MARSHALL Munetsi says he was honoured to be invited to the FIFA Awards held at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris, France, on Monday.

The Stade Reims midfielder said it enabled him to mingle with various football stars.

In an interview with H-Metro, Munetsi said:

“It was such an honour to be invited by FIFPro to witness the amazing ceremony and interact with some of the best to ever play the game and also meet some people who have a big influence in how the game is managed globally.

“Meeting players like Virgil van Dijk, who l really like a lot, was something for me.

“l was also privileged to meet some FIFA officials, who shed a bit of light on the current situation of our national team.

“There are a lot of things I learnt from the awards that l will pass on to upcoming footballers.”

Munetsi was appointed into the FIFPro Global Player Council in January.

The panel is made up of 34 active players with international experience from around the world.

According to FIFPro, the council is made up of members with demonstrated leadership qualities to raise any issues they have.

Its main objective is to ensure views from both the men’s and women’s football and different leagues from around the world are heard.
