Former Buccaneers midfielder Marshall Munetsi has given back to the less fortunate in a very impressive way.
Munetsi left Pirates to join Stade de Reims in France and is earning plaudits for some very impressive performances of late.
Even more impressive is Munetsi's sense of humanity as he recently paid for the school fees of 60 underprivileged children.
By way of his charity organisation, Marshall Munetsi Foundation, the talented midfielder donated the funds to help the children in his hometown of Mabvuku in Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwean media outlet The Herald reported that Munetsi's challenging upbringing and passion for education inspired him to make the generous offer.
Munetsi said, "It's a challenge for kids to get a better education when they can't go to school because of lack of finances."
The 23-year-old touched on his love for children and why he values education so much.
He said, "Education is key to everything we do in life and when you are educated there are greater chances you will have a better life, and it helps you to make the best decisions in life."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Munetsi is in a rich vein of form for his club and featured on five occasions this season - one of which came in the 2-0 win over Neymar's club, Paris Saint-Germain.
