Former Warriors coach Klaus-Dieter Pagels has commented on Denver Mukamba’s career which has been marred by many setbacks.

Mukamba was part of Pagels’ new-look national team squad in 2011 and was handed the role to captain the side when he was only 20 years.

The midfielder, however, failed to maintain his constant rise and faced several disciplinary issues which cut short his time in the ABSA Premiership.

In an interview with The Herald, the coach said: “Everybody is different. I read in the newspapers about Denver and his problems.

‘‘He was one of the most talented players of his age. To push his self-confidence, I gave him the captain’s armband.

‘‘He took this very seriously and was proud. He performed very well. I hope he is well now and enjoys life.’’

Mukamba who was named the 2012 Soccer Star of the Year recently returned to action after spending six months without a club.

He joined Chapungu in June and seems to be settled after making an immediate impact on his arrival.
