The versatile player is currently with his national team ahead of their upcoming 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia respectively.

The former Baroka midfielder opened up to Zimbabwean local publication NewsDay on how his move to Europe helped his career.

“The move has helped me a lot. You realise you have to work hard to meet the requirements in Europe. You have to be strong, mentally and physically. Generally, it helps you improve your game and we just hope to get a good result against Botswana,” the former Buccaneer has been quoted by the Zimbabwean publication.

The France-based midfielder also commented on Zimbabwe’s AFCON qualifiers, emphasizing that underdogs like Botswana should not be taken for granted.

“I think we are in a tough group and will need to work harder to qualify. Algeria are the champions, then there is Zambia and Botswana, which are also good teams. We have played Botswana in the Cosafa Cup and they are not a bad side. Their football has been evolving over the years so its not going to be easy,” Munetsi added.
