A Zimbabwe quartet based in South Africa will get a chance to feature against a Bundesliga side in friendly matches.

Werder Bremen will tour the Southern African nation early next year where they will clash against Kaizer Chiefs and Bidvest Wits. However, the games will be played inside closed doors.

Chiefs have three Zimbabweans – Khama Billiat, Willard Katsande and Teenage Hadebe while Wits have Terrence Dzvukamanja.

Billiat is currently out of action due to a hip injury but by the time the game is played, on the 6th of January, he is expected to have recovered. This would be his second game against a European club inside eight months, having featured for his former team Mamelodi Sundowns versus Barcelona in May.

The Wits encounter is on the 11th of the month.

The statement by Werder Bremen reads: “2018 is coming to an end. Werder will begin preparation for the second half of the Bundesliga season by going on tour to South Africa (02/01/19 – 13/01/19).

“On Sunday 6th January, the Werder team will play against the Kaizer Chiefs at FC Randburg’s training ground and five days later will face BidVest Wits, who are the current leaders of the South African Premier Division (PSL). Both games will be played behind closed doors.”
