ARGUABLY one of the best full backs in the country, Godknows Murwira says he has settled at new club Ngezi Platinum after a surprise move from Dynamos.
The 2016 soccer star of the year finalist ditched DeMbare after a season to forget where they finished out of the top four in fifth.
Their poor season, however, did not overshadow Murwira’s efforts and contribution to DeMbare as he was voted amongst the league’s best 11 showing his class.
Like many others notably Kenneth Bulaji and Walter Mukanga, Murwira joins former coach Tonderai Ndiraya at Madamburo which has become a destination for many players with a DeMbare history.
Midfielder Dominic Mukandi has also departed the Harare Giants to join Ngezi Platinum.
Ndiraya’s men, who won the Chibuku Super Cup, will participate in the CAF Confederations Cup were they will face Pamplemousses of Mauritius on the weekend of 10-12 February 2017.
Murwira says he has settled at Madamburo were he expects to be part of success.
“I can say everything is promising for me at the moment and we are busy with our preparations.
“It’s not easy moving to another club with their ambitions but the aim is to be useful to the club ahead of the CAF competition and everything after that,” he said.
The former Monomotapa and Shabanie player also mentioned working with former coach Ndiraya at Ngezi being good for him.
“The coach has been good to me and the club is looking forward to a great season which is good for us.
“The players are good and the competition for places makes us a good team.
“Knowing some of the players obviously made it easy for me so we all look ahead to the challenges ahead,” he added.
The Dynamos connection is evidenced at Ngezi who made their premiership debut in 2016 with seasoned players such as Partson Jaure, Tichaona Mabvura, Washington Pakamisa, Bulaji, Mukanga, Murwira and even Qadr Amini forming a long list of former Dynamos players together with their coach Ndiraya.
Murwira joined Dynamos from Shabanie Mine in 2015 and worked with Ndiraya at the Harare Giants before the latter moved to Ngezi Platinum in 2016.
