Mutasa sticks to youngsters
14 July 2016
DYNAMOS face How Mine today and Coach Lloyd Mutasa insists that he will giving game time to young talent within the system.
Already players like King Nasama, Musa Madhiri, and Bret Amidu are enjoying regular game time under Mutasa for the past months.
Nyakasaka scored his second goal of the season on Sunday against Border strikers whilst Amidu and Nasama have scored a goal apiece.
The former FC Platinum coach has promoted two players from the junior ranks to the senior team whilst he is on the lookout for potential youngsters to don the blue and white jersey during the ongoing transfer window.
â€œI am not going to throw all of them into the deep. I will introduce them slowly. It also depends with the matches, some of these game are too big for them. Itâ€™s a matter of balancing the old and young ones. We donâ€™t have to get rid of the older players, itâ€™s a process. However, it must be done carefully,â€ he said
â€œI have since promoted two young players and registered them. I have also signed one Tawanda Macheke. He is 20 and I hope he will add value to the team.â€
Mutasa, who is on a five-match winning streak will be away in Bulawayo to face How Mine this afternoon.
Aging players include Stephen Alimenda, Ocean Mushure, Masimba Mambare, Rodreck Mutuma among others.
â€œThe introduction of young players doesnâ€™t mean I donâ€™t like aging players.
â€œIt doesnâ€™t mean I donâ€™t want them in my system. They are very important players and the reason why I balance my squad is they should complement each other. Unlike other coaches, I prefer grooming unknown names. I am not in the habit of buying big names but I think there is real talent out there.â€
Dynamos have completed the signing of Denver Mukamba on a one year contract as a free agent.
In Bulawayo, Mutasa is likely to field Mukamba and Simbarashe Gorogodyo who was signed from Tsholotsho.
