Zendera praised

Former Warriors and Amazulu defender, Golding Dube, has praised Swazi-based goalkeeper Pride Zendere.

Dube, who coached the 22-year-old at Manzini Sundowns, where Zendere still plays, described him as one for the future and called on national selectors to consider the goalkeeper for national duty.

Zendera is rated the number one goalkeeper in the Sawzi PSL, after his countryman Ephraim Mazarura left and has proven himself to be an asset at Sundowns.

“We should not wait for a coach from Mars to tell us that Zendere deserves to be in the Warriors squad,” said Dube. “I have seen the boy and worked with him for seasons. He is a rare talent and could be the best goalkeeper our country has now. Our national selectors should therefore, cast their net wider and give him a call-up. It is players like him that will take our game back to the top.”

Dube recently returned home, after he spent some seasons at the helm of Manzini Sundowns, where two other Zimbabweans, Jimmy Knowledge and Elias Tsabalaka are also plying their trade.

“I am currently on holiday; I didn’t renew my contract with Sundowns as I want to focus on my studies. I have managed to get certificates like Advance in Caf C licence, Caf B licence and a Diploma in Sports Club Management from Boston College. I am currently aiming at completing a Diploma in Sports Administration and Management,” he said.
