Benjani’s Son Using Father As An Inspiration

Former Warriors striker Benjani Mwaruwari’s son, Benjani Junior, said he is aiming to scale greater heights in football.

Mwaruwari, now 14, is already on the books of English club Portsmouth FC, a club his father once played for. Said the youngster:

My father has played a pivotal role in my soccer career. He dedicates his spare time to teach me how to use my left foot since I use my right, what to do with a soccer ball on the first touch, and how to time my speed when I’m having a ball and how to effectively use my head to score. That has worked in my favour because I won accolades for being the best striker at my school.

Benjani Senior started his football career at Young Blood, then joined Highlanders Football Club juniors before moving to Lulu Rovers Football Club and eventually Air Zimbabwe Jets.

He went on to play for several clubs outside Zimbabwe including Jomo Cosmos in South Africa, AJ Auxerre of France, and Manchester City of England.

He played alongside football greats such as Nwanku Kanu, Robinho, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Sol Campbell, Djibril Cisse and Kalilou Fadiga.
