And that is in the wake of leaving his role with Canadian football club, Ottawa Fury early this very year.

The 60-year-old fomer Warriors player and manager made a formal confirmation of his plans in a wide-ranging interview last week.

And that was with the Liverpool Echo following the launch of his autobiography Life In A Jungle in Liverpool, England.

Grobbelaar actually made a return to Zimbabwe in January of this year after spending eleven years in exile.

He has now revealed his plans to meet with President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Arts, Sports and Recreation minister, Kirsty Coventry in November.

Grobbelaar: “I am going back to Zimbabwe for good”

“I am going back to Zimbabwe for a function on November 10.

“And while I am there, I will be sitting down with the Sports minister, Kirsty Coventry, the former Olympic swimmer.” He said.

“Then, I will hopefully see the President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, I need to have a word with him.

“And I would like to get into the political side, we will see what happens with that,” he said.

The eccentric ex-goalkeeper who also briefly served as player-manager of the Zimbabwe senior team in 1997 continued.

He added: “Listen, I am not dead yet, there are still a few chapters to write about me.

“People have said to me: ‘Jeepers, you’ve done things that other people have never dreamt of doing and would never do’.

“It is a remarkable journey that I have been on and I appreciate every aspect of it.

“And that is why we had to get it down on paper in the book.

“I am most proud of my three daughters, the medals I won with Liverpool and just staying alive.

“Also just loving every day because who knows what will happen tomorrow?

“You go through life and you have to live your life because it is a journey.” Grobelaar summed up.
