Zim star Chibharo's Man City golden chance

Zim star Chibharo"s Man City golden chance
After former Zimbabwe national team ( the Warriors) captain Benjamin Mwaruwari, another Zimbabwe-born football star has a chance to don Manchester City first team national team shirt. That player is Tinotenda Chibharo, who has just become the Citizens' Under 21 captain.

As of early August, young Chibharo was appointed Manchester City's Under 21 team captain, just a mere six months after having joined the Citizens' Under 21 team in February, from college football in the United States of America where he turned out for Winthrop University.

Chibharo had arrived in the US on a sports scholarship in 2009, and was enrolled at Winthrop University in the US to study towards a Business Administration degree.

Manchester City scouts spotted him playing for his University and they were impressed by the skills and abilities of the former Prince Edward High School and the famed Aces Youth Academy central midfielder.

Chibharo was offered a two week trial at the Etihad Stadium, and it only took a week before Manchester City signed him in February 2012. The move meant that Tonny (for Tinotenda) had to abandon his degree studies and focus solely on his football career.

The new Man City Under 21 captain is not supposed to be exactly new to Zimbabwean football fans, even though his name might sound unfamiliar to most readers.

Apart from playing for the Aces Academy with the likes of Khama Billiat, Knowledge Musona, Lincoln Zvasiya and the likes of Brian Amidu, Chibharo was also a member of the Zimbabwe Under 17 and Under 20 youth teams.

He has also played for other lower division clubs in the past.

I am from Harare but I joined Masvingo United from Maningi FC which had
become bankrupt. I would travel to Masvingo every Thursday after school
to be with the team for weekend matches, Chibharo recently told the Zimbabwe Mail online.


Because not much attention and recognition has been given to youth national teams by football administrators in Zimbabwe, the fans have not been able to see much of these talented youngsters in action.

Beezsports.com has tried to profile the upcoming youngsters who are currently based in the UK and are doing well for their clubs. Unfortunately, due to poor organisation and the perennial challenges of funding at ZIFA, these youngsters have not been given a chance to come and play for their country during continental competitions.

Beezsports readers can look-out for an interview with this Zimbabwean football prodigy between this week and next week.
