Nyadombo pleased with honour

Zimbabwean central defender, Carlington Nyadombo, felt honoured when he was named Absa Premiership club Amazulu’s Player of the Month for March.


“It’s always great to be recognised for your hard work and I am happy that the club appreciates my hard work,” said Nyadombo. “That was not a personal award, but one that belongs to everyone who keeps supporting and encouraging me to always work hard. Both the technical staff and my teammates have been amazing. The award will obviously motivate me to continue working hard for this wonderful club.”

The 28-year-old, who has been skippering Usuthu in Tapuwa Kapini’s injury-induced absence, has sometimes also scored decisive goals for the Durban outfit.

Having joined Usuthu a few seasons ago, Nyadombo, teammates with countrymen Tapuwa Kapini and Brett Amidu, believed his club, currently in a top five position on the log, would maintain their top eight position to the end of the season.

“We had a bad last season, but it seems we have managed to play better this time round. We are a united front and we believe God will also guide us to much desired victory,” he added.

Usuthu assistant coach, Wilfred Mugeyi, described Nyadombo as a player of rare talent. “He is always serious at work and any coach would appreciate having his character in their team. He has the big body that helps him score goals, especially from set-pieces. You can’t just find a player like him. He is special and different,” said Mugeyi.
