Nyasha Mushweki has discussed what he believes are the reasons his countrymen jump at the first opportunities in the Absa Premiership.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns striker spent five years in Mzansi before jetting out to Sweden to enjoy nearly a decade abroad.
With many South Africans intrigued by the quality Zimbabweans add to the SA game, Mushekwi has revealed that making the move is what many Zimbabwe Premier League footballers sweat in training for.
“Zimbabwe’s got so much talent, I’m sure we all know this, but unfortunately the opportunities back at home are not that fast like in South Africa,” Mushekwi told Kick Off.
“When we get opportunities we take them. We have so many players that I’m positive can play in the top three or five leagues in the world.”
“Maybe we are not comfortable because of our background in Zimbabwe. In terms of our job you want to grow and get more challenges.”
“If you come to South Africa you are still not at home. Let’s say if you move from here to Egypt, you still not at home and still want to grow,” added the former CAPS United man.
