Gombo Excited For City Opportunity

Raphael Gombo says he is hoping to prove himself enough to earn a place in Manchester City’s academy.

Zimbabwe’s rising star Gombo, 14, is one of a number of young players that have been invited for a two-week trial with the Premier League champions, who are in action at home to Wolves on Monday evening.

The Australia-based South Coast Baptist College academy member is set to arrive in the United Kingdom on January 21 to start his trials and he is looking forward to the opportunity.

“My parents were in contact with a football agent, who then got in touch with my football academy director and coach who is the one who got in touch with Man City junior coach… and they have invited me for trials for two weeks,” Gombo told NewZimbabwe.com in Harare Thursday.

“I hope to make it into the Man City FC juniors and open opportunities for other players from Zimbabwe. We need this exposure as young players as this motivates you to dream big in your career.”

If Gombo fails to earn a place at City’s academy, he will have a second chance to shine in England with a trial at Bolton Wanderers also agreed.
