Benjani Mwarawari knows pressure and expectations quite well.
The former English Premier League striker and Warriors man Benjani Mwaruwari believes his son Benjani Jr is different and should be allowed to be.
Mwaruwari, who son plays his football for the U15 and U16 sides sides at Portsmouth, says he won’t be in any overbearing on his junior. The former international feels Benjani Jnr should direct his own career.
“I don’t give my son pressure, if he manages to come through, it’s all up to him (remain at the club),” he told The News.
“For me it is not about pushing him. I want him to discover and see and love the game without me pushing.”
The Bulawayo-born legend went on to highlight his son’s different style of play. Which is starkly dissimilar to the laborious and ox-like style of his father.
“He is a bit different to me as a player, he dribbles a lot, he scores goals. But if you want to make the most out of the game, you need to have a little bit of hard work.”
“That’s what I am trying to teach him. I told him you don’t have to look at me, just play the game and make sure you’re playing it right and fight and fight every time you train and play — and the rest will follow,” added Mwaruwari.
