DeMbare move delights Linyama

HARARE - Midfielder Sydney Linyama says he is pleased to have completed his move to champions Dynamos from fellow Castle Premiership side Chicken Inn.

The former Gamecocks star says he is now fully focussed on helping the record Zimbabwe champions achieve more success.

Dynamos are currently building a squad they hope will be good enough to win a third consecutive league title, and Linyama is one of new players the Glamour Boys feel can help assert that dominance.

Formerly with Underhill, the defensive midfielder had an outstanding season with Chicken Inn last year, helping the Bulawayo top-flight debutants to a fourth place finish on the standings.

Speaking after holding his first session with Dynamos at Raylton Sports Club on Monday, Linyama could not hide his excitement after his switch to the capital.

“I am happy to have completed my move to Dynamos,” he told the Daily News. “It’s every player’s dream to play for a big club like Dynamos. It’s one opportunity that I have been waiting for my whole career.”

Linyama admitted playing for Dynamos comes with added pressure, but declared his readiness to make an impression if given a run in the first team.

 “Dynamos is a big team with a huge following. I need to work hard if I am to earn a place in the first team and to appease the team’s fans.

“Dynamos are the current league champions and Mbada Diamonds Cup holders and I am ready to step up my game and help the team defend the trophies.”

Linyama is also excited by the prospect of playing Champions League football this year, aware of the competition he is likely to face from Devon Chafa and Milton Makopa in the holding midfield role.

“Playing in the Champions League can change one’s career and I am relishing the challenge. I am looking at doing well with Dynamos then maybe move to Europe in the years to come,” he said.

“I understand there are also good players who play the same position as mine at Dynamos, but competition is healthy for the club.” - Godknows Matarutse
