Warriors prospect Andy Rinomhota made his full debut on Saturday for Reading which plays in England’s Championship.
The 21-year-old didn’t disappoint as he turned in a man-of-the-match display to help his side to a much-needed 3-2 win over Bristol City. It was the midfielder’s first start in the senior team but just his third league appearance in total after coming through the club’s academy.
Rinomhota’s performance has earned him praise from his coach, Paul Clement.
“He (Andy) played really well,” said Clement, according to Football.London website.
“He’s had to be patient for his opportunity and he has been. But he’s a fantastic professional and every day he is really committed to learning and improving and giving his best.”
Rinomhota was born in Leeds, UK to a Zimbabwean father which makes him eligible to play for the national team. He is among the foreign-born players being targeted by Zifa and was named in Zimbabwe’s provisional squad for the 2018 COSAFA Cup.
However, the player was dropped as he required a local passport which he is yet to acquire.
