Simbarashe Musendami, the boy from Mhondoro

Since his arrival at the club earlier this year, Musendami has captured the hearts of many fans with his abilities on the pitch. Referred to by many as “Mambare” or “Camavinga” due to his ability to play in almost any position, Simbarashe Musendami has made a name for himself at MWOS FC.

Musendami started playing football at a very young age. He was only 7 years old when he kicked his first ball. “I instantly fell in love with the game,” said Musendami as he was narrating how he started playing football. “I grew up in Mhondoro Ngezi, and what I remember most from my childhood is playing football with my friends in the fields and dreaming about making it to the top flight someday.”

At the age of 17, Musendami joined Black Aces, where he stayed before eventually joining MWOS FC this year. “Besides the moment I signed for this club, I was voted player of the year three times in a row at Aces. I shock myself sometimes; I didn’t know other people appreciated my talent that much,” said Musendami after being asked about his fondest memory in football. “I owe a lot of what I do on the pitch to my mother. She has always supported me and my dream to play the game, and I play each game knowing how much it means for her to see me succeed.”

When asked about how he felt about signing and playing for the Punters, he said, “It felt good, really good. Lloyd Mutasa, Wonder Ngoko, and Warren Mapanga are great coaches. Anyone would want to be coached by them.”

Simbabarashe Musendami remains one of the key players for Lloyd Mutasa due to his ability to adjust to any position, and we can look forward to seeing a lot of him in MWOS FC colours.
