ESWATINI national team and Mbabane Highlanders free scoring right wingback, Sabelo Gamedze has expressed his dream of taste of Zimbabwe football after being inspired by the coaching touch of his former Matsapha United coach Saul Chaminuka.
In an interview this week, Gamedze said the brief exposure had cultivated an interest to play in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League as one of the future challenges.
“Playing in a foreign is one dream almost every player dreams of at any time and for me Zimbabwe is one of my many desired destinations I will not mind joining. Should such an opportunity present itself I will not even blink before taking it.
“I have played against Zimbabwe at the junior level and senior level and also coached by several Zimbabwe coaches in my career something that has cultivated an interest in me to play in the Zimbabwe league one day.
“As a player I believe such an exposure will also help diversify my game adding a variety to the tactical aspects of the game. I have also played together with Zimbabwe players at Matsapha United and Manzini Sundowns hence it will be easy for me to adapt,” said Gamedze.
The player who turns 27 at the end of year said he was now mature to settle in a foreign league such as Zimbabwe.
Known for his goal from range in 2018 when Eswatini lost 1-4 in the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Gamedze played together with Hloniphani Ndebele and Marshall Machazane st Mbabane Highlanders before joining Knowledge Jim at Manzini Sundowns.
