Chapo rules Namibian top flight league

footballBULAWAYO - Lanky Zimbabwean born midfielder, Milton Chapo, is enjoying a tremendous spell in Namibia.
The former Shabanie Mine midfield marvel has been in top form for his Windhoek-based club Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) that has seen them fighting for honours in the branded MTC Namibian Premier Soccer League.

Chapo, who is also the son of former Dynamos great Angirayi Chapo, moved to SKW in 2009 in search of greener pastures and the pastures have appeared much greener than he expected.

“I am playing for Sport Klub Windhoek, the first club that I joined after moving from Zimbabwe. I joined the team in 2009 straight from Shabanie Mine. In Zimbabwe I used to play for Shabanie Mine which I joined in 2004. I was 18 at that time. Moses Bambo Chunga took me there,” Chapo recalled.

He played an integral role at Shabanie Mine under the tutelage of the outspoken former Warriors gaffer, Chunga. He gelled in well for the Chinda Boys and played with the likes of current Warriors skipper Method Mwanjali and the late Misheck Makota.

“I really learnt a lot at Shabanie Mine. In fact, my professional career as a soccer player began there. I played with the likes of Clarkson Dzimbiri, the late Misheck Makota, Method Mwanjali, Charles Mwase, David Shoko, Thabani Goredema and Rowan Nenzou. The list is endless,” he said.

“The reason I came to Namibia is that there was an opportunity for me to come here and it was a fair chance for me to see if I could fit-in in a foreign league. The results have been great so far and I have no regrets of moving here. It’s obvious that I owe my success to my father and my mother who have been supportive since the beginning of my career.”

His most memorable game was against Rundu based United Stars where he notched up four beautiful goals.

“I really celebrated after that game. Last season I scored 11goals in 22 matches. I was playing as a striker and I believe before the end of the season I must score more or the same number goals even though I am now back in the midfield department,” he said.

Last season he walked away with the golden boot award as well as making part of the soccer stars of the year finalists. He also scooped the MTC player of the month award. His cabinet is well decorated with a number of medals that he amassed from cup competitions.

The Dynamos fanatic and midfield magician hinted that it was his hopes to don the Warriors jersey one day and do something great for his country.

“I have not yet represented the national team at any level. It is every players dream to play for their country of birth. I am still looking forward to that as I believe that I am currently at the best level of my career to play for the national team. I also wish to play in well known leagues such as the South African League before I make it in Europe,” Chapo said.
