Former Warriors defenders; Dumisani Mpofu and Thomas Sweswe have urged local players to take seriously their short football career as soccer is no longer just sport but big business.

Unlike yesteryear, football nowadays is without question a big business and both local and foreign based players are always reminded to make the most out of their careers and remember that there is life after the game.

These were indeed the sentiments of ‘Commando’ and Sweswe on the side lines of their club’s encounter with lower division side, Simba Bhora at ZIFA Village yesterday (Saturday).

Simba Bhora players said they were happy to be accorded such a rare opportunity to play against former big names.

The former warriors duo have since retired from professional football after both local and foreign based illustrious careers.
