The 36-year-old Kwekwe-born former star, who played professional football in the top-flight Austrian League, was recently confirmed as a new member of the German football management firm as he looks to venture into the world of player management.
Majabvi’s task will be to identify talented Zimbabwean players for the firm, which represents an array of international footballers plying their trade for different clubs across Europe.
“WSM Marketing & Management welcomes Mr Justice Majabvi as our agent/advisor in Zimbabwe to our agency,” WSM confirmed in a statement.
“Justice Majabvi played with the A-national team of Zimbabwe! He has the experience as a player in Austria with Linzer ASK, in Zimbabwe with Dynamos FC & Lancashire Steel FC, in Vietnam with Hai Phong FC & Khatoco Khán Hoà! Justice will bring his experience into his work,” WSM Marketing & Management said.
Born and bred in Kwekwe, Majabvi’s football breakthrough came in the year 2000 when he was part of the Nemakonde High School team which lost to Churchill in the final of the popular Copa Coca-Cola football finals played in Mutare.
This is where he was spotted by then Zimbabwe national Under-17 coach Nelson Matongorere. From there, he was signed by Lancashire Steel after writing his Ordinary Level exams.
Majabvi rose to the limelight in the maroon and white jersey of the now-defunct Lancashire Steel in Kwekwe before moving to Harare giants Dynamos, where he won a league and cup double in 2007.
The former Warriors player got his breakthrough move to Europe when he was signed by Austrian Bundesliga side Lask Linz on a three-year contract in 2008.
After his contract expired, Majabvi moved to Vietnam where he played for Khatoco Khánh Ho and Vicem Hai Phong FC from 2011 to 2015 before ending his career at Tanzanian side Simba SC in 2017.
