England-born Warriors hopeful Andy Rinomhota has been rewarded for his rapid rise at English Championship side Reading FC after signing a new contract to stay at the club until 2022.
Rinomhota is a British citizen by birth born to Zimbabwean parents and is therefore eligible to play for the Zimbabwe national team. He was born in Leeds, United Kingdom.
In a statement on the Reading FC website, manager Jose Gomes had this to say:
I am very pleased that Andy has extended his contract with us at Reading. He has drive and determination, which are fantastic assets for any footballer, and he has an excellent attitude and maturity for a young man too. He is also a big inspiration for other aspiring players at our club who can feel that there is a path from our Academy to our first team.
Reading chief executive Nigel Howe corroborated Gomes’ sentiments. He said:
Securing Andy’s services until 2022 is excellent news for Reading Football Club. He is a bright, intelligent young man who will have a fantastic future ahead of him if he keeps applying himself as he has done throughout his time at Reading.
He has risen to every challenge gallantly, and his success so far is another feather in the cap of our youth system which continues to produce top-quality talent for our senior side.
