Youngsters headed to Spain for trials



European doors are opening for young Zimbabwean players as three of them – 19-year-old Leo Mhinga, MacAlford Madovi and Previledge Chatora (both 20) will be at RDC Espanyol in Barcelona.

The players are accompanied by coach Richard Soloba, who said that they are good players and they could make it in Spain.

Soloba told Supersport.com that they have had a few challenges to get the players to Spain, but now that they are set to travel to the country and take part, they will try their best in the field of play.

“It is great that we finally got the visas and the players can travel to Spain. There are going to be many players from all over the world,” he said.

“We are not talking about them signing for Espanyol right now. We are talking about the players trying their luck in Europe and this is the first step for them.

“I know the players know how important these trials are for them and the Zimbabwe nation in general. We wish the players all the best as they go through the trials,” Soloba said.
