VETERAN goalkeeper Munyaradzi Diya is relishing the challenge posed by his colleagues in the goalkeeping department at the Glamour Boys and is keen to work hard and challenge for the number 1 jersey.
Competition for the number 1 jersey at DeMbare has heightened with the coming in of Taimon Mvula who is set to add competition between the sticks.
Simba Chinani was the regular goalkeeper at the Harare giants last season and is still around, for now.
Diya says he has a lot to offer having had stints with the Dynamos, How Mine and Highlanders.
The experienced goalminder believes through hard work, he can challenge for the number 1 jersey despite facing stiff competition from Mvula and Chinani, a scenario he says is healthy for the club.
”Obviously we have quality personnel between the posts and for me it is a challenge and that is what football is all about.
“I will just do my part in terms of contributing to the team and it is obviously good for the team knowing that they have quality players in the goalkeeping department”, said Diya.
Chinani is rated as one of the top goalkeepers in the country and usually provides regular service to the local-based national team.
Former Hwange goalminder Taimon Mvula is also highly rated having commanded the number one jersey at the coalminers for several years.
With Diya also available this leaves the Glamour Boys with a healthy situation between the posts.
There is a similiar scenario of competition in other positions after the club acquired several top players.
Tanaka Chidhoba, Tinotenda Chiunye, Albert Eonde, Byron Madzokere, Sylvester Appiah and Juan Mutudza are among several signings made by DeMbare.
