So Munashe – tell us a bit about yourself!
I’m Munashe Sundire, I’m 23 years old and I love football. I was born in Zimbabwe but moved to England when I was 2 years old.
How important is football for you?
Football is very important to me. Some of my best experiences and memories are from football. I’ve met most of my closest friends through football. So it’s played a significant role in my life.
What sort of midfielder are you ?
I’m an athletic box to box or holding midfielder. I like to win the ball back, break up play, get on the ball and start attacks.
Who are the most important people within football environment?
Definitely my mum and dad. For always supporting and believing in me.
After your time by St. Ives Town FC, you moved to Hemel Hempstead Town FC. Did you noticed a lot of difference between these clubs?
They’re quite similar off the pitch. Both good clubs that have a very strong, loyal fan base. On the pitch, very different styles of play and the level is different.
In November 2019 you signed for St. Albans City FC. Why did you choose for the Saints ?
I knew that St Albans was a great club. After I spoke to the Gaffe, I knew it would be a good environment for me to learn and play a lot of games.
What were your highs and lows during your football career?
Lowest I’ve felt in football was most of the 2017/18 season. The whole season I struggled with injuries and didn’t play many games, it was a massive mental test.
Highs are probably doing the double and winning 2 national college cup finals.
You have played at several football clubs. At which club did you learned the most?
I definitely learnt the most during my time at St Ives. Played nearly 40 games, in a team that was the underdog nearly every week. Everyone was expecting us to go down or finish near the bottom. Turned up to every game ready for a battle. I think we were challenging for play offs throughout the season but ended up finishing around 8/9th. That did a lot for me tactically and mentally.
What is the most important football lesson you have learned and who taught you that?
My U18’s manager taught me that ‘Football doesn’t owe you anything’ no matter how well you perform, how hard you work, how many extras you do, it doesn’t owe you a thing.
Munashe, what are your personal goals for the rest of you career ?
To keep learning, developing as a player and to progress up the leagues.
