Joey Antipas has revealed his desire to have Highlanders defender Peter Muduhwa in his Chicken Inn squad next season as the coach seeks to reinforce his side during this off-season break.

The Gamecocks finished the 2018 campaign third on the table behind champions FC Platinum and runners-up Ngezi Platinum Stars.

In an interview with the Chronicle, Antipas said: “Some of the players are in the twilights of their careers, so we have to add more firepower. By firepower, I mean a couple of more youthful players. Football is about fighting, so we need to bring in fighters.

“Areas of much concern are the wingers, we don’t have much depth on the flanks and also bring in a quality centre back like Peter Muduhwa, I think it will be ok.”

The current Chicken Inn squad has several old horses which include 37-year-old central defender Moses Jackson, midfielder Clemence Matawu who turned 36 on Thursday, striker Obadiah Tarumbwa (33), defender Ben Nyahunzwi and central midfielders Simon Munawa and Guide Goddard (30).

Meanwhile, Muduhwa, whose contract with Highlanders expires on December 31 is also on the ambitious Ngezi Platinum Stars’ radar.
