BUILDCON new signing Joel ‘Josta’ Ngodzo is optimistic about his new home saying he is ready for new challenges.

As EXCLUSIVELY revealed by H-Metro, reigning Soccer Star of the Year Ngodzo joined Buildcon from CAPS United together with fellow Zimbabweans Donald Teguru and Takudzwa Chimwemwe.

Ngodzo, Teguru and Chimwemwe’s move came at time when other Zimbabwean players recently faced challenges that forced them to terminate contracts.
Nqobizitha Masuku, Devon Chafa and Patson Jaure all bounced back without seeing off their contracts.

Only Tatenda Mukuruva remained behind but still struggled to get game time.
Investigations by H-Metro this week revealed that the affected players were frustrated by the changing of coaches within a short period of time.


Yesterday Joel Ngodzo said he knows that the move was one of the riskiest but insisted he has been given notes from the former Buildcon players.

“This is one of my scariest moves. I am also scared but that is a plus on me because I won’t rest I know I have to work extra hard to make it here.

“In life you have to do different things to get different results. We cannot stay in our comfort zone forever; we have to take the risk at times.

“I am positive we will make it here, we have the qualities,” said an optimistic Ngodzo.

Buildcon are currently tenth on the log with 20 points from 15 games, they are coming from a 2-0 defeat in the hands of Green Eagles.

Josta will miss this weekend’s home game as he is set to make his debut on Wednesday next week when they host Zesco United at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Josta did not have much time to rest. He said he is not worried about fatigue, he said not having rest is a plus on his side.

“I am not worried about fatigue. I have been in that same road before.

“It is actually a plus on my side because I am still fit, unlike having a long rest. This has helped me stay focused too.

“We only have to adjust adapt, learn and master quickly,” added the reigning 2019 soccer star of the year.


Buildcon team’s core comprises of foreign players, with less than ten local players.
