EX-Warriors defender Costa Nhamoinesu’s winning of his second Czech Cup medal after his side Sparta Prague beat FC Slovan Liberec 2-1 in the final at Stadion u Nisy in Liberec on July 1 was coupled with an academic achievement.
The towering defender is now a proud holder of a Diploma Master in Sport from Czech Republic Johan Cruyff Institute.
As if that is not enough, days before he announced his departure from a club that gave him fame and fortune, the 34-year-old former AmaZulu and Masvingo United player, was honoured for making his 200th appearance for the Czech side Sparta Prague.
“A kiss for you my Sparta family . . . Till we meet again . . . Together with Sparta for winning the cup and also winning academically! Special thanks to Cruyff Institute for this learning experience. All the youths out there especially #ghettoyouths don’t look down. No limits,” posted Nhamoinesu on Twitter.
He leaves the club with four medals, including a championship accolade, since joining the Czech Republic giants from Polish side Zaglebie Lubin in 2013.
Nhamoinesu won the league and cup double with Sparta Praha in 2014.
A year later, he finally made his Warriors debut at the age of 29, under the guidance of Kallisto Pasuwa, when Zimbabwe drew 1-1 against Guinea in a 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier at Rufaro on September 6 2015.
