Tsholotsho’s Marion wants Buffaloes move


NEWLY-promoted Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Tsholotsho FC goalkeeper Chang Marion (21) is considering a move to fellow top-flight side Buffaloes FC ahead of the upcoming season.


The Mutare-bred and born youngster capped a fine season by helping his side into PSL and was  voted  into the Southern Region 2014 Machache Meats Awards Soccer stars finalists.

The accolade was eventually won by his former teammate striker Edmore Chirambadare who has reportedly joined Bulawayo-based PSL side Chicken Inn.

In an interview with sister paper NewsDay Sport from his base in Mutare yesterday the talented goalminder said he wants to play for Buffaloes if they give him a good offer.

“I still have a running contract with my side (Tsholotsho FC) until the end of this year. Yes, l helped them into the PSL, but l want to be home now. l hope they will give me clearance if we agree on something.

“So far l am eyeing to join Buffaloes if they give me a good offer and l would be training with them in the upcoming weeks to stay in shape ahead of the coming season. I think l can perform at the same level with goalkeepers at Buffaloes. But l have received offers from one or two clubs in the country,” he said.

If he joins the army side he will compete for the first choice position with Blessing Mwandimutsira and Chengetai Tandadzayi. 

Marion, nicknamed Chigova after former Dynamos goalkeeper George Chigova because of his imposing body, played for Eastern Region Division One football side Mutare City Rovers in 2012.
