Marshall Munetsi put on a brilliant show in Stade de Reims’ 1-0 victory over Dijon on Saturday.
The performance saw the Zimbabwean being voted the team’s Man of the Match. He played the entire ninety minutes as a right midfielder.
Munetsi made a total of 28 passes with a success rate of 75%. He completed five recoveries plus one interception.
The 24-year-old also created three chances at goal but all of his efforts went off target.
🗳 Un vote serré !

This is the second consecutive time the midfielder has received rave reviews for his performance on the pitch.
In the previous round, a 1-1 draw against Lyon, Munetsi was praised for playing a blinder in the midfield as he added in thwarting the visitors’ attack.
The latest impressive shows comes at a time the player’s availability for the Warriors’ Afcon Qualifiers is shrouded in uncertainty.
However, there was some hope last night after the French sports ministry made a dramatic u-turn on the issue of African players in Ligue 1 and 2 being banned from travelling outside Europe during the international break.
Players who leave the European Union would have been required to quarantine on return, a development which forced the clubs to go against releasing their stars.
