The striker played a crucial role at the Rusape-based side this season after joining the club during the second half of the term.

He joined the side from Division Two outfit Watermark in the same locality where he was tied to two roles as a player coach.

In an interview with sister paper NewsDay Sport Chikwaikwai (30) said he was eyeing another dance in the PSL in 2015.

“I am happy after helping my side to gain Premiership promotion. It was a tough race with Mutare City Rovers, but thank God we managed to beat them,” he said.

“I am promising football fans in Rusape next season that l will be committed to the club and this will be the time to revive my football career. And l am eager to learn football as l want to be a full-time coach after retiring from football,” he added.
