Mutasa speaks on Dinyero sacking

ZVISHAVANE - FC Platinum coach Lloyd Mutasa says there will be no pressure on him when his side take on CAPS United at Mandava Stadium tomorrow days after firing his friend long-time assistant Masimba Dinyero.

Mutasa, who has been Dinyero’s boss at almost every club that he has coached since 2002, says he has no hard feelings despite allegations that the acrimonious separation with his former assistant was based more on mistrust and sabotage more than on professional grounds.  

The former Dynamos midfielder insisted the dismissal of his former Glamour Boys teammate was in search of a more competent person to strengthen the Platinum technical bench.

“I am not going into the CAPS United match with any pressure over what happened during the week. The sacking of Dinyero is nothing personal, it was reached based on our endeavours to strengthen our technical team. There set targets that we failed to meet and now we have new targets. I believe I need someone with new ideas to work with,” said Mutasa.

Platinum held a farewell send-off of the former assistant coach at Mandava where he bade farewell to the players.  Dinyero thanked the players for their support and professed his undying love for the team.

“You need to continue working hard and wherever I am will continue to support the team,” said Dinyero in his short speech.
