Ramson Zhuwawo on trial at Vasco in SA

The reigning Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League footballer of the year Ramson Zhuwawo is currently on trial with newly promoted South African PSL team Vasco da Gama of Cape Town.

Zhuwawo arrived over the past week at the Cape Town based club in a bid to try and impress the Vasco technical team and win a professional contract from the beginning of the 2010/2011 season.

The Warriors' midfielder is one of the many trialists at the Cape Town Northern Surburbs-based team. He has joined other players at the Vasco trial period from Carara Kicks in the First division, namely Tshepo Tomanyane and Kabelo Rapulane. Kingston Nkatha, a Zimbabwean international was loaned to Carara Kicks two seasons ago before rejoining his PSL team Free State Stars, now coached by former Zimbabwe national team coach Sunday Chidzambwa.

No decision has been made on whether the PSL debutants will sign Zhuwawo, even though indications are that he has already impressed the technical team.

"We haven't made a decision on him but so far he looks a very nice player. We are currently looking at a number of players and we have to be careful that we sign good players not just a name," Vasco coach Carlos Das Neves told Kick-Off from his Cape Town base.

The Gunners FC captain Zhuwawo is expected to win a contract at Vasco given his international experience and the form he showed for his club in the Champions League and the Warriors whom he helped qualify for the African Championship of Nations (CHAN) tournament to be held in Sudan.  

Many fanatic Warriors supporters will question the wisdom of such a talented player like Zhuwawo in choosing to go for a trial with a lowly PSL team in South Africa instead of the big boys of the league such as Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates or Sundowns, or even go to Europe. Some will even argue that on current form, Zhuwawo is considered a better player in his homeland than the likes of Nyasha Mushekwi, Method Mwanjali and Lionel Mtizwa who did not need a trial period to sign for Mamelodi Sundowns for big bucks.

The reality of the matter is that a player's worth and real value these days is determined by factors other than his genuine talent. The club who owns the players' rights and agents handling the affairs of players contribute to the perceived value of the players. Mushekwi and Mwanjali were probably Zimbabwe's best locally-based players in terms of their importance to the Warriors. However on form, Zhuwawo was adjudged to be the cream of the crop, yet he is now fighting to get recognition at a lowly club. This is how strange the story of player movements and sales can be sometimes.
