Former Warriors skipper and gunman Benjani Mwaruwari has played for many teams in his career both local and abroad but he has revealed to B-Metro that his favourite is Manchester City.
The Undertaker as he is affectionately known, had a spell with Air Zimbabwe Jets, Jomo Cosmos (South African) Auxerre of France, Portsmouth and Manchester City both from England.
Speaking on the sidelines of the launch of his Benjani Community Youth League, he said in all the teams that he played for, his most outstanding is Manchester City, a club which made him a strong force on the international football scene.
“I have played for many teams in my career and they are all great on different levels. I have played for Jomo Cosmos and I had a great time there and I still support the club.
“I moved to England and played there as well for Portsmouth and Manchester City and all these teams are great to me as they were highlights of my career.
“However, from all the teams, I obviously support the most winning team in the Premier League (PL) which is none other than The Citizens (Manchester City),” said Mwaruwari.
Launched on 17 December, the Benjani Community Youth League is aimed at making use of Bulawayo City Council youth centres in developing junior football.
Magwegwe City which birthed Mwaruwari’s football career was unveiled as the first team that will participate in the league.
The unveiling of the tournament that will see the search for a new and young Benjani was graced by some of the country’s finest footballers.
Bulawayo Mayor Solomon Mguni, senior officials from the Ministry of Youth, Sport, Arts and recreation, national team’s general manager Wellington Mpandare and suspended ZIFA vice president Gift Banda were among the guests in attendance.
The league attracted corporate appeal with Adachi International injecting US$50 000 towards the project.
