Musona hopeful he’ll recover in time for Warriors Afcon qualifiers
By Innocent Kurira
Warriors captain Knowledge Musona has told fans that he is unsure of when he will play again, although he remains hopeful for contention in the national team’s assignments next month.
The Warriors resume their Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia in the last week of next month.
Yesterday, coach Zdravko Logurusic named a 38-man provisional squad for the crucial ties, but conceded that about 10 players, including some of his European stars, might not feature in the two games.
There are concerns over the availability of Musona and Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat, as are battling to recover from injuries.
Musona took time to respond to questions from his followers on twitter during which he admitted that he is still on the side lines.
Asked by a number of followers on his recovery and if he will be fit for the impending matches, he said: “Thanks for asking, getting there day by day. Only time will tell.”
Quizzed by fan Emmanuel Dziva if he would be joining camp, Musona simply replied: “Yes sir.”
