Mushure commits to DeMbare

HARARE - Ocean Mushure has committed his future to champions Dynamos thereby ending Harare City’s pursuit for the out-of-contract full back.

Mushure’s contract with the Glamour Boys runs out on December 31 and the Sunshine Boys had in recent weeks stepped up their efforts to lure the defender to Town House.

City have already completed the deal to lure Mushure’s fellow teammate Themba Ndlovu away from the Glamour Boys.

With Mushure and Dynamos contract talks reaching a brick way towards the end f last season, the Sunshine Boys had made the defender one of their targets.

The impasse between Mushure and Dynamos seems to have been resolved and a new deal will be signed at the start of next week.  

“Dynamos have been my home for the past three seasons and I’ve decided to renew my contract with the club,” Mushure told the Daily News.

“I’ll be finalising the new contract with Dynamos and I will sign for them on Monday next week.”

The former Monomotapa full back admitted that he had been approached by the Sunshine Boys but nothing concrete had materialised in the negotiations.

“Yes they (Harare City) made contact with me but we did not discuss much since I was committed to extend my stay at Dynamos,” he said.

New DeMbare coach David Mandigora also played a part in convincing the full back to commit to the club.

Mandigora was unveiled at the Glamour Boys coach two weeks ago and takes over from Calisto Pasuwa, who decided against renewing his contract at the end of last season after guiding the club to a record fourth championship on the trot.

“Yogi called me soon after he was named the new coach and he asked me why I was refusing to renew my contract,” said Mushure.

“He told me his plans and vision for the team that is when I decided to stay with the club.”

Dynamos secretary-general Webster Chikengezha confirmed that that they had agreed personal terms with the defender.

“The deal to renew Mushure’s contract is now complete,” Chikengezha said.

“It was not like we were having many differences but it was only a matter of logistical obstacles. We gave Ocean the new contract two weeks ago but we were just failing to find a date to sit down to sign during that period.”      

Since arriving at the Glamour Boys in 2012, Mushure was an instant success at the left back position and also scored some crucial goals in the process.

In the process, the full back has helped Dynamos will countless trophies including their last three league titles.

Meanwhile, Chikengezha said the Glamour Boys will be hoping to tie down a number of their players who will be out of contract soon.

The club boss, however, said they will stand guided by the recommendations made by Mandigora and his new technical staff.

“The coaches will be meeting tomorrow or any day after to discuss about their squad in terms of the players they want to sign or offer new deals,” he said.

“There were certain costs we could carry because we were playing in the Champions League but next year we are not playing in Africa so can no longer carry those costs.”

The other DeMbare players whose contracts are expiring on December 31 include strikers Simba Sithole and Roderick Mutuma, midfielders Deveon Chafa, Tafadzwa Rusike and Stephen Alimenda.

Ocean Mushure made the right decision by committing him self to play for Dynamos in 2015. He is a very good versatile player in my own view. Augustine Mbara is another versatile player that the Dembare technical team should retain in their squad for 2015. Steven Alimenda should be the Dembare anchor man for 2015. Good luck Dynamos in 2015
