FC Platinum skipper and goal keeper Petros Mhari admits that he has become frustrated by his continued exclusion from the Zimbabwean national team.
Mhari has been called into the Warriors provisional squad a few times but has yet to be caped despite being pillar of strength on which FC Platinum have relied on for their success.
He told this publication that it does bother him at times, “With everything that has happened since joining FC Platinum and the success on the domestic front and continental football, it is confusing that I have not been capped by my country” In 2016 Mhari was unceremoniously left out of the Afcon team by coach Callisto Pasuwa. The media questioned and called for his inclusion in vain.
“When you’re at a team like FC Platinum as the captain and competing among the big guys on the African continent for two years running in the group stages then it boggles my mind that I have zero national team caps”, said a concerned Mhari.
“But at the same time I understand and respect the decision of each coach. I know you have a lot of options to choose from. I have to keep fighting and continue to do well for my club”,
The 2016 goalkeeper of the year has been keeping fit at home owing to the devastating ongoing covid19 induced pandemic. Like everyone else the eccentric goal keeper is hopeful football returns soon.
