Joey Antipas Urges Govt To Grant Macauley Bonne Zim Passport
Newly-appointed Warriors caretaker head coach, Joey Antipas has urged the government to grant citizenship to England-based Warriors striker Macauley Bonne.
Bonne was keen on playing for the Zimbabwe national team at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt but failed to get a passport in time for the tournament.
In an interview with The Herald, Antipas revealed that he would want the Charlton Athletic frontman in the Warriors next squad. He said:
We have very good players available for selection and my wish is for the authorities to sort out the papers of Macauley Bonne so that we can include him in our next squad.
I have been following his progress and I can tell you that he is a very good player whom I think can add value to the team.
If his papers are regularised, we will have him in the team, we want to make competition for places very tight.
Bonne scored 45 goals in 90 appearances for his previous club Leyton Orient. He was signed by England’s Championship outfit Charlton Athletic during the offseason.
