal.

“God works in miraculous ways,” Bigboy Mawiwi, the City coach, told the Daily News.

“The truth is Silas was the best player in the country last year. I’m not saying this because I was his coach but his performances speak for themselves.

“I know Songani is headed for even bigger heights.”

Mawiwi added that Songani’s greatest attribute is his personality.

“Silas he is prayerful, he is respectful and he is humble,” said Mawiwi.

“I’m very supportive of him and I have been fortunate enough to have been communicating with him during his trials in Denmark.

“He says the environment has been difficult to adjust to, but he is determined that is why the coaches there have been impressed with his work ethic.

“He is still young; the sky is the limit for him.”

Sonderjyske are the former club of Zimbabwe international Quincy Antipas, who was spent two years at the Haderslev-based side before moving to Brondby in 2012.
