Celeb Edition with Morris Ruzidvo

Celeb Edition with Morris Ruzidvo

For the last four years, speedy Zimbabwean winger, Morris Rusivo has been terrorising local defenders up and down the land.

The silky-skilled 28-year-old footballer currently plies his trade with Security Systems, who have taken this season’s Botswana Premier League by storm, sitting pretty at the top after eight games.

Celeb Edition takes a few shots with the diminutive midfielder, who makes up for his lack of height with his infectious energy!

Q, You have made quite the impact during your time in Botswana football. Briefly talk us through your journey?

A. I have enjoyed my journey here.

I started at Sankoyo Bush Bucks in 2015 before joining Galaxy, where I won Mascom Top 8.

I then returned to Sankoyo, left for Centre Chiefs before settling at my final home, here at Systems.

It has really been a great journey and I have been accommodated and accepted like a local and I cherish every moment.

I have worked with great coaches and players in my time.

Q. Tell us how your love for football developed?

A. I grew up as a very skillful player.

My love for football dates as far back as my early teens really.

In my neighbourhood people used to say I was destined to be the greatest player!

Peter Ndlovu made me love football – he was Zimbabwe’s best striker and I used to see myself in him.

Q. So your hero was a striker but you ended up playing on the wing – how did that happen?

A. I started off as a wide striker.

I think because of my tiny body and my speed, that is why I have been made a winger.

But I am comfortable with those two positions any day.

Q. Apart from Ndlovu, who is your role model in football?

A. I have many but I would say South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs player KhamaBilliat.

He is the best; each time I watch him play I just marvel at his skill.

Internationally it would be Lucas Moura (Brazilian winger who plays for Tottenham Hotspurs in England).

Q. What is the one piece of advice from a coach that you will never forget?

A. Stay away from alcohol, stay away from women and work hard.

Set your goals and dreams higher and you will make it!

Q. If you were not playing football what career path would you have chosen?

A. I wanted to be a pastor; I really wanted to work for God!

So I would be at the pulpit.

Q. What is your biggest regret?

A. Turning down a scholarship and a chance to go play football in Italy.

I was young and I thought they were going to sell me or something that side – I was young!

Q. Who is your celebrity crush?

A. Hmmm! That is a tricky one.

I don’t have any, maybe because I have a long time girlfriend!

Q. Have you ever been arrested by the police?

A. No, I have never been arrested!

I have only been to the police as a witness.

Q. Have you ever been in a fist-fight?

A. Of course. I have been in those, too many.

I grew up fighting and I enjoyed fighting!

Q. What is the worst thing you have ever said to a friend?

A. Growing up, admittedly I was quite a bad influence on my friends.

I remember one time my friend was cheated on by his girlfriend and I told him to go beat up the guy.

Q. Five things people don’t know about you?

  1. I have a twin
  2. I don’t drink
  3. I don’t have a best friend
  4. I have never been to a club
  5. I don’t drink tea
