Former Caps United winger Emmanuel Mandiranga has described his recent move to Mozambique Champions UD Songo as something he has been looking forward to ever since he started playing football.

“I am very happy to be able to sign for an international team.
“It’s something I have been working towards since I started playing football.
“I am very happy to be honest,” Mandiranga said.

The 27-year old signed a 1 year contract with the Mozambique club that recently secured the services of Dynamos left back Tinotenda Muringai on a 1-year loan deal.

“It’s something I have been working towards since I started playing football.

The two have not played together in the past, but Mandiranga is excited about having a compatriot at the new club.

“I haven’t played with Tino before because I left Dynamos in 2018 and he arrived in 2019, but it helps a lot to have someone who can speak the same language with you.

“I am very happy that we are here together,” he added.

Having played for equally troubled Harare City and Caps United in the 2021/22 season, Mandiranga’s move came at the opportune time.

“I was happy when they said the deal was done.
“It means a lot [signing for UD Songo].
“It shows how much I have worked to reach this level, and it also pushes me to do even more,” Mandiranga added.

Mandiranga has individual targets for the upcoming season, but his major focus is on helping the team achieve its targets, especially retaining the title.

“My personal target is to score goals to help the team retain the championship.
“Hopefully I will be one of the outstanding players in order to attract interest from bigger leagues,” he added.

He will definitely have ‘bigger’ eyes watching him when his team plays its CAF champions league games.
