We Don't Deserve To Progress: Former Warrior Alois Bunjira

We Don't Deserve To Progress: Former Warrior Alois Bunjira

Former Warriors midfielder, Alois Bunjira, has said he is devastated following Zimbabwe’s 2-1 loss to Malawi in an Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals this Friday in Cameroon.

Zimbabwe looked set to win the match when Ishmael Wadi headed home Onesmo Bhasera to give the Warriors a short-lived lead.

Malawi equalised almost immediately and scored again in the second half to secure the crucial three points.

Pindula News spoke to Bunjira, a ZIFA presidential aspirant, after the match to get his comment on the match. Bunjira could not hide his frustration over the result. He told this reporter:

We lost and I’m devastated. If we can’t beat teams like Malawi, then we don’t deserve to progress to the next phase. We are where we deserve to be, that is going back home. 

Zimbabwe has never been in an easy group than this one but this loss shows that we have a huge problem. Football in Zimbabwe needs a fresh start, I mean everything to do with football.

Asked what went wrong tonight, the former Dynamos and Caps United midfielder said a number of things were at stake. He added:

I don’t know, maybe we don’t have the same school of thought as the technical team. I believe team selection is one of the things we got wrong, maybe I am biased because of the way I played back in the day. 

We needed (Kuda) Mahachi more than any other player who was available today. We needed a Khama Billiat-type of a player who would make defenders run thereby removing pressure from our strikers.

His remarks resonate with those of Benjani Mwaruwari who is working as an analyst for the AFCON tournament with leading South African sports television channel SuperSport TV.

The former Manchester City player, who was supposed to be in the Warriors team but missed out after contracting COVID-19, said a playmaker was needed. 

He singled out Ngezi Platinum Stars player, Denver Mukamba as one player that could have given Zimbabwe better wins.

In a football match there are only 3 probable outcomes ,either WIN ,LOSE OR DRAW .Today our WARRIORS were unfortunate and lost to Malawi's part of the game .Let's give Mapeza and his colleagues a chance to groom a competent squad .THIS SHOULD BE A PROJECT ! It will take probably 2-4 years to achieve this ultimate goal .Mr Bunjira is lamenting about team selection 🤬 There is no way Mapeza could have taken OVIDY to the AFCON FINALS ;a player who was or is still without a club .OVIDY is in no shape to compete at such a tournament at this moment in time ....For DENVER MUKAMBA the main issue is about discipline ;we can not afford to bring into camp players of that calibre into the camp ,the effects are deadly for most parts of the year he wasn't involved in any football action ....MAPEZA put out our best players on the field today basing on his style of play and unfortunately we lost .ZVIRIKO! Let's come back stronger 💪!

Some have talked abt the issues of money and bad governance in zifa. I agree with them bt i personally think the real problem is to do with talent. We need to start with junior development. Since i started following soccer, I've never heard of any Zimbabwen footballer who has won a golden boot or any meaningful award abroad. So you can not expect miracles from these players just becoz they are now representing the nation.

Yours truely
