DEMBARE’S LOST BIDS
10 July 2018
DYNAMOS have lost the battle to bring back Bret Amidu and Farai Mupasiri on loan and will now have to focus on what they have for a better second half of the season.
The giants had been linked with Bret and Mupasiri, moves that would have brought to three players on loan from the same side.
“Bret is not going anywhere. He was actually on the bench in our last game. Then on Mupasiri, there is nothing as yet,” FC Platinum spokesperson Chido Chizondo said yesterday.
As revealed by H-Metro last week, FC Platinum will decide against giving away their players to strengthen rivals that will end up beating them in the second half of the season.
This comes at a time when the wheels of the pacesetters seem to be coming off.
FC Platinum were beaten 2-1 by ZPC Kariba at Mandava over the weekend, a result that could affect their confidence as the season progresses.
They however remain six points clear after Ngezi Platinum also dropped points after defeat to Herentals.
Clubs like DeMbare however did not do enough to take advantage of that and the Premiership giants know they may need to strengthen the team to stand a good chance in this second half of the season.
However, coach Lloyd Mutasa says they have not covered much ground in signing new players.
“Not much. We just have two slots and when you have these players on contacts, you don’t want to push them away.
“You look at yourself as well as a team and realise that when you get out there, you would like to get a player better than those you have. If we are lucky enough, you could get one or two,” he said.
Mutasa’s decision to field Valentine Ndaba as left back was questioned when they were held to a 1-1 draw by visiting Chicken Inn.
“At first you earn your stripes at the training ground and what follows after that is key, hence Valentine was doing a good job at the training. It is unfortunate that here and there he was losing it. But such as football,” said Mutasa.
