Lovemore Mitengo retires


Former Moyale Barracks captain, Lovemore Mitengo, has announced his retirement from football.
The 36-year-old Thursday said he was quitting due to persistent injuries. He is eyeing a coaching career.
“I am happy to announce my retirement. It has been a good journey at Moyale and I am happy to say that I have learnt a lot from the club, especially during the time I was captain. I can stand up and say I helped transform the team with the help of Coach Nicholas Mhango,” he said
The versatile defender joined Moyale in 2007 from Cobbe Barracks. He was appointed captain in 2009 and surrendered the arm-band to Gastin Simkonda last year.
Last year, former Moyale coach, Collins Nkuna, converted Mitengo into a midfielder.
Moyale Team Manager Gerald Kanje and Assistant Coach Charles Kamanga were in the dark about Mitengo’s retirement.
“I have heard the news, but it is difficult for me to confirm because I am in Blantyre right now. However, if it is true, then it is a blow to us. Of course, he has been off the pitch for sometime because of an injury, but his presence alone was a motivation to other players. He is a good leader,” Kamanga said.
Mitengo launched his career at Dwangwa United in 2002 before joining Cobbe the following year.
