HIGHLANDERS midfielder Peter “Rio” Moyo has impressed top Zimbabwe football agent Ralph Nkomo.
Nkomo, who represents a number of Zimbabwean players, is closely following proceedings at the ongoing African Nations Championships. He said the Warriors started on a low note, but as the tournament progressed they have been fantastic.
“I have been impressed mostly by Zimbabwean players. There are lots of good players. They are fantastic. I think they stand a good chance of reaching the final. Players like Kuda Mahachi, Partson Jaure, Hardlife Zvirekwi and the goalkeeper George Chigova. But there is one player I didn’t know — Peter Moyo. His application is unbelievable. He is technically gifted, but I didn’t see the recognition. He is one of the best players in Zimbabwe,” Nkomo said.
Nkomo represents the likes of former Warriors captain Benjani Mwaruwari, KV Oostende of Belgium striker Nyasha Mushekwi and Bidvest Wits leftback Onisimor Bhasera. Player agents representing several South African teams are reportedly searching for talent in the Warriors camp.
Zimbabwean players have won the admiration of neutrals with their performance at the continental tournament where they have defied odds stacked against them to qualify for the quarter finals of the tournament after beating Burkina Faso and Mali to reach the semi-finals of the tournament designed exclusively for home-based players since its inauguration in 2009.
The Warriors will now face Libya tomorrow in a battle for the right to reach the final of the tournament.
Already, Mahachi has agreed terms with Mamelodi Sundowns.
