Zimbabwe international footballer Marshall Munetsi admits he’s relishing the opportunity of UEFA football next season after signing a new lucrative contract with French Ligue 1 side Stade de Reims.
The 23-year-old said that he enjoyed his first season in France and is happy with the way the club finished in the league. Munetsi explained:
I really enjoyed my first season in Ligue 1, everything was amazing but obviously there was a lot of work and improvement I had to do from my side.
A lot of listening to the coaches, extra training, personalised training to learn and to adjust to certain aspects that are required in France.
I enjoyed learning from the coaches and players around me [this season] and happy with the way we finished in the league.
It’s always been a dream of mine to play in the UEFA Champions League [and Europa]. But, for now, the main focus to look at what is happening in the world and when the time comes, we will be able to do what we do best.
I’m really thankful for the way things have gone and to the club to give me a big platform to showcase my talent.
Reims qualified for the UEFA Europa League after finishing sixth on the log.
Munetsi joined Reims in July last year on a free transfer after the expiry of his contract at South African side Orlando Pirates.
He featured in 21 games for the French top-flight outfit across all competitions during the 2019/20 season while registering two assists.
