Samakwere ready to quit Mazembe


Exciting Zimbabwe winger Chris Samakwere is ready to call time on his career at two-time African Champions TP Mazembe should his spell on the sidelines continue into the forthcoming season.

Samakwere, who is back home for the festive season, has struggled to break into the Mazembe starting line-up despite his undoubted talent.

He told this week that several South African clubs were interested in his services and he would soon be weighing his options.

“I will be going back to Mazembe for the new season and see what it holds for me.

“If I can’t get more game time then I will have to take one of the many options available to me because I am still young and I can only improve by playing.

“I had a fairly good experience in my first season at Mazembe. At least I managed to make a few appearances for them in the Champions League, starting one game.

“But most of the time I was coming on as a late second half substitute,” said the skillful forward who was a member of Zimbabwe’s Cosafa Cup winning squad last year.The 22-year-old joined Mazembe after playing for local side Monomotapa in the 2009 Africa Champions League.

Three other Monomotapa players were also recruited by the African giants, namely strikers Daryl Nyandoro and Daniel Zokoto as well as defensive linkman Mthulisi Maposa. All have however struggled to make an impact at a star-studded Mazembe side.
