Warriors midfielder, Marshall Munetsi, on Sunday tied the knot with his girlfriend Nyasha Makove at Umwinzii Gardens.
Munetsi arrived in the country for the wedding, four days ago, from France where he plays for Stade Reims as a midfielder.
The footballer’s French agent, Fredd Ryssen, arrived on Saturday, to witness the wedding.
Speaking to H-Metro, Ryssen said he enjoyed the Zimbabwean environment but had to leave the country early due to other commitments. He said:
I have been with Marshall for four years from the time he arrived in France.
I thought he was of a special character but I came to know that he is Zimbabwean and I have come to witness the culture.
I enjoyed the Zimbabwean environment only but I have to quickly return for my professional assignments.
I will definitely return to have a better feel of Zimbabwean sunshine with a beautiful landscape.
Warriors manager, Wellington Mupandare, commended Munetsi for his “good character” saying he is not the type of footballer who chases after women. He said:
I have been monitoring Marshall for some time and today he has proved his best on and off the field of play.
He married Nyasha, who is not a football fan, but one who loves Marshall.
Some of our footballers are used to marrying female soccer fans who could have dated some other players, making their marriages tricky.
Marshall has not been a footballer who chases women but he is a man of good character.
I would like to urge other local footballers to learn from Marshall in order to reach greater heights and for the sake of their marriages.
Munetsi paid roora / lobola (bride price) for his then fiancée in September this year.
The event was attended by both families and friends of the couple.
