Cape Town - AmaZulu
goalkeeper Energy Murambadoro is wholly satisfied with the progress made during
his brief tenure at the Durban-based club.

Since joining AmaZulu, Murambadoro has already made four
starting appearances in all competitions. It goes without saying that the
journey has not been a smooth one for the Zimbabwean, who has conceded goals in
every match he has played for the club thus far.
He conceded two against Orlando Pirates in his first match
for the club and that was followed by seven more goals against Bloemfontein
Celtic, Golden Arrows and SuperSport United in ensuing weeks.
However, the veteran 'keeper has opted to remain positive
under the circumstances and still feels that something can be salvaged from
this season, despite the odds being stacked heavily against Usuthu.
"It has been great and I must say that AmaZulu is the
most professional club that I have ever played for," said Murambadoro, who
has also competed for Mpumalanga Black Aces and Bidvest Wits during his career
in South Africa.
"The way things are done says a lot about the vision
and the growth of the club," added the Zimbabwean stopper.
Above all else Murambadoro has embraced the challenge that
has come with joining AmaZulu at this stage in the season. That AmaZulu are
fighting to avoid relegation has already been well documented and Murambadoro
does not mind competing for a club that is fighting to avoid relegation. If
anything that has motivated him.
"Yes there is competition in the goalkeeping department
but one needs to continue working hard and it is all about the team at the end
of the day," said Murambadoro.
"There are two great goalkeepers in the team and I have
absolute respect for each one of them. I am also grateful for the opportunity
to be coached by the best goalkeeper coach in Davies Phiri."
The next assignment for Murambadoro and Amazulu will be a
fixture against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Saturday and the Zimbabwean us under
no illusions about the enormity of the task that lies ahead. That said, he does
not expect a hostile reception either and is perfectly comfortable with the
idea of travelling to Mpumalanga this weekend.
"It is not going to be an easy game at all. Aces have
not been doing well recently and I am sure that they will be aiming at bouncing
back against us," he said.
"I will be treating this game just like any other games
that I have played. Yes Aces was my home back then, but now AmaZulu is my new
home and I owe so much to them. If given an opportunity I will give it my
