Munuvire leaves for South Africa

HARARE - ZPC Kariba  winger Raphael Manuvire is scheduled to travel to South Africa this morning to try his luck at Absa Premiership sides Moroka Swallows and Polokwane City, the Daily News has learnt.

The South African clubs have started their pre-season training and are looking at bolstering their squads ahead of the new season which starts in August and Manuvire will spend at least two weeks there.

Manuvire’s manager Edzai Kasinauyo could not be reached for comment but sources close to the goings-on confirmed to the Daily News about the development.

“He is leaving tomorrow (today) and he should be there for about two weeks,” said a source.

“He is heading to Moroka Swallows and Polokwane City. He was seen in action during the Cosafa Cup earlier this year.”

Manuvire worked his way to return to his best form after his career went up in smoke after the ZPC Kariba midfielder was at the receiving end of a nasty challenge from Chapungu United’s Blessed Mbuvarira during a league match in June 2014.

The tackle was so crude that former ZPC Kariba coach Saul Chaminuka cried when he saw the extent of Manuvire’s injury.

The 26-year-old attacking midfielder was sidelined for over six months.

At that time there was no doubt that Manuvire was enjoying the best football of his career such that a lot of people doubted if he would emulate the same form.

The former Douglas Warriors and Mwana Africa midfielder has fully recovered from the injury and has six goals in the 16 matches already this season.
