Be Forward Wanderers’ Goalkeepers’ Trainer, Valence Kamzere, has drawn inspiration from five clean sheets he has kept since coming out of retirement by default.
Kamzere also manned the posts in the first-half of a Fisd Challenge Cup quarterfinal against Zolozolo at Kamuzu Stadium, before paving the way for Cameroonian, Enoga Hamza, at half-time.
The big Cameroonian endeared himself to the crowd when he saved Zolozolo’s Overton Ngulube’s second penalty after his team mate, Smith Kadawasi, had earlier fired wide from the spot.
“So far so good for me. It has not been easy, but you cannot buy experience. I would rate the games against Azam Tigers and Premier Bet Wizards as the toughest for me so far,” Kamzere said.
“I am still a trainer. I combine training the keepers with my personal training. The objective of all of us is to ensure that the team is doing well. That is what is more important. For now, I can say I am out of retirement.”
Kamzere was called to duty when Nomads were in a goalkeeping crisis due to injuries of Peter Munthali, Nenani Juwaya and the then unavailability of Richard Chipuwa.
First choice keeper, Chipuwa, is reportedly back in training after shunning training for some days due to death threats over his performance in 1-2 TNM Super League loss to Kamuzu Barracks.
Wanderers’ Team Manager, Steve Madeira, told The Daily Times last week that Kamzere was earning his selection due to his outstanding performance and experience.
