Zimbabwe international soccer star, Tino Kadewere has expressed his desire to establish a football academy to nurture and develop talent in Zimbabwe.
Speaking from his base in France, Olympique Lyon star said he is hoping to acquire land from the Harare City Council so that he can build a state of the art football academy in Highfield.
“Our wish is to have a partnership between Harare City Council and our own Highfield Academy. We would like to have our own structures. We would like to have our own structures, if we manage to get land, so that we can establish our football field, classrooms and gym facilities, in the same place so we can help groom youngsters.
“We aim to put up our own grounds, classrooms as well as a gym so that we nurture and develop young talent. I am also hoping that with the assistance from all my former clubs we can work towards uplifting budding footballers and with the connections I now have we can help these young stars realize their dreams,” Kadewere said.
Kadewere’s proposition has generated positive feedback, from the City Council, with the department that deals with sport confident the Warrior’s dream will come true.
The 25-year old is a former Harare City Football Club player and the club gave him a platform to showcase his talent in the domestic Premiership.
His foundation also delivered a consignment of home and away kits to be used by the municipal club when they return to competitive football, next month.
