SLTV: ‘Can’t Say I Chose AmaZulu Over Chiefs’
AmaZulu FC winger, Talent Chawapiwa, caught up with Soccer Laduma in this SLTV exclusive to share the struggles he had to face in early life to reach the career he enjoys today.
Growing up, the Zimbabwe international had absolutely no support from his parents regarding his dream to become a professional football player.
He recalled stories of how he needed support from his friends because he didn’t have boots to play with.
However, despite the push-back from home, he landed his first contract with a Zimbabwean Premier League side and worked closely with a former PSL head coach.
Once Chawapiwa represented 'The Warriors' in the COSAFA Cup, find out how his move to South African football came about and what happened when he was rumoured to join Kaizer Chiefs and more.
During this honest exclusive, the 27-year-old said…
- "I had the love of football…"
- "They are coming to Zimbabwe to negotiate…"
- "For me, it was like a dream…"
- "I only lasted for five months there…"
- "Football is all about who wants you…"
Do you think AmaZulu will get relegated this season if football returns?
