The inclussion of Knowledge Musona in the Warriors provisional squad for the two AFCON 2021 Group H qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia has generated a lot of debate in the local football arena.
Musona, who has not featured for his Belgian side RSC Anderlecht or at least appear in the match day squad this season under two different coaches, was included by interim coach Joey Antipas in the squad, which came as somewhat a surprise to many considering his lack of both game time and match fitness.
The man whom many credit for Musona’s success as a player, Aces Youth Academy Director and coach, Marc Duvillard, belives the decision to include the 29-year-old in the Warriors setup, is a weird one.
“Maybe he has been called because he is the captain, maybe he will be on the bench and come in and play 20 minutes or so,” Duvillard told The Sunday Mail.
“To put him in the starting eleven might not help. Psychologically, he is not in a good condition. His club coach says he doesn’t want him. One moment he goes on loan, he comes back and says he will fight for the jersey but still he doesn’t play.”
“He has a lot of confusion,” he added.
