Mahachi speaks on future

CAPE TOWN - Zimbabwe national football team slippery winger Kuda Mahachi has revealed his desire to play in South Africa’s Absa Premier Soccer League.

Mahachi has been in great form at the ongoing African Nations Championship (Chan) tournament. He put in a man-of-the-match display as Zimbabwe surprised everyone by knocking Mali out in the quarterfinals on Saturday night with a 2-1 win at Cape Town Stadium.

“For now I don’t know anything, but I am hoping to come and play in South Africa’s PSL. My manager is sorting all of this out and my focus now is on the field,” Mahachi said told SuperSport yesterday.

“I do want to come to South Africa and express myself in the PSL.”

Asked whether he sees the Super Diski as a stepping stone to a career in Europe, a path that has been taken by several Zimbabweans over the years like Benjani Mwaruwrau and Onismor Bhasera, Mahachi said: “If the chance comes to move to the PSL and then get a chance to go to Europe I will take it.

“But moving to the PSL is my first step,” said the Warriors’ exciting ‘number 10’.

Mahachi has already been on trial at Mamelodi Sundowns, an experience he says was very helpful.

“At Sundowns the coach (Pitso Mosimane) told me I am a good player and he may or may not sign me. I am now waiting to hear from my manager.”

There are reports that he has already signed a pre-contract with the Brazilians but Mahachi’s camp and the Tshwane-based club are keeping a tight lid on the developments.

Mahachi, who is on the books of Southern Region Division ne side Bantu Rovers, has been in dazzling form for Chicken Inn  in the Castle Premiership where he has been on loan for the past two seasons. 

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe national team yesterday continued with their preparations to face Libya tomorrow in the Chan semifinals.

The 2-1 win against Mali on Saturday saw the Warriors progress to the last four of the continental tournament reserved for players plying their trade in the domestic league.

And having failed to go past the group stages in the previous two editions, it was something of an achievement for Ian Gorowa’s men who started their campaign with two goalless draws against Morocco and Uganda in the group stages.
