Writing on her Facebook Wall, the young footballer’s mother Tsungi Chiwara went: “Please help me thank the Lord and extend a MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS to our son Kudzo for joining his new home, Alcorcon, in Madrid, Spain.”
She added: “To God be the glory! I am beyond proud of my beloved son, for the person who he is and for his brilliant start to his professional football career. He inspires me with his faith in God, sound character, work ethic, discipline, resilience, grit and sheer passion for football. This is only the beginning – the only way is up.”
