Kaizer Chiefs’ Willard Katsande gives back to local community through soccer tournament

Posted: 27 December 2014 Time: 12:51

Kaizer Chiefs hardman Willard Katsande is giving back to the community by hosting a football tournament over the holidays.

The 28-year-old has forked out R70 000 for the Willard Katsande Under 18 soccer tournament, to be contested for 20 teams in his home area of Manicaland province.

Katsande’s Kaizer Chiefs team mates Kingston Nkhatha and Ovidy Karuru will grace the occasion that will see teams from Panhalonga, Chipinge and Mutare battle for honours in the two-day competition.

“This is the best soccer competition in Manicaland and we have done everything to our best to ensure that the event lives up to its billing,” says event organizer Panganai Mbaradza.

This is the third year running that Katsande who grew up in Mutare is sponsoring the competition and the Warriors midfielder has pledged to continue doing so as long as he can afford to.

Katsande is back home on Christmas holiday.

Katsande began his career in Manicaland with Frontier Steel before moving to Feruka where he was discovered by Premiership side Highway. He moved to Harare to play for Gunners before embarking on his South African journey to join Ajax Cape Town.

He left Ajax Cape Town for Kaizer Chiefs in 2011.

What will happen if by any chance Chiefs does not win the league:

1. Bakstina will suddendy be labelled a "weak" coach by Zebbies

2. Bobby will suddenly be blamed for the club's lack of depth

3. Nkatha will be confirmed a "cow" by Chiefs fans

4. Gaxa will be labelled "not a chiefs" material

5. Bakstinas cooked CV will be confirmed

6. The "Holding Umbrella" label will be affirmed

7. A lot of already "faint" hearts will be broken

The list is endless. For peace sake let them Zebbies win the league......

Let Kekana get Bafana selection ahead of Mbekile (Stands warmer) first before comparing him to King Katsi.

T-Man wa leKhosi bafana selection is base on coach preferences...there are times when Andile Jali was not part of Bafana squad while he was top of his game and less performing players were selected ahead of him
