Former Dynamos forward, Valentine Kadonzvo, has revealed that he holds no grudge against Dynamos and that he loves the team despite the controversy that marred his move to Chicken Inn early in the season.
Kadonzvo has been said to be seriously considering going back to Dynamos as playing with the backing of Vietnam is to his delight.
“There is absolutely no bad blood between me and Dynamos. I love Dynamos Football Club. They gave me the opportunity to pursue my dream. The fans are incredible. I have fond memories of my time there. At some point, if the opportunity presented itself in the future, I would seriously consider it (playing for Dynamos.) It is always a delight to play with the backing of Vietnam,” he said.
The forward who has had a magnificent season at Chicken Inn said that support he has received at the club has helped him to gel perfectly.
“My first season at Chicken Inn has been a refreshing challenge. I’ve grown as a footballer, but also as a person. It’s a squad with lots of quality- and the competition for places is always intense. But the support I have received from the coaches, teammates and administration has helped me fit in seamlessly, “he said.
Kadonzvo seems to be so focused on having his name engraved in the history of the country’s game as he did not hide his desire to win trophies.
“Well, two things really motivate and drive me. Firstly, it’s the desire to become a better player, with the view to eventually become one of the best. Secondly, it is to win football matches, and trophies.
“Winning the league would cap our season. That is the prime objective. Getting a spot on the calendar will be icing on the cake- but the league means more,”he added.
Kadonzvo said that he was happy to break into the national team and also hopes to secure a move to foreign countries.
“At this point I would like to move to South Africa to and it would be a good start but eventually I want to be destined to Europe. It’s every player’s dream to play in Europe at some point. Again, it’s every player’s dream to represent your country. It’s also a platform to showcase my ability to a larger audience. So it was a dream come true to be in the Chan team.” said Kadonzvo.
Valentine Kadonzvo has previously played for Twalumba, DSTV and Dynamos. His biggest break was when he represented the Harare giants which led to his Chicken Inn move. He has been a revelation this season and he said that 2020 football will still reign supreme in his life. Football, obviously.
