ZIMBABWE international defender, Jordan Zemura is hoping to build on an impressive 45 minutes last weekend on his Italian Serie A debut for Udinese.

The 23-year-old leftback became the first Zimbabwean player to feature in the Serie A.

He could be thrown into the Starting XI when his team travel to face Salernitana for their Match Day Two encounter at the Stadio Arechi tonight.

The match kicks off at 6:30pm.

“What’s important for me, I think is to play well and help the team achieve their targets,” Zemura told Zimpapers Sport.

“I am very happy to see my market value gaining so much. But all this doesn’t matter if I do not show up for the team.

“I am not representing only myself in Italy, I am representing my country as well.

“So I have to really put in the work and pave the way for more Zimbabweans to come and play in Italy.”

He added:

“I am very happy to be the first Zimbabwean playing here and it’s actually a huge responsibility that I am carrying.

“The secret, I think is to play well and make sure I have an impact.

“Our next match is a trip to Salernitana and it’s a tough game. I can’t say much but I will throw everything into it should I get minutes.”
