HARARE City veteran defender and captain David Kutyauripo has said he feels up to playing for more years following an impressive 2014 season.

The 35-year-old on Friday night named as Harare City Player of the Year to cap a fine season in which he was also amongst the PSL’s 11 best players.

“I will carry on as long as my body allows me to. I do not drink or smoke and my ‘clubbing’ is being in the gym I have a lot of energy and can play for a few more seasons. I have always enjoyed football, it is my life,” Kutyauripo said.

Used as a bit-part player last year by former coach Bigboy Mawiwi after being offloaded by Dynamos, Kutyauripo’s career was uncertain.

But he rejuvenated himself this year, showing class of a player who was once a Warriors regular.

The former Caps United and Dynamos player said the capital city club would be a force to be reckoned with next season after escaping relegation on the last day of the just-ended season.

“We did not have a good season this year but I am confident things will improve next year. We have new coaches at the club and everyone is serious about the future.

“Harare City will be a big force next season and we are going for major trophies. We should not be ruled out,” he said.

Kutyauripo’s teammate and forward Martin Vengesai were voted Players Player of the Year on Friday while James Jam emerged as the Most Consistent Player.

Striker Osborne Mukuradare top scored with eight goals as his striking partner Francisco Zekumbawire was named the Most Disciplined Player.

The Most Improved Player was Ray Uchena with Young Warriors defender Munaradzi Diro-Nyenye being the Most Loyal Player having served three years at the club.

Another Young Warrior Takudzwa Chimwemwe was announced as the Rookie of the Year.
