Marvelous Nakamba has revealed that he always get tips before and after the games from former Warriors captains Peter Ndlovu and Benjani Mwaruwari who both played in the EPL.

The midfielder moved to England in the pre-season and has become a first team regular in the top-flight side Aston Villa.

“All this wouldn’t have been possible had it not been for the support I am getting from Zimbabwean football legends Peter (Ndlovu) and Mwaruwari,” Nakamba told the Sunday Mail.

“I speak a lot with them, they send me messages after matches, sometimes before crucial matches, giving me tips.

“They have been there for me, Zimbabwean fans have been there for me. Africa has also been behind me and I am grateful.”

Nakamba also revealed that he once got some plaudits from some Manchester City players when his side lost 0-3 at the Etihad on October 26.

The Zimbabwean has been outstanding in almost every game he has played and picked up the club’s Man of the Match accolade on a number of occasions.

“Those guys are real professionals, they will tell you their mind. After the Man City game, the City players were telling me I had a good game. I was humbled, he said.”
