Pfumbidzai prays for the best

Ronald Pfumbidzai dribbles past Cameroon player Mougang Bassogog in some of the action between the Young Warriors and Cameroon at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.

CAPS United left-back Ronald Pfumbidzai says he is hoping for the best after training alone on his first day at Danish top-flight football side Hobro IK under the supervision of the coach yesterday.


The Zimbabwe youth international is expected to train under the supervision of the fitness trainer this morning before joining fellow team mates in the afternoon session.

He also said he has received support from former Motor Action forward Quincy Antipas who is already on the books of the club.

“I trained at 10am alone under the supervision of the coach. Tomorrow (today), I am going to train with the team in the afternoon, but in the morning, I am going to train alone under the guidance of the fitness trainer. It’s a good experience for me, but for the weather, it was raining and very cold. I will get used to it. I will be here for two weeks, so am just hoping for the best. He (Quincy) is always there for me telling me not to be afraid, but to just listen to the coach,” Pfumbidzai told NewsDay Sport yesterday.

Hobro IK are currently on seventh position on the league table with 38 points with leaders Midtjylland on 64 points from 27 matches of the campaign.

The club started playing their first ever season in the Danish super league in 2014-15 season following their promotion.

The Caps United full-back has also had trials with South African Premiership giants Kaizer Chiefs, but could not be signed as the transfer window had already closed by then.

And should he make the grade at Hobro IK, he will play alongside Antipas who has also played for SønderjyskE and Brondby in that country.

Antipas also played in Morocco, after stints with Motor Action and Caps United.

Another Zimbabwean, former Harare City forward Silas Songani, also plays his club football in Denmark, turning out for SønderjyskE. Songani has been there since January 2014.
