Breaking Barriers: Stade de Reims Recognizes Marshall Munetsi’s Rare Accomplishment
Stade de Reims Pays Tribute to Marshall Munetsi’s Milestone Appearance.
Marshall Munetsi, the talented midfielder from Zimbabwe, has been honoured by Stade de Reims after making his 100th appearance for the French Ligue 1 side. The momentous occasion took place on Sunday, as Munetsi featured for the full ninety minutes in Reims’ closely-fought 2-1 defeat against Marseille.
“100 matches in Red and White, let’s celebrate our tireless midfielder Marshall Munetsi,” the club announced in a translated post on Twitter.
Munetsi expressed his gratitude for the honour, saying
“Thank you @StadeDeReims le travail continues,” which translates to “the work continues.”
The midfielder joined Stade de Reims in 2019 from South African top-flight club Orlando Pirates, signing an initial five-year deal.
However, following his impressive performances on the pitch, the club offered Munetsi a new contract last year that will keep him at the club until 2026. The young player has quickly become a key member of the team, earning plaudits for his hard work, determination, and technical ability.
As a tireless midfielder, Munetsi has a strong work ethic and is known for his ability to break up play, win tackles, and distribute the ball effectively. He has also shown a willingness to get forward and contribute to his team’s attacking play, often making well-timed runs and taking long-range shots at goal.
Munetsi’s milestone appearance is a testament to his dedication and commitment to the club, and the recognition he received from Stade de Reims is a clear indication of how highly he is valued by his teammates and coaches alike. As he continues to hone his skills and develop as a player, there is no doubt that Munetsi will be a force to be reckoned with on the pitch for years to come.
