Barely two weeks after being transfer-listed by Buffaloes Football Club for age reasons, Dananai Chinowawa has refused to head for the grandstands by signing for yet another club.

The 35-year-old has resurfaced at Mutare-based Division One outfit, Mutare City Rovers.
After being offloaded by Buffaloes, many had thought that it was time the former skipper took a rest from the game, as he was also earmarked for a top post in the Buffaloes management structures.
Speaking to Standardsport last week, Chinowawa said, like wine he was maturing with age and still believes his legs can still carry him further.
“My seemingly tired, but experienced legs still have a long way to go. I still have something to offer on the football pitch. l feel honoured to be here because of the respect l am getting from the youngsters. They want to learn a lot from me,’’ Chinowawa said.
Chinowawa hinted that he might be still playing next season: “We can no longer talk of gaining promotion this year because already we are 13 points behind log leaders Hippo Valley. So we need to regroup and challenge for promotion next year. But what I would like to tell these youngsters is that anything is possible in football, we still have 10 games to play.”
He was the army side skipper in 2011, when the team bounced back into Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.
