Munditi stars in Mutare Premiership charge

Former Chemhanza Secondary School goalkeeper, Tatenda Munditi, 17, is playing a starring role in Mutare City Rovers’ charge for a ticket to the Premiership.

The gangling goal-minder has made a seamless transition from secondary school football to the competitive version of the game, after he seized the Number One jersey at the beginning of the season.

Mutare City team manager, Lyndon Kanyemba, was convinced Munditi deserved to be considered for the Under-23 national team that is set to begin preparations for the Olympic Games and All-Africa Games qualifiers.

“He has matured much faster than we had anticipated because we had only registered him as one of our junior players… But he immediately overtook the goalkeeper who had been our first choice for the past two seasons,” said Kanyemba.

“Of course he is still young and developing. He was playing secondary school football only last year, but on current form, I have no doubt that he can do a good job for the Under-20s and even the Under-23 team.”

Munditi first hogged the limelight when he was voted goalkeeper of the tournament at the 2013 COPA Coca-Cola international camp held in South Africa. He also went to Brazil during the World Cup in June, as part of the All-Stars Copa Coca-Cola Africa team.
