Best of the Best-Biggie Zuze

Former Dynamos midfield kingpin, Biggie Zuze, gave many opponents a torrid time with his classical play. Playing alongside such stars like Clayton Munemo and Memory Mucherahowa, the attacking midfielder, was a marvel to watch for the “Glamour Boys”.

He recently took us through his best choices.

My Best Team

That Bulawayo club, Eagles, played the most entertaining brand of football in the country and produced great players like Rahman Gumbo and Boy Ndlovu.

My Best Stadium

There are two stadiums – Barbourfields in Bulawayo, which has a good turf and always gave us a electrifying environment when we played against Highlanders and the National stadium, our slaughter house, especially on cup games.

My Best Midfield Partner

I liked my partnership with David Mandigora, Kennedy Jele and Clayton Munemo. The understanding we had was unbelievable. We demolished many teams that way.

My Most Memorable Game

When we beat Black Rhinos 2-0 in a league match in 1985, Moses Chunga and I were on top of our game. Chunga created the second goal, scored by Kennedy Jele. The second game was in the 1986 Zifa Cup final against, when again, beat Rhinos 1-0 through Max Makanza’s solitary goal at the National stadium. I had just come from a month-long absence from a knee injury.

My Best Ever Zimbabwean Players

There are many who produced sterling performances during their playing days and had they to be assembled in one team, they would have won any cup on offer, including the Africa Cup of nations or Champions league. Moses Chunga, Willard Khumalo, Peter Ndlovu, Stix Mutizwa, Boy Ndlovu and Joel Shambo.

My Toughest Opponent

All midfielders from Rio Tinto gave me a nightmare in football. They were quick, strong and great ball distributors.

My Best Ever African Footballer

There are a couple of them starting with our own icon, Peter Ndlovu – a complete player and a marvel to watch. Kalusha Bwalya the Zambian, former world footballer George Weah from Liberia and the Cameroonian Samuel Eto’o.
