Warriors and international based football player Nyasha Mushekwi has committed to personally pay his teammates remaining balances to turn away an abandonment of the Total Africa Cup of Nations tournament which is currently underway in Cairo.
The former Caps United player who has been ruled out of the tournament even though he is still training, spoke to the players about the importance of fulfilling the remaining match or matches. He outlined the damage that boycotting will have on the players’ careers and the country’s image.
Mushekwi said he was prepared to use his own funds and asked the Warriors to rethink about their threat not to fulfil the DRC game on Sunday.
Zimbabwe head of delegation Farai Jere while confirming that there were issues over allowances for the players, said the players will fulfil Sunday’s final Group A match against the Democratic Republic of Congo.
“I want to assure the nation that we are going to play our final group game on Sunday and are looking forward to a positive result. These boys are aware of the impact that qualification will have on their footballing careers but we are also cognisant that we don’t have to turn a blind eye to their concerns, the association will always have an ear on issues to do with the welfare of the team, we are a listening association,” said Jere.
