Munetsi Signs Long Term Deal At Stade de Reims
Zimbabwe international midfielder Marshall Munetsi has officially signed a new four-year deal with French Ligue 1 side Stade de Reims.
The 23-year-old joined the French Ligue 1 side on the back of what was an impressive season with South African side Orlando Pirates in 2019.
His initial contract was set to expire in June 2023, but he’s now on a new and improved package until June 2024.
In a statement, Stade de Reims lauded the youngster, describing Munetsi as an ‘impact player and delightful man’. Said the club:
In one season, he’s won a whole club! Impact player and delightful man, Marshall Munetsi continues the adventure with Stade de Reims.

The Zimbabwean international (23-years-old) who appeared 21 times this season is now linked with the red and white club, like his sidekick Moreto Cassama, until 2024.
Reims’ president Jean-Pierre Caillot said Munetsi has justified his signing by the club and is “one of the great satisfactions of the season”. Said Caillot:
Marshall justified the confidence placed in him, his state of mind as well as his performances were remarkable. This extension validates a promising first season.
This signature touches me more since I know all the additional work that the player has done to seize his chance.
Munetsi made 21 appearances across all competitions for Reims, including 17 in the league and registered two assists in the process.
