Munetsi Opens Up On Failed Move To England
10 September 2021
Warriors midfielder Marshal Munetsi says a move to the English Premier League (EPL) failed to materialise despite reported interest from a couple of clubs because he had suffered from some injuries at the time.
Reports claimed that a number of teams including former EPL clubs Sheffield United and West Brom Albion inquired about his services in the recent past.

Other reports also suggested that he was the subject of a deadline day approach from Wayne Rooney-managed Derby County in January last year.
Speaking for the first time about the approaches, Munetsi told NewsDay that indeed he received several offers which he turned down. He said:
There were some offers that came through, but from what we discussed with my agent he said it was not a good time to make a move.
At that time I had suffered from some injuries so I could not be able to move at that moment.
The 25-year-old Reims midfielder has enjoyed a good spell at the French Ligue 1 club where he made 27 appearances, starting in 21 of them to help his club to a 14th finish on the log standings.
This has earned him a one-year contract extension. His deal with the club expires in 2024.
Munetsi has already started in all the four league matches for the French club this season.
