Ngezi Platinum Stars defender Carlos Mavhurume is gearing up for a challenging return to the field after enduring a severe injury that sidelined him for most of the previous season.
The former Herentals and CAPS United player faced a career-threatening knee sprain early in the 2023 season, forcing him to miss out on the team’s victorious league campaign.
However, Ngezi Platinum Stars stood by Mavhurume throughout his recovery process, providing him with necessary medical treatment and support. Grateful for the club’s unwavering assistance, Mavhurume expressed his appreciation, acknowledging the efforts of the club’s management and coaching staff.
“I thought my playing days were over at one point, but thanks to the support from everyone at Ngezi Platinum Stars, I’m now on the path to recovery,” Mavhurume stated.
“I’ve been gradually reintegrating into training sessions, following the recommendations of my coach, Takesure Chiragwi. While I currently train once a day, I’m optimistic about increasing my workload and joining the team for double sessions soon.”
Reflecting on his aspirations, Mavhurume emphasized the need to regain his top form and contribute effectively to the team’s success.
“I understand the challenges ahead, and I’m determined to work hard and reclaim my place in the team. My teammates performed admirably in my absence, and I’m motivated to match their standards upon my return,” he added.
Prior to his injury, Mavhurume played a pivotal role in Ngezi Platinum Stars’ defensive setup, showcasing versatility in various positions. With the new season approaching, Mavhurume is focused on overcoming his setback and making a significant impact on the field once again.
Meanwhile, Ngezi Platinum Stars have bolstered their squad with the addition of three new players: Talent Chimboko, Never Tigere, and Richard Hachiro.
