Zimbabwe Warriors’ captain, Knowledge Musona has resumed training with his Belgian Pro League club KAS Eupen after being sidelined since January due to a knee injury.
Musona is expected to feature for his club when they travel to Sint-Truiden VV today.
His return brings joy to Warriors coach Zdravko Logarusic who announced his provisional squad for the Afcon qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia in the last week of next month.
KAS Eupen coach Benat San Jose expressed his delight on Friday after revealing that the Zimbabwe international had fully recovered from the knee injury after resuming training last week.
Speaking during a pre-match press conference yesterday, the 41-year-old Spanish coach could not hide his excitement over Musona’s imminent return. He said:
He is training very well and it bodes well for the future. He is a special and important player. He also brings so much more in attack. His return is good news.
San Jose also declared that his charges would be aiming to collect all three points against Sint-Truiden VV.
Musona last featured for KAS Eupen in their 4-1 away defeat against Genk on January 6 when he was substituted just 30 minutes into the match due to injury after being involved in a collision with Genk goalkeeper Danny Vukovic.
His absence in the Eupen lineup has been felt with the Belgian club winning just two of their last eight league matches while he has been away.
Musona has for years now been one of the players which Zimbabwe has banked on and he was impressive in the last AFCON match against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.
