Speaking to NewsDay, Warriors captain Willard Katsande said contrary to the reports that he has quit international football he is still considering his future in international football following the team’s early exit at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals taking place in Gabon.
I have read reports that I have quit international football, but somebody decided to put words into my mouth. I still need to go back and sit down and have a debrief. I also need to consult a few people before I make any decision. What is important is to see how I can help the younger players grow into the national team and take over. I think we still need to rub on to the next group of players the experience that we have gained from this Afcon final. Zimbabwe needs to be a regular at these finals and we need to be a dominant force. With this in mind, I will have to consult on how I can help before I make any decision. Having played for the Warriors since 2009, I have gained a lot of experience. So when I decide to step down there needs to be some form of continuity.
