Katsande And Malajila Speaks On Recent Warriors Ban

Willard Katsande and his former Warriors vice captain Cuthbert Malajila have opened up about their recent ban from the national team by ZIFA boss, Phillip Chiyangwa on Monday 22 May, saying although it is hard to accept, but they respect the association's decesion.

"Its painful bro, but with time I will heal," said Katsande speaking to Soca263 senior editor Alex Majoka.

"If it was a popular rule, the decesion would have been different. I have the full support of the team. But i respect the decesion. I would however want to hear Costa Nhamoinesu's comments on this."

Outgoing Bidvest Wits forward and Zimbabwe Warriors vice skipper, Cuthbert Malajila admitted the ban is harsh, but he is greatful for the contribution he made to the national team during his time with the team.

"It hurts my brother, but the good thing i played my part and i gave my all everytime. I have good conscience," said Malajila.

"Life is a journey, who Jah bless, no man can curse," he concluded. 

Having made his debut in 2008 in a FIFA 2010 World Cup/2010 Africa Cup of Nations qualifyer against Guinea, the 31-year-old Eiffel Flats-born Malajila has featured 26 times and scored 7 goals for the Warriors- a game ahead of skipper and work-horse midfielder, Willard Katsande (31) who has been capped 25 times and scored three goals in his 7 years period with the national team.
