Aces here to stay: Mwanjali

Former national team defender Method Mwanjali said this week that he was happy with his “drop” from cash-rich Mamelodi Sundowns to lowly Mpumalanga Black Aces.

He vowed the side would make a great impact in their Absa Premiership return season.

Mwanjali told The Zimbabwean, “We take one game at a time and our main target is to avoid relegation. Everyone is happy and committed to that cause and I can boldly say we will end in the Top8.

“I have found a new home and the determination and spirit of the players in the team has really lifted my game. I’m ready to fight on and lead by example. We are enjoying ourselves and remain united as one big family.”

Mwanjali played for Mamelodi Sundowns, who he captained for some time, before he signed for Aces at the start of this season and was immediately made team captain. He enjoyed working with 1996 Afcon winning coach, Clive Barker.

“In a short space of time with him, I have learned a lot of football tricks and I believe he will take us even higher,” said Mwanjali.

Other Zimbabweans playing for Aces are former national team goalkeeper Energy Murambadoro and striker Tendai Ndoro.
