WARRIORS centre back Teenage Hadebe reckons they still have a lot to learn from senior national team skipper Knowledge Musona before he retires from international football.
After a dismal Warriors performance at the Afcon finals in Cameroon that saw the country’s flagship side post two back-to-back loses to Senegal and Malawi and a single victory, rumours have it that Musona (31) is contemplating calling it quits and concentrate on his club duties.
“It’s unfortunate that we once again bowed out at the Afcon group stages.
I believe it is still a learning curve for most of us hence we still need the services of our team captain Knowledge Musona.
He is a great motivator and experienced player that has done a lot for the country hence the need to see him continue doing duty for the country.
We are set to engage in the 2023 Afcon qualifiers and I believe we still need to have Musona around us,” said Hadebe in an interview from Yaoundé, Cameroon.
Hadebe, who turns out for Houston Dynamo in the United States of America (USA), was the Warriors vice-captain at the 2021 Afcon finals a development he said titivated up his confidence ahead of Warriors future assignments.
“It was very much pleasing for me to put on the Warriors armband when we played against Sudan and Senegal.
It’s everyone’s wish to lead the senior national team.
However, Musona is still our leader, a quality leader that everyone in the team respects,” said the ex-Highlanders, Chicken Inn and Bantu Rovers defender.
