Matawu joins top Polish club


National soccer team midfielder and former Soccer Star of the Year Clemence Matawu has joined top Polish side Polonia Bytom.
The ex-Motor Action front man joins the Polska Liga club from a lower division side, Podbeskidzie Bielsko Biala. He signed a three-year contract with Bytom and has already featured for the team in two games.
Described as a “fast and agile midfielder”, Matawu is known to run rings around opponents with pace and precision. The former Mighty Bulls player was recently named in Zimbabwe’s side which will face Liberia in the 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifier match on September 4.
Speaking from his base, Matawu said he was happy to be at Polonia Bytom as well as at being called up by Warriors caretaker coach Norman Mapeza.
“I’m excited that I have moved to a new club. The good thing is that the team plays in the top-flight league. It took some time for the move to materialise, but I’m now settled.
“I’m also happy that coach Mapeza called me for the Liberia game. I will give the best for my country. It is an honour to play for your country,” said Matawu.
Polonia was founded in 1920 and its stadium has a 15 000-seat capacity. Since its formation, the team based in the Upper Silesian city of Bytom, has won the championship twice in 1952 and 1962.
Matawu is the only African player at the club and his deal was facilitated by former Darryn T and Zimbabwe youth coach Wieslaw Grabowski.
