MUTASA’S BEST TRANSFER WINDOW?
9 February 2018
DYNAMOS may not have managed to get all their transfer targets but coach Lloyd Mutasa says getting three quarters of the targeted players is good enough.
Mutasa spoke to H-Metro after their training at Motor Action yesterday.
DeMbare managed to lure the likes of former ZPC Kariba star Raphauel Manuvure, former Harare City defender Jimmy Tigere, right back Blessing Moyo and former Ngezi Platinum defender James Marufu.
They missed out on Brian Muzondiwa who opted for CAPS United and William Manondo who was not released by Harare City.
But on paper, Mutasa’s transfer business brings a new dimension for the Glamour Boys who looked thin defensively last season while striker Christian Ntouba Epoupa was starved towards the end.
“I think we have a competitive side his year than last year. In the selection of players, maybe I might have missed one or two of the players that I wanted but I got three quarters and I am satisfied,” Mutasa said.
This could be Mutasa’s best off-season in charge of Dynamos when 2011 and 2017 are considered, seasons that he was in charge.
In 2011, Mutasa resorted to the majority of players he had worked with at Kiglon while last year, he had to hold trials to get new players.
Mutasa believes the new players refreshes everything.
“Bringing a lot of new players does not disturb the rhythm. It’s a trend even international clubs like Barcelona adds new players to bring competition because we don’t want people to relax. Probably it will make other players consistent.”
Dynamos will play two friendlies against Mushowani Stars and Buffaloes on at Rufaro on Sunday at 1pm and 3pm respectively.
“We urge fans to come in their numbers to support us. I think we are looking good as a team.
“Probably we can know where we are when we play against another team. In terms of a new goalkeeper, we have one who will be registered. He is around and maybe we will look for a striker,” he said.
Mutasa will also be looking for Masimba Mambare’s replacement after he waved goodbye.
“Regarding Mambare, I wouldn’t want to say much about that, the administration will answer.”
Of late DeMbare seem to have bounced back into the picture for Devon Chafa’s signature.
“Chafa’s work rate is unquestionable, he is a great player. Every coach would want a good player in his team.
“I might not say I have or haven’t made any contact if we have made any plans you will know this week.
“Last season we were second so the option we have is to be first in 2018. I think we have the right material, if we didn’t probably I would have washed my hands,” he said.
The issue that has been troubling Dynamos is that of Denver Mukamba, who is begging for a chance.
“I don’t respond much on what reports are saying. I cannot keep on responding to his stories, if he is a player he knows what to do.
“We can’t talk much on somebody who is at his house. It’s not only now the guy has gone AWOL, the club has visited him more than they have done to any player.
“We have done our part, if he feels he has Dynamos club at heart he should have come and made an effort,” Mutasa said.
