Zimbabwean Southampton midfielder reportedly on trial at Bristol City




Former Southampton midfielder Rugare Musendo is reported to be on trial with Bristol City.

The 18-year-old Zimbabwean midfielder is currently a free agent after he was released from his Saints deal earlier this summer.

Sky Sports are reporting that the former Arsenal and Chelsea youth player linked up with the Robins’ development squad this week and is currently looking to impress City manager Lee Johnson to earn a contract at the Sky Bet Championship club.

Musendo grew up in London, and is better known as Dave to his teammates. He joined Premiership side Southampton in 2015 and made seven appearances for their under-18s side.

Musendo plays in a central midfield role, is a strong tackler with a good eye for a pass.

The City U23 side were in action today against the Armed Forces with three trialists named on the bench.

The Robins U23s were beaten 2-1 with Jakes Andrews putting City ahead in the first half before they conceded two goals to lose the match. – Bristol Post
