Talent feels at home at Usuthu


Talent Chawapihwa has quickly adapted to life at AmaZulu since moving to the club from Baroka in the January transfer window.

It’s been a good couple of weeks for the speedy Zimbabwean winger who netted his first goal for the club albeit in a losing cause against Free State Stars recently.

He was also part of the Warriors team which secured qualification for AFCON 2019, beating Congo at home in the final group game of the campaign last weekend.

“I have settled in well since I came here,” Chawapihwa said.

“Everything has been good, the technical team, the players, the supporters, all make me feel like I am at home.”

“It felt good to score even though we lost. It gives me more confidence in font of goal,” he added.

Chawapihwa was alongside fellow Usuthu team mates at the National Stadium, Buthu Ncube and Ovidy Karuru as Zimbabwe qualified for the continental competition that will take place in Egypt between June and July.

“It means a lot to us. It is good thing to make the nation happy, it is something that we needed,” Chawapihwa said.

Next up for Cavin Johnson’s side is a clash against Chippa United in Umlazi on 6 April.

“We need the points, it is a crucial time of the league, every point means a lot as we are chasing a top-eight finish,” Chawapihwa said.

“Chippa play a good passing game but so do we, it will come down to who wants it more on the day,” he concluded.
