Zimbabwe: Msipa Settles Well in Turkey


ZIMBABWE senior national women’s football team captain Emmaculate Msipa had a perfect start at her Turkish Super League side Fatih Karagümrük, scoring three goals in two matches played so far.

The league got underway on December 18 with Fatih taking on Rizespor in their first game of the season and the Zimbabwean player appears to be settling well.

Msipa weighed in with a goal in their 3-2 win.

The Mighty Warriors captain was on target again in their second match on Christmas Day when they took on Sivasspor. They won 3-1 and Msipa scored a brace in the second half.

The club is currently sitting on third place because of superior goal difference.

Speaking to The Herald yesterday, Msipa said she is pleased with the positive start at her new club and is hopeful of an interesting season.

“So far so good. Everything is okay and everything is on track. We had our first game on December 18, that’s when the league started and we won. I managed to score one of the goals.

“Our second game was on Christmas Day and I scored two goals. It was a great day for me because we won and I managed to score two of the goals. So it shows everything is on track.

“It was a tough game on Saturday and we worked hard to get three points. Both my goals came in the second half, it was tough,” said Msipa.

The Zimbabwean midfielder joined the Turkish side from Spanish club CF Joventut Almassora soon after her last assignment with the Mighty Warriors against Eswatini two months ago.
