France-bound Warriors defender-cum-midfielder, Marshall Munetsi has heaped praise on coach Sunday Chidzambga for granting him the opportunity to play for the national team.
Munetsi recently signed a four-year contract with French League 1 side Stade de Reims. He said:
Coach Sunday is a father figure first of all. He takes care of everyone, and not looking at where you come from or your background.
He is a person who talks to players personally, trying to improve our game and giving us the platform to play.
He gave me this opportunity to play for the national team, and I have done my best not to let him down.
Munetsi said that the current group of Warriors can move further in the Africa Cup of Nations, unlike during in the previous times that they qualified. He added:
Firstly, the difference is the coach, we have a coach who has the experience, who has qualified for the Afcon before and he is the coach that knows how to defend.
He is a coach that knows how to put a proper structure, so we have a balanced team this time around and we know what we have to rectify from what happened in the previous tournament.
