Chiefs Star Retires After AFCON Exit

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder and Zimbabwe captain, Willard Katsande, has confirmed that he has retired from international football following the Warriors' African Cup of Nations exit.

Katsande, who turned 31 earlier this month, played every minute of Zimbabwe's AFCON campaign in Gabon as they unfortunately got knocked out of the competition in the group stages, and confirmed to reporters after the game that he had called time on his international career.

The Amakhosi man will now be focusing on his club football as he contemplates the future, especially given that his Chiefs contract will be expiring at the end of the current season.

Katsande played a vital role for Zimbabwe as they reached their first AFCON finals since 2006, however it will remain his only appearance at the competition as he hands the reigns over to the younger generation of Warriors.

It now remains to be seen who will be given the armband in Katsande's place, however his presence will be sorely missed in the heart of Callisto Pasuwa's midfield.
