Team Captain Justice Majabvi of Zimbabwe's champion Dynamos Football Club will go down in Zimbabwean sports history as the man who led his squad to clinch the 2007 CBZ Premier Soccer League title after a decade in pursuit of the prize.
Now Majabvi has been nominated along with 10 other PSL players for the soccer star of the year award, the winner of which will be announced Friday in Harare.
Three of Majabvi’s teammates are also in the running, including Murape Murape, Edward Sadomba and Willard Manyatera.
Other nominees include Evans Chikwayikwayi of Sundowns, Richard Mteki of Lengthens, Method Mwanjali of Caps United, Obidiah Tarubwa and Anzilom Ndlovu of Highlanders, Ovid Karuru of Masvingo United and Kingston Nkata of Caps FC.
Majabvi told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that he is honored by the nomination and hopes to win the award.
