I’m still the real deal — Sithole

AFTER a nightmarish experience during the 2012 season at league champions Dynamos, Wonder Sithole believes he still has a lot to offer local football.
Sithole has since joined Mutare-based side Buffaloes.

In an exclusive interview with Standardsport, Sithole said his move to Ndombolo, as the army side is affectionately known, was not meant to prove his critics wrong.

“It is my wish to do what I know best on the field of play and play according to the instructions from the coaches,” Sithole said.

He added that he does not harbour any ill feelings against anyone at Dynamos considering that he was offloaded halfway during the 2012 soccer season.

“What riles me is the fact that not even one person from Dynamos came to explain the reasons behind my de-registration.

“It’s sad that I only knew of my off-loading after the window period had lapsed, and I could not make any move,” Sithole said.

Sithole to settle at Buffaloes

Sithole might find himself settling soon as he has retraced his roots to the eastern border city. Sithole was born and bred in Chikanga, Mutare and started his footballing career in the same city.

“Players such as Shepherd Nkata, Prosper Matizanadzo and Tawanda Mareya were my teammates at junior and senior level.

“The club’s assistant coach, Sicho Masachi was my coach during my junior days at Zupco United,” added Sithole.

Sithole graduated from Zupco juniors into the senior team that played in Division One in the 90s before joining Gutu Leopards towards the beginning of the new millennium.

Former Premiership side Masvingo United signed Sithole in 2002 where he stayed until 2007 before he was snatched by Dynamos the following year.

The player had the privilege of playing in the CAF Champions League at Dynamos and is hoping to use that experience at Buffaloes.
