Willard Katsande, few months ago was reportedly disclosing to the media in Zimbabwe what he was told by his boss at Kaizer Chiefs and his counterpart from Orlando Pirates.


Katsande announced his retirement from international football in January last year, following Zimbabwe’s 4-2 loss against Tunisia in their final group stage match of the Gabon Africa Cup of Nations showpiece.

In confirming his return to the Warriors, as he aims to add onto his 19 caps for the national team, the 32-year-old reportedly told Zimbabwean media that he was inspired by both the bosses of Chiefs and Pirates in making his decision.


“There are a lot of people I have been speaking to, and when I retired (from international football), the chairman of Kaizer Chiefs (Kaizer Motaung), and legend Irvin Khoza said I should go back to the national team because I still have a lot to offer, so those are some of the things I considered before reaching this decision,” Katsande reportedly told Zimbabwean publication NewsDay.
