Zim teen training with Leicester City senior team

Zimbabwean teenager Tawanda Maswanhise is among the four youngsters that have been training with Leicester City’s senior team in the past week.

The 18-year old, who was born in England to Zimbabwean parents, featured in a friendly match against Burton Albion on Saturday and managed to pull a decent performance. He started in the game and linked well with James Madison on the right flank before coach Brendan Rodgers brought in a different XI during the halftime.

Maswanhise’s involvement in the senior squad follows after he signed a new contract last month.

The attacker was a standout for the club’s under-18s in the previous season and caught the eye of Rodgers towards the end of the campaign. He made his debut appearance in the first team squad in May in a league match against Manchester United.
