MURWIRA DOING WELL IN CHANGED ROLE

Tadious Manyepo-Sports Reporter

GODKNOWS MURWIRA has hardly played in central defence since making his Premiership debut with Monomotapa over a decade ago.

The CAPS United skipper has made waves in the league as a right-back.

But, he was switched to the heart of defence at Makepekepe this season after coach Lloyd Chitembwe decided to move him deeper where he is mostly partnering Hastings Chapusha.

The 31-year-old has done well.

 “Godknows (Murwira) is one of the best players around and his versatility is second to none. He plays well no matter the position he is asked to fill,” said Chitembwe.

 “I am very happy with what he is giving us as a team and I should say the other players we have at CAPS United are also doing very well.

 “Murwira has played as a right sided defender and now he is giving us a lot in central defence. His work ethic is up there and he is a real marvel.”

Murwira said:

“It was kind of strange to play as a CB at first. I wasn’t really sure if I would acquaint myself well in that position in a short period of time.

“But, my coaches worked with me every day during the off-season for me to understand the role. They really helped me a lot. 

“My teammates have also played a big part in my settling in the role.

 “They have been very supportive and that has really worked out for me. They have also been backing me and it has been very easy for me in leading the group. I can say I have adjusted very well.”

The Green Machine have been inconsistent but are just six points adrift of the leaders.

 “It’s not the perfect start that we were all looking forward to. But we still have time to improve our showing and be the CAPS United everyone wants to see.

“We want to be a competitive team and we have the personnel to drive the dream. We want to do it for our fans.”
