Logarusic charmed by Musona’s versatility


Zimbabwe national team coach Zdravcko Logarusic has applauded Knowledge Musona’s versatility as the former Kaizer Chiefs striker perfectly adapts to his new central midfield position at Belgian side KAS Eupen.

KAS Eupen coach Beñat San José has dropped the Warriors skipper to a central midfield position since the start of the season and Logarusic is impressed with how he has fared.

Musona, on loan from another Belgian top-flight club Anderlecht, has featured in seven games for KAS Eupen in the Belgian Pro League and scored one goal while his side sits on 12th position with one win, five draws and one defeat.

The Croatian mentor Logarusic this week said he would certainly consider playing Musona in central midfield for the Warriors. However, that looks unlikely to happen with pressure from fans expecting their talisman to lead the line.

“We will see, but it is showing he has quality to play different roles and positions,” he said.

“I am generally impressed with him, especially coming from a rough patch, I would say he is a fighter who can go far with his skill and energy.”

He will be hoping his captain maintains his fitness ahead of crucial back-to-back AFCON qualifiers against Algeria in November. With the Zimbabwean League still on ice due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Logarusic looks set to depend on foreign-based players.

Traditionally, Zimbabwe runs its League calendar between March and November, but because of lockdown, football activities were suspended.

His South African contingent, led by Kaizer Chiefs’ Khama Billiat, recently ended their season and have begun preparations for the new season. In France, Marshal Munetsi and Tino Kadewere have been active while Marvelous Nakamba has also played for Aston Villa.

In Tanzania, Never Tigere and Prince Dube have been active for Azam FC while Teenage Hadebe has continued to establish himself in Turkey.
