Dynamos court Zuze

HARARE - Castle Premiership champions Dynamos are on the verge of appointing Monomotapa coach Biggie Zuze as Calisto Pasuwa’a assistant, the Daily News can reveal.

Zuze, who still have a running contract with relegated Monomotapa, is expected to replace Tonderai Ndiraya, who stepped down from that position in August.

Pasuwa has been working without a substantive assistant coach since the departure of Ndiraya, following a fall-out between the two. Ndiraya left the Harare giants unceremoniously, citing irreconcilable differences with Pasuwa.

Ndiraya and Pasuwa clashed over various issues following the team’s poor run at the beginning of the season, with plastic smiles characterising their relationship.

And yesterday, it emerged that the Glamour Boys have already tabled their offer to bring on board Zuze and strengthen their technical bench ahead of the African Champions League and domestic campaigns next year.

Zuze, who took over at Monomotapa from the sacked Taurai Mangwiro mid-2012 season, guided the club to fourth place in the Castle Premiership that year. That same year, under Zuze, Monoz also had a wonderful cup run that saw the club reach the final of the Mbada Diamonds Cup.

However, Zuze experienced a turbulent year with Monoz this year before being relegated from the top-flight league as financial hardships took toll on the 2008 Zimbabwean champions.

“Zuze is one of the best coaches we have in this country. We gave him an offer and we now wait to hear from him,” Dynamos chairperson Kenny Mubaiwa told the Daily News yesterday.

“If you look at it, it’s not that Monomotapa were relegated because they were a poor team. Monoz was one of the most exciting teams to watch in the league.

“We are hoping Zuze could bring with him his vast experience in football to Dynamos. We are expecting him to get back to us, maybe Wednesday. We want to conclude our deals as soon as possible.

“In the case that we failed to bring him, we will have to look elsewhere before year end.”

Zuze, a former Dynamos player, is also understood to be on the radar of newly-promoted ZPC Kariba.

ZPC were guided into the Premiership byb Jostein Mathuthu, but club sources say the former Lenghthens gaffer.
