Zimbabwe: Msipa Appeals for Women’s Soccer League Resumption


MIGHTY Warriors skipper Emmaculate Msipa has appealed for the resumption of the Zimbabwe Women’s Soccer League to give players the much-needed competition after a two-year break.

Msipa joined Turkish Super League side Fatih Karagümrük late last year and had a good start when the games kicked-off in that country in December.

The Zimbabwean midfielder has expressed her desire to see more local female footballers breaking through to competitive foreign leagues.

She said the resumption of the local league competition is critical for the players to remain active and makes life easier when they are called for national duty.

“My wish is to see the Zimbabwe Women’s Soccer League resuming in 2022. That way, players remain active and when they are called for national duty, they are in good shape and ready to compete.

“I also just want to encourage female footballers in Zimbabwe to keep focused and working hard so that they can also reach their full potential and may end up playing in Europe, that’s my wish.

“I believe and I know that in Zimbabwe there is great talent. There are talented female footballers, even when you look at the competition this side, you can see that certain players from back home are actually good enough to breakthrough.

“So I wish our women’s league in Zimbabwe could start so that players are always getting the much-needed competition, so that everyone is ready for any tournament that would be played. You never know when scouts come to watch some of these games,” said Msipa.
