FORMER Warriors Defender, Costa Nhamoinesu believes he still has what it takes to play at the highest level after leaving his Czech club Sparta Prague.
With his footballing career now at its twilight considering that he is 34, the dreadlocked former Warriors Defender who has just left Sparta Prague after seven years says he is not yet done.
Having recently attained legend status at his former club after 200 appearances and completing a Diploma in Sports Management at the Johan Cruyff Institute, Nhamoinesu’s future still looks bright.
In an interview with ZBC News, Nhamoinesu expressed his desire to continue playing football.
“For now I would say that I feel strong enough. I still believe in myself and another chukka ended with Sparta Prague after a long time. I still believe that there could be some opening and I could still continue to play,” said Nhamoinesu.
While he could not be drawn to comment on a possible return to play for the Zimbabwe senior national team, Nhamhoinesu highlighted that he still believes he has a role to play in the local game whether as a Warriors player or in another role.
“So that I’m not with the Warriors right now, I don’t want to say it like that because I feel that I still represent my nation in any way wherever I am. I am part of the Warriors. So what happens in the future we don’t know. All we know is that I represent the Warriors,” he said.
Nhamoinesu called time on his stint with the Warriors but has made his intentions of setting up a junior developmental platform back home clear.
Besides featuring in the European competitions with Sparta Prague, Nhamoinesu’s other accolades include lifting the Czech Cup, the league title in the 2013-14 season, and winning the Czech Super Cup in 2014.
