Zuze assesses Monomotapa hopefuls



Castle Lager League side Monomotapa have lost close to 10 players in the off-season and they have signed just one so far.

However, club coach Biggie Zuze has been holding trials in an effort to replete his squad, and he has identified 20 players that are showing promise.

Zuze, who was given the managerial job on permanent basis after taking the team to a fourth-placed finish in the league and the final of the Mbada Diamond Cup, says he will continue to carefully assess the pool of hopefuls before deciding who to recruit.

He told supersport.com that he aims to make 10 signings from the group, as the club prepares for next season.

“We have 20 players from different areas who came for trials and we will continue to assess these players,” Zuze said.

“We need about 10 players from the group. It will take some time but we have to be careful so that at the end of the day we have the best players for the team.

“We are preparing for next season so we need to have a good squad,” added Zuze.

Monomotapa recently recruited midfielder Ishmael Lawe from relegated side Gunners. Zuz, for his efforts last term, was rewarded with a one-year contract earlier in the month.
