THE Warriors’ 2021 AFCON preparations have been dealt a huge blow after star midfielder, Marshal Munetsi, was ruled out of the tournament, due to injury.
Munetsi will be out for 10 weeks and it means he will not be able to recover in time to play at Africa’s biggest football showcase.

He sustained the injury on Wednesday, when his Stade Reims side beat Tino Kadewere’s Lyon, in a France Ligue 1 match.

Munetsi lasted only 45 minutes before injury struck.

The Stade Reims midfielder spoke about the devastation of missing the tournament.

‘’It’s a sad feeling, obviously, having prepared and worked hard, to be playing in such big tournaments, and representing my country,’’ said Munetsi.

“And, it’s also difficult to be missing out on playing for my club, and it’s some sad news for me, as it’s the first time, in my career, l have had such an injury.

“It’s a huge blow, personally for me, as l had made some huge strides in developing as a player.

‘’But, such situations are always a possibility, when you are involved in sports.

“l will be cheering the guys, when they go to represent the nation, in Cameroon.’’

He rallied the team to represent the country well in Cameroon.

“All l can say to them is that they should enjoy the moment, make a name for themselves, as such tournaments always have a way of changing people’s lives.

“It’s sad that I won’t be part of them but I will be rallying behind them.

“I know what they can do and what they’re capable of doing, I just want to wish them the best.”
