Addressing journalists in Lusaka, Zambia, on Monday ahead of a tricky 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chipolopolo on Tuesday, Antipas said:
It’s just a matter of time before he delivers for us.
[Musona] he could not be playing regularly for the first team at but he is training regularly and he is playing games regularly for the reserve side.
Although he has been criticised, even us as coaches have been criticised for starting him because of lack of game time, but we know that he can deliver and he retains the captaincy of the team.
Musona has not kicked a ball in anger in any competitive match for his Belgian club, Anderlecht this season.
His performances have been considered below par since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in held in Egypt earlier this year.
