Kuwadzana Member of Parliament Nelson Chamisa over the weekend said football leaders should focus on developing junior football.
Chamisa said football fosters unity among Zimbabweans.
“In government we have realised how important sport is and I assure you that I will to speak to Sports minister (David Coltart) to help in developing junior football in high-density suburbs. This is where talent is in abundance. We have future national teams here,” he said.
“This is just the beginning of great things to come and people should take soccer seriously because one can make a living out of it,” he said.
The tournament that was held in Kuwadzana saw winners pocketing $200 while losers went home $100 richer.
“We are tired of wiping tears after our beloved Warriors lose and therefore we have to plan for the future,” quipped Chamisa.
