ZIMBABWEAN player Tanaka Chinyahara, who recently joined the Zambian top-flight side Red Arrows, is over the moon after settling for a one-year-six-month contract.
Chinyahara put pen to paper on Thursday last week.
He joined as a free agent after the expiry of his contract with the South Africa National Division side Witbank Spurs had expired.
The young midfielder said his Zambian move is a great indication that his career is growing.
The move has left Chinyahara dreaming big.
“I am super excited to be here in Zambia, Red Arrows is my first top-flight team and I can’t wait to show case what I have got.
“I never played in Zimbabwe, I once tried my luck at Dynamos but I didn’t impress, I have played in Denmark and South Africa but they were both second tier league teams.
“Red Arrows is really a milestone and I will use this opportunity to make sure my career keeps going forward,” he said.
He said he will take advantage of his new base to market himself to bigger and better leagues.
“Zambian football is always on television and therefore I am going to play each game with all my effort because you never know who is watching.
“From what I have seen here in Zambia so far, I am seeing more positives than negatives. It’s a good league.
“This should be our second home, other players should come and try their luck here because they will have better chances.
“Our players should try and join teams from this side because they will have better chances to market themselves to other leagues,” he added.
Chinyahara encouraged fellow Zimbabwean footballers to try the Zambia league if they are keen to better their careers.
Red Arrows are currently eighth on the standings with 24 points from 18 games.
