Dynamos to cut short break

HARARE - Dynamos executive chairman Kenny Mubaiwa has revealed that the club will call the bulk of its squad back early from the off-season break to start preparations for next year’s African Champions League campaign, having crashed out in the early stages for the past two seasons.

The Glamour Boys, who were crowned Zimbabwean champions for a record 19 times at the weekend, will be allowed to break for the festive season soon after Saturday’s Mbada Diamonds Cup final against Monomotapa, but the time-out will be brief.

“We are not going to break for long in order to keep momentum going,” Mubaiwa told the Daily News yesterday.

“We have been eliminated in the early stages (of the Champions League) for two years in succession because the Champions League starts when our domestic season is still young. So we are trying to avoid a repeat of the last two seasons.”

Meanwhile, Mubaiwa revealed that the record Zimbabwe champions will only draw a wish list of new players after getting indication of current squad members likely to leave the club for greener pastures.

“After the Mbada final, we will talk to the players and establish who is going and who is staying. We also want to get a clear position on the players who are going to be banned in the Asiagate saga,” Mubaiwa said, adding:

“I understand that some of our best players from last season are targets of South African clubs. We will do everything in our power to keep them at Dynamos, but if we fail, we will have to look at suitable replacements, replacements which will not weakened the team.”
