… You have been nominated for our ‘Team of the Century’, which, I am confident, you will consider as a great honour.
In accepting the honour bestowed upon him, Chunga said:
It’s amazing that the story never ends and that’s what happens when you have a truly professional set-up because history will always be considered very important at such institutions because it helped shape what they are today.
Bambo became the first in-field Zimbabwean footballer, after Independence, to move to a European club.
This was during a time when it was difficult for African players to find clubs in Europe.
